Why Art

Author: Eleanor Davis
Publisher: Fantagraphics Books
ISBN: 9781683960829
Release Date: 2018-02-14
Genre: Art

This is a treatise on what makes art art, told in graphic novel form. What is “Art”? It’s widely accepted that art serves an important function in society. But the concept falls under such an absurdly large umbrella and can manifest in so many different ways. Art can be self indulgent, goofy, serious, altruistic, evil, or expressive, or any number of other things. But how can it truly make lasting, positive change? In Why Art?, acclaimed graphic novelist Eleanor Davis (How To Be Happy) unpacks some of these concepts in ways both critical and positive, in an attempt to illuminate the highest possible potential an artwork might hope to achieve. A work of art unto itself, Davis leavens her exploration with a sense of humor and a thirst for challenging preconceptions of art worth of Magritte, instantly drawing the reader in as a willing accomplice in her quest.

Xiaobais paintings incorporate traditional themes with a modern twist, and the book is split into cohesive sections: classic style paintings, dark arts paintings, fantasy paintings, and paintings in a modern style. Xiaobai is a famous Chinese manga illustrator and a key member of the Beijing Assassin Tattoo Organization; one of her mangas recently won the Gold Medal at the 2011 International Manga Competition in Japan.
