Something that is created to be beautiful and unique whether it be writing/paintings/music etc.
Something that is deemed to capture a particular thought, feeling etc (that many can relate to) in an especially creative or unique way.
I way to describe yourself, while you believe that it the best way to let others touch your feelings.
In my opinion art is a channel, through which you express your feelings and emotions, your selv.
A work of art is consequenty a represantion of its creator's feelings, emotions.
I would argue that - to be a true artist - a person must be capable of externalising himself/herself. By this I mean - be capable of taking an idea, a thought filtered through mixed emotions, from inside their head and give it coherence: a concrete reality in the real world.
To achieve this they need to be brutally honest about who and what they are on the inside.
So art is really a manic process that switches between soul searching introversion followed by a nakedly honest exposition of whatever the artist has managed to dredge up from those deep dark corners of the mind that most us prefer not to visit.
