"Going back in time to prehistoric times there were certain things that were important: Surviving. Feeding yourself. And there was also art. Prehistoric artists were trying to figure out the world that they lived in.Take a painting of a bison on a cave with some spears in it - they were hoping they could control their food source and survival. Art was a really important element for all human beings and I believe that is still the case.Art allows you to give meaning to your life and to try and understand the world in some way. It is a way of engaging and understanding the world."
