The Daily Post Prompt: April 30
Do you need to agree with an artist’s lifestyle or politics to appreciate their art? To spend money on it?
For me art is an emotion and if the artist is of Faith and creates with pure, positive intentions in mind, than that really adds value to the work.Knowing the beautiful, quirky, unique piece was created by a nifty person just makes the whole package. As far as politics goes it’s an artists oath to portray the truth without malice. So the only people who would disagree with a political truthful message has a character supported on lies and ignorance. And artists who seek out to hurt someone to get their point across is no better than the problem.
I don’t understand how anyone would want art or support it (sometimes spending a fortune) on art that is just plain vulgar and stupid. That is not art that’s what a child does when he’s throwing a tantrum just to get noticed.
