With the clear intent to open space for the magnificent, we created Show Your Fire! A bold initiative designed for burning souls yearning to express and connect authentically (and anonymously).
2021 was a turning point in human history, and as such, we deem artistic expression a necessity on an individual and collective level.
LUAN offers this gift as encouragement, reassurance, an open-ended excuse to be who we wish to be and say what our heart desires.
Our best hopes are set on beauty, and our best bets are placed on art. We are sending a signal for a universal connection, and we sincerely hope you pick it up.

The life of your creations
is doubling up in size.
You’re telling me that deep inside.I hold a piece of art?
That may be what is in my gutis more than just a fart?
I’m telling you that from your view,nobody else could share it.
And no one else could fill your shoes,so you just gotta let it.
So come on, grab a pencil,
some paper and be brave.
Remind me,how does art become?
Which is the wayto start?
How much of life must I portray?
Don’t know if I’m that smart.
You’ll find some inspirationin everything you see
Maybe you can find a book,some words to set you free!
Hello, dear pieceof paper.
You need an artistic outlet if you’re a human who’s alive.
It’s keeping me
from doing stuff
It’s even keeping
me from rest
You can feel it, all of it bubbling up inside!
But what if what I want to shareis it just not good enough?
I couldn’t bear toshow myself
to find it just too rough.
What’s growing upinside you
deserves to see the light.
Maybe what your heart creates
will make someone
All right, all right, I’m biting
I’m letting it all be
I’m ready to stand proudlyby whatever comes from me.
will help yougrow and thrive.
So here I stand before you;my cards are on the table.
I hope you join this mystery gift as much as you are able.
No one will ever judge you.
No one will ever know.
