Definition: 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.
The beauty of art is that it can be anything you want it to be. Art is one of the few things where there are no limits. Art can be something new every time because humans are creative. In my opinion, memes are definitely art. They are art because it is creative and makes people feel a certain way. I also like memes because it’s almost like clubs that you can fit into. For example, there is a huge selection of SpongeBob memes. These memes connect to people who grew up watching SpongeBob. This can start a conversation on other topics that were going on at the same time.
At the same time, I can understand the point of view of people who think memes are not art. I feel like some people seem them as maybe too simple. Maybe some people see them as just cartoons. Maybe they look effortless. I tried to put myself in those people’s shoes, however, as many people have pointed out in other blogs there is some crazy looking art out there. For example, abstract art. I’m sure when abstract art was starting there were arguments on whether it is art or not, but no one can tell you what you have created isn’t art. My final definition of art is when a person is being creative and sharing their point of view with others.
one of my favorite memes is this one because I get so many tickets often smh! I also like it because many new yorkers can relate.
I love creating memes related to the office as I am a huge fan! Usually, when someone sees them and they are also office fans, we can have a conversation right away which is the beauty of art!
