The Art of Living and Living for Art
The meaning of "The Art of Living and Living for Art" perhaps lies in how I define art. Art is a language and like any other language it is a vehicle of communication i.e. self-expression of ideas and most inner/deep feelings. Language is an important aspect of any culture and cultures tend by nature to limit one's freedom in one way or another. Here is where art comes in - it provides freedom of expression without any limitation or boundaries and provides ample opportunity for imagination and creativity.
My favourite mediums are ink and watercolour: I love lines and black hence ink work; I love water and colours hence watercolour.
A picture tells a thousand words – so I hope you enjoy!
