Is Simplicity better than Complexity?

Which is better in Art? Simplicity or complexity?

It seems lately simplicity is more popular.

It took me a long, long time to find the answer.

But I did, and today I will share my answer with you.

I found out right as I was leaving art school.

I was confused because every teacher I asked had a different opinion.

After a while, however, I realized that was part of the answer.

I love answers that don’t require a lot of groundwork.

Following what you love is surprisingly easy.

There rarely are any lines, big expenses, and if that wasn’t enough, it is available right now.

So go ahead and choose what you love.

And then share it with the world.

Which do you prefer? Simplicity or Complexity?

Did Covid change your answer?

Let us know in the comments.

Have a sweet day.
