Celebrating Diversity #14

Sun Dec 23, 2012, 11:25 AM
What is art? Probably one of those questions that will remain without a definite and universal answer. However I think we all can identify art when we see it, even if we don't know to explain why.

Art has a very personal definition and there are no rights or wrongs. For me, art is to find beauty and something worth taking the time to pay close attention to, in everything that surrounds us.

Some people say everything is art. Some agree and some don't. Regardless of your position in this debate I think is safe to say that maybe not everything is art, but everything has the potential to be art, if we know where to look.

In a world as diverse as ours, there is an infinite plethora of things which are beautiful in their own way, it's just a matter of having that sensibility to see it.

For me, an artist is someone who has learned to see that something in things, no matter how small, big, pretty, ugly, old, new, common or rare they are.
