Baryn Futa becomes distressed when he sees a brilliant artist fail to get enough appreciation to thrive. The idea of the “starving artist is a terrible one to him, which is why he does everything possible to rectify that situation. Most people tend to agree that art is beautiful and, in the abstract, art appreciation is a key element of every human society. Unfortunately, art is too often taken for granted and artists are treated as an afterthought and not as an important part of society.
That is ultimately what drives Baryn Futa's very fine work in the support and preservation of fine art. He not only supports the fine arts as a prominent collector, but also as a benefactor and as a lover of fine art. Above all else, Baryn Futa firmly believes great art is a defining part of any culture. The art of the past puts us in touch with our ancestors in a way that nothing else can. That means modern art will eventually create a bridge to future generations and treat art preservation as a critical task.
