When I was younger, I used to sigh whenever my parents told my brother and I that we were going to a museum. They were filled with things I didn’t really understand and didn’t want to understand. A family trip at a museum meant spending a couple of hours being bored and wanting to go to a playground instead.

Only when I grew older and developed a keen interest for art, both making it myself and studying the art of others, I found myself being drawn to museums more and more.

Lucky for me, Vienna houses a great deal of art and also birthed some pretty famous artists like Egon Schiele, Oskar Kokoschka, Friedensreich Hundertwasser and Gustav Klimt.

“Art cannot be modern. Art is primordially eternal.”

-Egon Schiele

Art is an expressive outlet for me, whether it be art as in writing, painting, drawing, collaging, photography, videography,… Art lets me escape reality. Art is thereputic to me. Art inspires me. Art is everywhere. What is art to you?
