“In art, man reveals himself and not his objects” – Rabindranath Tagore
That’s exactly what art does to a person, as quoted by Rabindranth Tagore, a pure creative soul who exhibited his talents through literature, performing art and paints. He intended to convey that art is a medium through which one can express emotions and reveal their true self on to the canvas.The art is not about the finesse but the honesty with which the person indulges himself in it. But unfortunately, in today’s world where people are consumed by their work and the race to succeed, one has lost the charm of discovering self through art.
