What is art? According to the Oxford English Dictionary, art is:
the quality, production, expression, or realm, according to aesthetic principles, of what is beautiful, appealing, or of more than ordinary significance
So, I guess art=beauty. I think that we as artists should always keep in mind that art's purpose is to showcase the utterly stunning aspects of our world.
To overcoming life's largest struggles...
Art appeals to our sense of admiration. So go ahead. Be an artist, but also be an underage voice.
