Art

Art is a diverse range of human activities in creating visual, auditory or performing artifacts (artworks), expressing the author’s thoughts, emotions, intuitions, and desires; but it is even more personal than that: it is about sharing the way we experience the world, which for many is an extension of the personality. It is the communication of intimate concepts that cannot be faithfully portrayed by words alone.
