The Mona Lisa has her own mailbox in the Louvre because of all the love letters she receives. Perspective is the way we see things, so it's important to use it correctly. Stick no Bills, Inspire with Art.
Art used to be an Olympic event. The Olympics wasn’t always about abs and doping scandals. The founder of the modern Games, the Baron Pierre de Coubertin, was enamoured with the idea of the true Olympian being a talented artist and sportsperson. Thanks to him, between 1912 and 1948 medals were given out for sporting-inspired masterpieces of architecture, music, painting, sculpture and literature.
We turn to art for inspiration because it allows us to travel somewhere else, to jolt our perspective into something we may have not seen before, for the benefit of comparing that experience to something else. It's not only paintings or sculpted statues which enable us to be transported to a different time or place.
