Art is your definition

Fountain, 1917.

When Marcel Duchamp submitted Fountain to the 1917 Society of Independent Artists, it shocked the world. How can a toilet be art?

It turns out anything could be art.

Art is anything we do that brings emotional labor to the table to make a connection.

Fountain didn’t require the same technical skill as putting paint on a canvas but having the guts to submit it was extraordinary (assuming it was Duchamp’s work, to begin with).

Andy Warhol followed the same line. So did Jackson Pollock. And so does Shepard Fairey and Banksy today.

The line of art is where we draw it. What is stopping you from creating art every day?
