artist - quotes and descriptions to inspire creative writing
The artist is woven into their culture and language, a living being in a living system, as such their art will always have greatest meaning and healing power within their own community.

You can write into the air; you can speak upon a page. A painting can be a novel and a story can paint the perfect picture. Dance can express such emotion and emotions can stir deep movements within even a chance observer.

We artists speak with words and without; we artists are nature's soul-restoration crew.
Our artists are the kites of thinking, as are philosophers, dreamers... yet in truth they are our natural anchors to all the things that make living so wonderful.

This art it pours out of me, as if my heart wishes to sing all day and all night. It is such a chatterbox, this heart of mine. It dances in the words as if it were performing a ballet, loving each tiny movement. It comes as a river, often gentle, yet with a flow that appears to have a sense of where it is going. It comes to be born rather than moulded, to show itself for what it is. It is a lot of me and a lot of divine inspiration, or that is how I see it when the artist truly loves, when the art is the proof of the loving heart.
The artist is born to lead everyone out of the the ideological prisons, they are all escape artists.
