Art makes one live life fully. It sensitises and cultivates, giving a sense of purpose beyond yourself . One actively seeks beauty and truth and begins exploring a community of people who share your passion. New ideas form, new perspectives emerge, we learn to seek meaning in our roots and begin speaking a collective language of humanity. There comes a more spiritual, scientific, and artistic depth in thought which investigates and thrives on new responses, thus enlightening oneself and the community. It’s a fire that ignites our soul. This very fire when nurtured becomes the muse, shaping our work. It’s a noble calling, working alongside a phalanx of artists, who have preceded you, who are your mentors and guides, upon whose work you build , without whom you have no fixed points of reference. It’s a tradition you have implicitly sworn to protect, even while you refashion it and sometimes even shatter it.
