From Sneaker Stencil Kits to Intentionally Ugly Tattoos

 - Sep 28, 2017
Many people have the tendency to define art within small parameters, but the September 2017 art trends show that the innately human practice spans a broad set of media. For whatever reason, people often define art as either painting and sculpting or as anything that they personally consider to be good art. Both such definitions are far too narrow; regardless of one's feelings on a given work, anything created with the intention of serving as a work of art is a work of art.

For instance, Darwin's decorative steampunk skull certainly wouldn't appeal to everyone, but there's no denying that it's the product of craftsmanship, careful thought, and creative expression. Likewise, the Krystal puppets currently on display at the Center for Puppetry Arts in Atlanta might have been part of an ad campaign, but they're no less works of creativity than Picasso paintings.
