I have believed for many years that it is a part of our DNA to leave proof and signs of our existence for future generations to discover. From the cave paintings of Lascaux to our modern day graffiti artists, there have been those among us who have felt the need to leave our mark for others to see.
There have been many debates as to what is art and what isn’t. Many artists have taken sides choosing to either live in the past and to create imagery loosely based on 19th century idealism, while others have chosen to push boundaries so far that the general public have great difficulty understanding the work they create.
Artists really shouldn’t be concerned about whether what other artists are doing is or isn’t art. What they should be concerned is whether they are doing enough of their own work.
Let art history be the judge!
Do your work!
