because visual art is alot like music (which sounds awfully obvious). in songs you hear lyrics and music that appeal to you. they sound really good or catchy or just really beautiful. its the same thing with images and buildings and sculptures, stuff like that.
in music you hear things that you can connect with or you recognise and that appeals to you - like when i see stencils my sister and her friends have made or see a photography in the news of something that really interests me.
with music you can make your own interpretation of what a song means based on your beliefs and experiences and feelings and you can do the same thing with art, visual analysis and all that. you see what you want to, make your own understanding. thats my favourite part. that no matter what an artwork was intended to mean it can be seen and understood in so many different ways.
but then you can research and know a bit more of what the artist intended when they made the art. and it sounds boring, researching and shit, but when you can understand the person's history and how they lived and then you can see what they see in the art it feels awesome.
its like when you find out what seventy times seven is about but ten times more exciting.
so i actually like it.
