    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.
