Art is Stamp by ultravioletbat Art is Stamp by ultravioletbat
EDIT: For those of you who do not have a paid subscription on DA, I have made the stamp into a plz!


Because without -all- of you, the stamp's message would fall on deaf ears.

Also, I've modified that stamp a little, taking away its drop-shadow and changing the typography so hopefully, though its just words is a little more appealing to look at now.


Never thought I'd ever make one of these, but lately been wanting to make several little stamps.

Anyone is welcome to use it. You don't have to but it would be nice to hear from you if you do wind up using it. :)

It is a simple one, no fancy images just a simple statement of which I think some people need reminding :3

Art is subjective, just because you don't like something, doesn't mean it is not art. Reversely, if you like it it does not mean that it is. What defines art for one person is completely different for the next.

I could speak on this subject in far more depth, but I don't think I need to. It's been said before me and I am sure it will be a topic of some debate long into the future, as long as people have opinions. :3

The art we produce is no different from our other actions as a mean of self-expression. Thus, if we can say "I do good" while actually doing wrong, we can also give a wrong message through our art, and thus there's, by all likelihood, always someone out there better able to analyse and tell what our artwork actually means, represents and tells about us as the artist. Whoever that someone is or however we could tell that (they're right) is a whole another topic. The point is, that artists are still just human beings, so they can't decide what is the right way to interpret anything, not even their own actions. No, they can only tell what they're supposed to mean, but if they've failed to express just that, then they've failed and that's that!

Oh wait, you're talking about the definition of art and not its meaning? Well, in that case you're absolutely right! I just wanted to make sure, that the stated point is understood here.

I'd tell this to the person who bullied me few months ago.

So ignorant.

I have to agree,  there are certain cases in which that's happened to me.   Like I do lists of my favorite things but yet some people do not think that they belong in my gallery and rather should just be a personal thing,  which I personally disagree with because well...i'm stating my opinions on things I like and don't like and we are all entitled to opinions in one form or anything,   I respect this person/user and all but sometimes there are just certain times where I disagree with them.   Everyone likes and dislikes different things.
