This post is dedicated to the idea that creativity can flow out of any of us. Everywhere you look these days, you see people turning something quite ordinary into something unbelievably extraordinary. Like Yuken Teruya who delicately carves commercial paper bags and transforms them into magnificent miniature trees or Maurizio Savini who turns Hubba Bubba into high art, these artists are the ones who remind us that the best kind of art isn't the most complicated, it's the kind that leaves us with an experience.
