For many, the Satanic path includes creating artwork. As Satanism is an individualistic practice, art can offer one way to fully realize one's self-expression. Satanic artists can draw on the rich symbolism of Satanism, the occult, pop culture, and many other sources in order to create something new and thought-provoking.
Art can be a meditative process, a way to work through mental illness or other issues and challenges, an act of rebellion, a way to help others think in new directions, a part of an ongoing life practice of Satanism and more. You don't have to be a professional painter, musician, sculptor or writer to make art. Many times it is the process of creation itself which is the most meaningful to the creator.
