Throughout history the visionary artist has expressed the essence of the human experience. Early human paintings found on cave walls depicted man’s strife, struggle and survival, told and passed on the story. Our forms of artistic expression evolved with us. Thanks to technology we have the ability to capture these artistic expressions and share them with others.

Each artist tells his or her own unique story reflecting his or her culture and life experience. If we read the writings of Homer, Woolf, Shakespeare, study the paintings of Raphael, Da Vinci, and Picasso or observe the sculptures of Donatello, Michelangelo, or Rodin we are exposed to the creative essence of those artists.

For centuries, the power of the written word has proved to be something incontrovertibly sublime. The written word has saved lives, circulated powerful ideas, preserved traditions and memories, and so much more.

101 Artistic Toastmasters showcases the multi-cultural, multi-diverse and multi-dimensional individuals who each joined the global Toastmasters International family.
