Life is a dull ache without art. We have seen overwhelming evidence, especially during the pandemic. The only things keeping us sane were movies, series, music, cooking, painting, dancing, yoga, and more. These are all various art forms. And we need them, if not desperately. While utilizing art, let us make sure to support local and emerging artists.
We have thoughtfully curated a list of five emerging artists of the year who beautifully capture the flow of expression. They are all from different disciplines of art and have so much to offer.
Let us go ahead and see who is number one on our list.
