Un manifiesto sobre el arte en forma de novela gráfica
Why do people dedicate their lives to art? Why do we seek it out? Why does it make us feel things? Why does the world need it? Eleanor Davis seeks to answer these questions in her new Fantagraphics graphic novel,Why Art?, which starts as a tongue-in-cheek guidebook and morphs into something much more poignant and affirming. The scope dramatically expands on narrative, visual, and philosophical levels, and by the final page, Davis has put the fate of all humankind in the hands of artists.
Why art? Because it shows us how to be brave. It shows us how to save ourselves. She uses the end of the world to get this across, but the message resonates on a personal level. Throughout the book, Davis is exploring how art creates a bridge between the creator and the observer’s experiences, and that connection can be life-changing.
