What is art? This question has been asked throughout the ages, by some of the most brilliant minds to have ever graced this earth. And yet, it remains unanswered. Perhaps the reason why we have yet to come to a consensus on what art is, is because it is infinitely subjective. One person's trash is another person's treasure, after all.
How Do You Define Art? To some, art is a painting hanging in a museum. To others, it's a daisy plucked from a field and given as a gift. It can be anything from the Mona Lisa to your grandmother's china cabinet. It can be a song, a dance, a story. It can be something you created, or something that already existed but that you looked at in a new way.
In short, art is whatever you make of it. And that's what makes it so special. Art is whatever you want it to be. It's something that should make you feel something—anger, joy, love, sadness, amusement. It should make you think, and question everything you thought you knew. Art is life, and life is art.
Art is whatever you make of it. It doesn't have to be traditional or expected. It can be something as simple as a smiley face doodled on a piece of paper or as complex as the Sistine Chapel. It can be something that existed long before you were born or something that you created yourself. There are no rules when it comes to art—anything and everything can be art if you let it be. So go out into the world and create your own masterpieces—the sky's the limit!
