If indeed needed an explanation, a soulmate  is someone you can't imagine being without, a person you believe is worth sticking with and fighting for. It is the one who is aligned with the other’s soul and is sent to challenge, awaken and stir different parts of you in order for your soul to transcend to a higher level of consciousness and awareness. Same way art does so for artist art is not less than a Soulmate. He speaks his heart out to her.  Art calls for complete mastery of techniques, developed by reflection within the soul. Artists have been practicing various forms of art for years. Their works are very much connected with their thought, emotions and lives.
