Is Fantasy an Art Form?

Not IN and OF itself. However, there could be no art without it. An artist, no matter what form of art they are working with, must first visualize, or rather see what they are creating before they can create it. Any of the great sculptors, of stone, wood, clay, or any other material all sculpt the same way. They have to see the object that they are sculpting, then they simply remove everything that doesn’t belong.

The same goes for other types of artists as well. If they are sketching, drawing, or painting a picture, then they must see it first. If they are composing a musical number, then they must hear it first.

Any form of art must first be created in the mind, the artist then simply duplicates it in the physical world so that the rest of us can enjoy it as well.
