What is Art?

There is no one universal definition of ART because art can be so many things.

It’s not just a drawing but can also be a collage. Mosaics, prints, photography, sculpture, video, painting, animation, and many other forms.

It’s not just delightful but can also show rage, suffering, sorrow, and many other emotions. It’s just not beautiful but can also be Bizarre, disturbing and controversial.

It’s not just in galleries or museums but can also be in public buildings, on the streets, in the rooms, on the table.

In fact, art is everywhere for everyone.

After all, what is art?


The definition of art has transformed over time and context.

The most important thing is what do YOU think is art?

As the saying goes.

“Art is in the eye of the beholder, everyone has their own interpretation”

Why do we care about art?

One of my favorite answer from Pablo Picasso:

“The purpose of art is washing the dust of daily life off our souls.”

And science says-

Art makes you a better thinker, a better person. Art makes the world a better place, that’s what we care about.
