    What Is Man, Woman?

    What are we without art? What can we say we are if we do to have art and music? Are we not just animals whose only purpose without art would be to continue the species? We enrich human life with our art and our music!

    Artists are people who are able to express

    their innermost thoughts and emotions into an image or sound that metaphorically represents them.

    Moon Flower

    This flower is not visible at day, or when light shines on it. It's also not visible when there is no moon that night. It's werewolves, vampires and more. You'd think duh a thing was impossible to see, but, fortunately, you're wrong. Moon flower never ever rests, it's always on...

    Why I Love Art :)

    Art takes up so many different forms, like music, photographs, paintings, collages, literature, performances, films and probably many more. Food even. I think we need art because without it, how do we see differently? They are expressions of things, physical or emotional, and...

    I Believe There Is a Need For expression

    Whether it be through writing, music, painting, drawing or making some god-awful conceptual art piece, at least you are expressing your thoughts and emotions through something.

    What Do We Know About Cavemen

    everything we learn from cave art. The need for art is primal. As it is for music, dance and play. That's the human imperative. Unless you're Republican.  These are the guys who want to defund the arts Except if you're the Koch Brothers. Then you fund the opera, the ballet etc...

    When I furnish a home at the conclusion of any

    of my house flipping projects, I always include some art work as part of the furnishings. It could be an abstract painting, a decorative vase, or some simple figurine. It adds beauty to a room and to the house in general.

    I believe that even in nature we can find some

    forms of the most beautiful art ever. But art is just not about photographs or paintings, it's what inspires the artist to take these photos or draw or paint these drawings. I turn to art for so many things whether I just want to doodle, or spill my feelings out into a picture...

    This Is Hardly A Story!

    I want to go for this ceremics workshop in a small, isolated village in the hills, in Italy and so wish I had a friend who shared my interest and we could plan to go there together. When will I learn to start enjoying things without needing others? :(

    Art is communication.

    Ideas. Feelings. History. Medicine. It lifts your psyche to new ways of conceptualising.

    For me, I think art is a necessity no matter what form it comes in. Whether it's theatre, music, visual art, dance, writing, film, anything where emotions are expressed, I think it's something that should always be available for people to explore and enjoy. Honestly, art is a way...

    Get It Out Of Me!

    Art, as an idea, puts people off; it sounds too grandiose.  It has something about it that suggests self-glorification, narcissism, all those evil selfish things.  Or, worse, some kind of technical skill - perspective, tone, grammar or trying to get the glint in someone’s...
