Well for an artwork to change a sense of who I am it'll have to be something that opens my soul. And if not then it'll only show me the creativity of the artist or photographer, painter, etc.  but it won't change me.

I reckon art can, because the type of art you like or favour over others can depict who you are, but mostly if you are able to look at a painting, or photograph, and say and feel it. By that I mean be able to look at it and say what you think it depicts in your eyes, and tell the overall 'mood' of the painting. . (This is not the case for some people)
Sorry if it got a little deep there =D

Absolutely! Especially if you count genetically engineered viruses that can turn people into a zombie or swan as art!

I do not think it is art that changes us into the people we become.

It is culture. ^^

Isn't art a part of said culture?

Why are there these pointless polls? You can be a ridicolously great artist, but if you are a creepy moron, you stay a creepy moron.

to anybody in a trouble I can say that THERE IS NO WAY that you can't change your life or maybe there is no need to change it at all.
There must be something that you're missing or finally doesn't depend of you.

It surely must be one of these to fix.

-you're not patient enough to wait for your art or other actions to get ripe.
-there are some people or other circumstances of the surrounding environment that slow down your development.
-you could get wrong impressions from visual concepts that are presented in a wrong way or do not match your likes disturbing your senses.
-you are doing something wrong.
-you didn't take in attention something important yet or you have no knowledge how to do something in a quality way.
-you aren't putting enough effort or sloth.

Art, at it's bare meaning, is a expression of ones emotions, feelings, and viewpoint. It is these that we see depicted through art, and how we depict them is how they effect us. They might string together a sad tail, making us lament others pain, and be thankful for what we have. It also might share a story of love, giving us hope for others, or maybe jealous of them. Art can change your view of your self, for better or for worse, as when we look and ponder what inspired the piece, we also think about ourselves and what we feel. Art is see the world through another's eyes.
