What is art?

Art is a perception of the world that desires your emotions. It need not be beautiful, it need not be something you would deliberately seek out; it could be something ugly and repulsive. It is something that captivates with deep emotion and its existence overwhelms.

    Art is an extension of our visual perceptions. Paintings and sketches allow us to regale the true spirit of life, the atmosphere, which sometimes can not be captured in a photograph. Art is not a mirror to hold up to society rather it is the expression of sensitivity of an artist towards the world tus it then becomes a hammer to shape the society rather than a mirror

    I agree that art and artists shape society. However, I believe seeing the artist as subject and art as his object can obscure the full sense of the term. Art acts on us as much as we create art – not only ‘works of art’ such as paintings, but a life as art.
