Bobby Logic – “Mood Shifter”
Bobby Logic believes art is an awakening of the inner soul, a mood shifter. He states, “Art is a time machine with the ability to bring people of all cultures together on an intellectual and physical level of thought and being. Colors emotionally electrify or soothe minds and bodies of all who allow its radiant beauty in. The insight of art sends the imagination on a magical journey through time and life.”
