The power of writing and art is something that is truly amazing to behold. Think of some of the greatest artists of all time, they are not only still heard today, but they helped invent how the world speaks and sees art. For example, take Shakespeare, quite possibly one of the greatest writers and entertainers of all time.
He used what was known as colloquial speech, during which he not only wrote art for people in the common language, but actually invented words that would soon become part of the official language. He saw a way to create not only for entertainment but for the betterment of society.
Great artists today
Today, the stakes are much different, but the idea is still the same. What you get is people innovating the way in which we view culture, but in a much different way. Today, the digital world gives us opportunities to interact in brave new ways, allowing people to gain exposure through innovation and creativity.
The medium with which we use to find new art is different, but the idea is the same. Artists will always be at the forefront of innovation and influencing culture. Whether it is through the invention of new words or whether it is simply a new way of displaying art, artists are the backbone of our culture. It is important that we appreciate art for what it is, a way to connect with one another and help explain the world around us.
