EclecticQuill's Profile Picture

Artist | Student | Literature
United Kingdom
Philosopher, Literary Artist and Entertainer.

My Artistic Philosophies.

Truth is the essence of all art; to look deeper, beyond physical reality and expose the truth that is woven beneath the surface, its purpose.

It is also the purpose of art to not only tell us the truth of ourselves, but to provide an appreciation of all that we have.

Art has no survival value, but instead is one of those things, like friendship and love, which give value to survival. And so, art should never be turned to hate or despair, but should encourage and show an appreciation for those things which make life worth living.

I'm an antisocial dark wizard, now bring me some coffee before I turn you into an axolotl :laughing:

Thank you for all faves, llamas, comments, critiques, point donations, features and anything else. They are all appreciated, and I'll probably thank you individually, but thought I'd put up a general thank you in the event I should overlook or miss anyone. :)

If I miss a piece of your artwork, that you particularly want more feedback on, comment or note me with a link and I'll get to it as soon as I'm able. :)
