FOCUS Magazine & Galleries champions and supports users who create art on virtual platforms including the platform called Second Life. Literally thousands of users use the same tools and concepts as photographers in “real life” however their artform has yet to be discovered and appreciated. Take a look at our featured artists, or our “Editor’s Picks” portion of the magazine. Without a doubt, you will be amazed by the talent and creativity that users produce and strive to share.
One big difference between art in “real life” compared to art created in a virtual platform is that art can be created in an easily accessible way. For over two generations, many of our communities have been using technology as a base for scholastic achievement, job training and also for personal use such as email. With these skills, one can learn to create beautiful photos in a virtual environment. And because this art form is so accessible, more people are able to share in the joy of artistic creation that for centuries included only the elite and highly trained.
Discover Our Artists
We strive to raise awareness about how art enhances individuals, society and the environment. Art is a powerful catalyst for positive change in the world. I can produce dozens of scholarly scientific articles that prove that creativity is an important path to happiness. And if we really want to change the world, it begins with individuals. By encouraging artistic creativity and shining an appreciative light on those who create, we positively enforce an individual’s feeling of importance and worth. JOIN US in making people happy. The end result will be our own increased happiness and we will make the world a better place for all of us.
