One of the hallmarks of brilliant artists or creative persons is the ability to keep people talking about their works long after their death. From Da Vinci’s ‘Mona Lisa’, which is rumoured to have been painted in a way that makes her eyes change every time you look at it, to FedEx logo, which has a hidden arrow symbolising the company’s speedy delivery culture, creative people have always created pieces with hidden meanings.
On Creative Gist today, different creatives share when and why they create hidden meanings in their works.

Creatives like Naomi and Payper create hidden meanings in their works to both conceal and reveal life-altering experiences without being completely vulnerable. As someone with a good eye for remarkable pieces, do you appreciate creative works with hidden meanings more than ones with obvious messages?
As a creative, have you mastered the art of hiding your deeper feelings in plain sight? Does your audience often give different interpretations of your work? How has this enhanced your credibility and popularity? Tell us about it in the comments!
