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.

On the very rare occasions that night falls
The blanket of Noir that bleeds across the hollowed sky
The clouds either muted or dispersed as they give way to the true wonder that we often take for granted
This I dedicated to the array of white specs burning hundreds of miles away, who I hope look down on me with discontent or doubt.
As a child, the concepts of stars always came down to another object I would either learn about or come obsess over due to their beauty as a whole.
I fear them
I fear their existence, which threatens to contradict mine the more I ponder.
When a star ceases to exist, It goes out with an array of colour, chaos and destruction, calling attention to all to witness its final act of ethereal beauty before...
That there in all its glory is my true cause for distress
A star's story is preordained
Set in stone
Yet I am left to sit and wait, questioning the reason and purpose for my being on this massive sphere
While in itself a minuscule dot is given no choice but bow to the vast majesty of the Universe.
It mocks me...
The inability to perceive, decipher, rationalize
Yet the ability to Exist and choose Existence Alone.
Never plagued by the fear of the unknown
I Wish to be
