The Minimalist



While doing my daily “let me learn something new about Art” research I’ve stumbled upon the a blog curated by Joshua Fields Millburn & Ryan Nicodemus where they write about living a meaningful life with less tangible and intangible baggage. Something we as Americans could learn something from. We are daily bombarded with constant advertising for new things that we don’t necessarily need but desperately want.

The What is Minimalism article on their site brought me back to thinking about the task I’ve many times thought of embarking on but always end on not following through. While I can’t honestly say I will completely devote myself to having a minimalist lifestyle just yet, I do want to slowly morph my surroundings so one day I can perhaps call my self a Minimalist.

Minimalist Art derives from the reductive aspects of Modernism and is often interpreted as a reaction against Abstract expressionism and a bridge to Postminimal art practices.

This relates to the Minimalist lifestyle movement, where you stripped down to just maintaining the essentials.

Quality over Quantity- Invest in timeless pieces that you will be able to wear for years, decades to come and why not, even save them as heirlooms for your off springs. I myself am trying to slowly transform my wardrobe into having these timeless pieces you can always go back to and will work for any occasion. Below are some of the pieces I am currently eyeing.
