“Nobel Prize winning author and French name owner, Andre Gide gave his view on art in Poetique, stating that,

‘Art begins with resistance — at the point where resistance is overcome. No human masterpiece has ever been created without great labour’.

If you subscribe to this interpretation of art, fighting is art at its purest.

Unlike the majority of artistic pursuits, fighting is one in which the artists are in active competition.

One man will walk away having failed.

The stakes are very well understood by both men and there is a good chance that both the victorious and defeated party will get hurt in the process.

…………the very real stakes of an actual fight remind us of that ‘truth’ that is always talked about in relation to art.

There is nothing more honest and brutal than a fight and often the hero ends up bloodied and broken.”
