How do you Define Art?

How do you define what “good art” is? People have different definitions and vague phrases that describe art. When it comes to defining and evaluating modern art, people often struggle. One critic may dislike a piece that is shown in many art galleries, people staring at it in awe. What is included in the label art? Is graffiti art? Art has always played an important role in history with movies, music, architecture, paintings, fashion and so on. It has such an impact by distracting us from the mediocracy of life. It inspires us to become better people. Art encourages us to think outside the box. Any art that can do that is good art to me.

“Art is completely subjective. It’s up to the viewer to decide if it has merit.” Ken Danbury. I love how art encouraged me to step outside my comfort zone, expressing myself in ways I haven’t before. “I found that I could say things with colors and shapes that I couldn’t say before – things I had no words for.” Georgia O’keeffe. When I look at my canvas with weird colors and shapes, it makes sense to me.

Here is my latest creation:
