Art is life. And the perspective that we have on the life. You can not create art in the vacuum (well, you can, but then it will be empty and meaningless). That's why I have to study, I have to learn all the time new things, I have to be exposed to the world and new ideas. That keeps me moving and helps developing as an artist.
