Expressing Ideas and Communicating

Sharing your ideas and belief with the audience at large with art is one of the most effective ways to do so. Artists write poems, monologues, make movies, paintings, sculptures to express their ideas.

To Inspire or Provoke an Action

Not only visual content like painting and movies, but any form of art can inspire the spectators to take action. When humans feel untouched by anything happening around them, a beautifully executed art jostles them from the core and forces them to start thinking.

Gina Gibney

Gina started her dance company to choreograph pieces that will become the strength of men and women. Plus, her aim is to reshape the lives of those communities whose voices need to be heard.

Harrell Fletcher

Modern artist Harrell Fletcher believes that anything anyone calls art is art. For him making art is not about expression, love, emotion, beauty, or anything like that. Harrell Fletcher is an artist because he wants to live an interesting life.

Kwame Dawes

Kwame Dawes’s notion of creating art or writing poems, novels, and books is to gain some control in a world riddled with chaos. He wants to share his views via his writing and inspire others to comprehend how he sees the world.

James Sturm

The famous cartoonist has never stopped at a single reason for making art. For James, there is a new adventure to live every day, a new perspective to share, a new way to cope with life’s events.

The Bottom Line

We make art because we love its beauty, we make art to inspire others, we make art to share what we feel, and we make art to want the people to face reality. Art is one of the greatest things to happen to humankind. There is an artist in each one of us, “Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up.” beautifully said by Picasso.
