Performance Art Piece by Artists The Northern Monkey and David Pita

"Your Past Is Not Your Present" is a performance art piece by myself and fellow artist David Pita.

Expressing myself with paint and movement brings me the biggest sense of freedom and joy. This mural was created in order to celebrate that simple notion.

Our expression and creativity can get dampened by so many factors of life as we get older due to the pressures of society, family, finances, work, media, friends and many more things.

To overcome this we have to break the mould, retrain the mind and break out of our comfort zone. For me it's about pushing my own creative boundaries so I feel so free it makes me cry.

What is it that will make you cry with joy? Get out there into that big ass world and make it happen and remember that your past is not your presence.
