What is art? Art, beauty and self expression somehow seem so connected and yet have such different meanings to themselves. Yes, art is an attempt of self expression in it’s purest possible form, and there’s beauty in that, beauty that comes from wanting to connect to the world outside, being part of of a whole, of having too much to contain in one’s own mind.
Not being able to express oneself in one of the more conventional forms of human communication is what creates the urge to create art in the mind of the artist. Creating art is not a choice, the artist ends up doing what he does for there is no other way! What can he do when there is so much he wants to give out to the world outside of his mind and doesn’t know how? It’s not just about being understood, but to make space in one’s own mind by giving out what is possible.
