Art is 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 as defined by Oxford Dictionary
I believe that memes are an art of expression in the digital medium. I think memes are an art form that many people can tap into without much need for previous experience if any. It gives people who otherwise wouldn’t be able to express themselves in traditional or conventional art form a way to do so.
Memes also evoke real emotions such as happiness or anger in people but even more than that memes connect people through shared experiences. Memes can help a person realize they’re not the only one who feels or thinks a certain way about a particular topic. In that way, memes help to remove the feeling of loneliness. (its a possibility)
Memes may be seen as a purely jokes by some people but even comedy is an art form so why downgrade memes for going the same thing just online. if looking at a memes makes a person laugh and in that one moment, that person wasn’t thinking negatively or worrying about life I say that meme was worth it.
