Art and Artist Perception

A good artist has an uncanny perception power, everyone who knows something about life knows this! Yet, to benefit from artist perception, you can only approach them via their art. What most people don't know is that even when people have genuine wisdom, they do not necessarily express that wisdom properly in ``language.'' So do not listen to artist, connect with their art works.
