STATEMENT OF ART:
Art lacks a satisfactory definition. It can make turn ugly to beautiful, It can change ordinary to unordinary.
In my personal view, design is belong to art. They are all about to survey people's a viewpoint and emotion and message by a creative way. However, I think art express stronger feelings from a artist and get stronger motional comment from audience, while design is more to communicate a message and motive viewers.
