Art from the perspective of artists
I Googled famous artist quotes for their definition and perspective on the subject specifically, and got a ridiculous amount of diverse definitions. Here’s some of them:
“Making money is art and working is art and good business is the best art”~ Andy Warhol
“If I create from the heart, nearly everything works: if from the head, almost nothing.” ~ Marc Chagall
“The main thing is to be moved, to love, to hope, to tremble, to live.” ~ Auguste Rodin
“Art is what you can get away with” ~ Andy Warhol (another one, because we can)
“Art is not what you see, but what you make others see.” ~ Edgar Degas
You see, even they couldn’t some down to one definition. So, how do we really decide?
Actually, I don’t think we should. I don’t think anyone should. I think we should all look at everything and see art. I think the world is artistic and everyone in it is an artist. I think the guy walking past me in different coloured shoes and a pink hat is an artist in his own mind, creating a piece of work in the clothes he is wearing. I like to believe that the engineer that built the apartment block that I live in, is an artist too.
So, the most important thing I am speaking about today I guess is, I would like everyone to open their minds and think that everything you see is art. Having this mindset will create a much more beautiful world, and I believe, much more beautiful attitudes in life.
