What is the life of art?

Art is not just a “work” for those who create it, art is a way to live. Artists don’t just make art, they breathe in it. They live through it. Choosing art means engaging with the world through curiosity, wonder, and observation. It means paying attention and having a deeper look at life and our connection with it. Art requires us to open our minds and think outside the box. To live through art means choosing to listen to the voice of our hearts.

Artists pay attention to what their soul says and they answer their callings. This is how art gets birth. Even when artists don’t make art, their minds still keep engaging with it. We cannot escape from art once we choose it and it chooses it. Choosing to live through art is to develop the courage to experience both sweetness and darkness. Artists live an infinite life. To make art is to make things that contain the ability to exist even after you are gone.

Art gives us a different lens to look at life. It shows us what we cannot view normally. It makes us capable of exploring the mysteries of inspiration. To live with art is about choosing a creative approach in all areas of life. It’s about keeping our eyes wide open and seeing all that life offers us. And the life of art is not easy, it’s never easy, but if you love it, then it is worth keeping and going with.
