What is good art?



To me, the purest and most appealing art is one that is honest. It should be honest in it's delivery and in what it wants to be. When a "good" artist tries to externalise an intimate and honest expression onto a canvas, he/she uses all tools and means necessary to achieve just that. The desire to do so should be so strong, that he/she forces himself/herself to grow better in all aspects of his/her artistry in order to create what he/she believes has to be created. The urge should be so intense that the artist simply can't move on until he/she achieves his/her vision.
If this is your process when creating, then it's a pure and honest form of art and therefor more interesting and unique.
