Let’s Inspire Your Aesthetic

Art, literature, beauty, and design bleeds through time and place. It’s a great indicator of what culture was like at any given time. Today, we can understand history and why people acted a certain way thanks to art and all its various aspects. And it’s important we leave a good mark for the future art critics to look back into our culture and analyze what we are today.

The authors and readers of Bleeding Through bleed aesthetics and inspire creativity. Whether it’s the latest news about museums or a thought-provoking think piece that changes the way you think about arts and culture, you’ll find it here.

We bleed culture because it is what we are. Now, let’s write about it.

Melanie Daniels

Graduated with a degree in fine arts and is currently pursuing an MA in Art History. Most of her papers involve comparing art in the past and art in the present and how both represent a part of culture at any given point.

When she’s not studying or writing the outline for her next paper, Melanie tries her hand at fashion designing, combining the embroidery of the 16th century with the modern styles of the present.
