“Throughout history of mankind, art forms were always present in the testimonies unravelled. Art seems to be an urge in mankind. We, humans, create with what is at hands. But we are also most importantly the mirror of our time. Art has a purpose in our society and has an impact on individuals. It raises us all above the functionality that we face everyday.”
