We all have different ideas about what art is.
How important is art? What is art? Who gets to decide?
That is something society has been arguing about for centuries.
“Art is not decoration. That’s absolutely foolish. Art is exploration. Artists train people to see.”
Purposeful Art aims to show the soul of the artist, because every great work of art contains a little piece of the artists themselves.
Art is deep and explosive. It challenges perspectives and shakes the foundations of entire societies. When we learn to see the intensity and struggle behind it, we are filled with a sense of awe.
"We need beauty, because it makes us ache to be worthy of it."
