Are memes art?
hm… are they?
To answer this question we must ask ourselves what is art? Oxford languages defines art as “the expression or application of human creative skill and imagination, typically in a visual form such as painting or sculpture, producing works to be appreciated primarily for their beauty or emotional power.” Well does that clear things up? Now I know what you’re thinking…
Probably thinking and feeling a lot like this right? ^
You’re probably thinking memes aren’t art, BUT I challenge you to expand your mind. Though maybe not art in the traditional form, memes are used to convey and express thoughts and emotions, much like art. Could memes become a new type of modern art in our world’s digital age?

Ha! you do make a compelling argument by including your definition of a meme. With a rise in digital art and more availability being made to express yourself online, it does raise the thought that memes may be art after all.
