Art shall comfort the disturbed and disturb the comfortable, Cesar Cruz once said. Are we comfortable? Are we disturbed? Or are we both? Artists have a language of their own. They speak to us through different colors, shapes and mediums; we may not even know it at times. But their art will always mean something deep. They may not always tell us what their art means, but just like they always say, explanation kills art. Nowadays, people demand beauty without considering its costs. They ask for colors like the world is not filled with it, they demand shapes and sizes like it’s always their decision to change things. People always think creating art is too easy to be bought with money. But what people don’t know is how much it costs to make one. Art shall never be made for free for it costs more than materials, time and creativity. It is not as easy as capturing a photo through a camera. It takes creativity, passion, materials, and time to make one.

Art shall be free for three main reasons. One, everyone is creative. Everyone can literally make art if they felt like it. It just takes time, determination and right materials for some. They don’t need no passion, those are just for the real artists, in accordance to Arnold Carnegie. Anyone can make art if they initiate on doing so. Art can be made by anyone with anything, anytime and anywhere. Second, we enjoy too much living in a “money-based” society. That won’t change anytime soon. Most artists take advantage on the titles they have earned when it comes to selling their artworks or letting other people use their works. They gain entitlement through winning competitions. As a result, they price their masterpieces higher because they become more popular. Third, anyone is talented. It’s just that, not everyone can showcase them. There people out there who are too shy to show the real world what they can do. They just need a little more help and motivation to come out. Artists are also humans; the only difference is, they breathe art like it’s part of their systems. People like them use art for a living. Yes, one may say we live in a “money-based” society, but how do we live in this society if we don’t make one we were made to do? What are we supposed to do? Art is also a contribution. We live in a world based on our talents and determination. Life will always test us how much of the world we need and how much of the world we can give. Us people, we always adverse what we do not understand. Have you ever made art without time, creativity, and the materials needed?

Art costs more than enough. We should pay for what we have the courage to demand for ownership. When we go to work, we always expect to get paid. Well, so should artists. They create commodities for the world. They deserve freedom of expression and recognitions as appreciations. You don't necessarily need these things, but you want them. And if you want them, you have to pay for them. Art is freedom. But art shall not be made for free.
