Can anyone truly explain the "why" of the artistic urge? The desire to create? I don’t know why I have this need, I just know that I do. I imagine it’s that way for all artists, with or without an audience.
Critics will say, "What’s the use? Where is the value in art?" There are as many answers for those questions as there are artists. Let me give you an example where art is used to enrich and, in a way, save lives.
