Art art art art art. What is it? We’ve always seen it as the expression or application of human creative skill and imagination, typically in a visual form such as painting or sculpture, producing works to be appreciated primarily for their beauty or emotional power…
That was definitely us and not the Oxford English Dictionary… definitely.
For those who aren’t as super smart as us, art is something that looks or sounds pretty, or makes you think harder than usual… or something. Or loads of tiny nails arranged to look like something cool… Like what David Foster does. Have a look at his work:
An elephant… obviously
Queen Elizabeth Windsor II/ a first class stamp
The Liver Building
Mick Jagger (and Steven Gerrard from a funny angle)
Some band that no-one’s heard of
So he’s quite good at putting nails in boards in such a way that they look like something. You could say…
…he nailed it.
