In our 1-year anniversary show, we wanted to look at the things that have influenced our 103 participating artists and their art.
Probably the most common question artists get asked is: “What inspired you to make this artwork?”.
Throughout history artists have been inspired by their experiences, the environment around them, their culture, politics, and imagination. As the concept of art and creating art developed over time, artists began to be inspired by other artists and their art styles. Each artist has their own individual perspective, style, and creative vision resulting in art that is deeply personal to them. So we can conclude that an artist’s influence is as subjective as art itself.
