At Toi, we think art is the best present you can give someone you love.... so, in anticipation of Valentine's Day, we asked Toi's artists about the connection between art and love.
They illustrated their answers, and we love what they did. You will too!
How risky to talk about love without sounding cheesy! Especially when talking about art and love. The most important thing for me is to express a feeling or an idea through my work. When I illustrate, I translate that idea or emotion to a visual language. I allow the image take charge. Form, color, composition, everything has to communicate, to express a feeling.
I’m not sure what is the best present for someone we love. But I’m certain art is one of the best possible presents. What a joy is to choose an artwork, to think of how this would please this person, and how this piece will be in their life forever.
