The Art of Soul

As a creator, my view is that art should function as a vehicle for driving
dialogue and awareness concerning issues related to social and cultural
relevance. In addition, the use of visual expression should promote
civility among people and environmental preservation. Moreover, visual
representations are not just limited to going beyond an aesthetic appeal
but finding common grounds based on diverse, social and cultural
differences. This common ground empowers people and communities to
not only have pride through creativity but stimulate growth in thinking
through fostering tolerance, respect, and understanding universally.
