What is Art?

Five years studying Art History in college led me to two conclusions: it's too hard to find a job 'art related' when you only have a degree (not a master or a PhD) and Art is in the eyes of whoever looks at it, is a personal choice, an unique opinion, and nobody should be forced to like what the rest of the world likes.

What if you go to ARCO and you don't like it?, what if you feel that Contemporary Architecture is better than Baroque Architecture?, what if you are in love with the Pre-Raphaelites and don't like Impressionism? Everybody should be free to enjoy art their own way! So don't go to a museum only to see paintings by Velázquez, Van Gogh, Botticelli or Delacroix... You'll discover amazing pieces drifting without direction.

Here you have some of the works I love, not all known, but all wonderful. I'll be posting more 'things I like' in the next few days...
