Look, It’s totally okay if you don’t think so.
But let me tell you why I do think it is…
Art has a unique way of move people like nothing else — to inspire us, making us ask new questions and initiate curiosity, excitement, and outrage. Art has the power to make us stop and think, if only just for a second or two.
Just like you probably did now, watching this artwork named ”Sea The Future” I created to raise awareness about plastic pollution. Hate it or love it, it made you stop and think about what it represents.
Besides just thinking, art has the power to strengthen the will and push people to act. Because artists do not think like politicians or academics people. Artists think from their heart – big, revolutionary, and visionary ideas.
And equally as important… art has the ability to touch people no matter their native language. Barriers are dissolved. This is why artists are able to move people to action, and raise awareness all around the world with the same artwork.
I truly believe art is very important in the society because it is an essential ingredient to empowering people to act. Led by their hearts.
So, why is art so important?
Perhaps the simplest answer to this question is that art touches us emotionally.
And this is exactly why I started ”Art for Causes”.
To help you find the best art and artists that truly makes you feel!
And to use art to make a real positive change.
