Artists have a gift in representing the beauty of the world. Should this necessarily become a contribution to saving the environment?

I am aware that there are many different people in the world and each has his or her own beliefs, values and morals to many count. It all boils down to the artist and his or her own morals and values.

 As with most polls like this one, everything depends on the artist's beliefs, talents, or feelings. For example, I can't draw nature to save my life, and rarely step outside. So.Sweating a little...

An artist has to draw what they know.  Just like writers have to write about what they know.  While it would be great to see more artists create images to help contribute to protecting the enviroment, we cannot expect everyone to do it.

Let's stop saving the environment, and let's save ourselves instead! This planet has been destroyed many times, and has no feelings. We humans on the other hand are really in for it if we don't start being more preservative.

The way I see it, it can work in either direction. Artists can both show the beauty and horror of the world. So as well as using it to save the environment you could also use it to promote using oil or the likes. I mean, we can paint lovely sunny trees on an autumn day (or write about etc. depending on the form of art) but we could just as easily paint a war scene. So I feel we have to both or it's a narrow perspective. And that art is a two-faced coin.

not necessarily... i mean if you want to create art like that then great! but it dosent mean that that is the only way the art should be viewed. you can create something completely beautiful with multiple meanings and if the mass of people only see it as for the environment they might be missing the other things that you want to show them.

No, it should not be necessarily.
If they want to, yes of course. But if they don't no. Necessarily should only be if are getting paid for it, but that goes without saying.
its still a hobby for most, to escape from reality and the world outside and being an artist should be enjoyed in the first place.
