My definition of art contains three elements:
- Art is made by a human being.
- Art is created to have an impact, to change someone else.
- Art is a gift. You can sell the souvenir, the canvas, the recording… but the idea itself is free, and the generosity is a critical part of making art.
By my definition, most art has nothing to do with oil paint or marble. Art is what we are doing when we do our best work.
Are you changing someone else’s life, are touching your customers’ soul for the better because if you can touch your customer’s soul for the better you are an artist.
Art is no longer about drawing only, it is about exposing your skill to your customers in a manner that they admire and connect with it.
A social entrepreneur, a blogger, a doctor, a photographer are equally artists.
Everybody is born an artist. What is your art?
