Art can be anything that creates some ind of reaction in people. And while “a picture is worth a thousand words”, sometimes it only takes a few words to create a even more powerful message. It is called typography, and have been getting a lot of momentum as of late. (Think about your girlfriends “Live, Laugh, Love” picture frame).
