What is Art?

I found this stenciled/wheatpaste piece in the Meat Packing District in Manhattan. It was close in proximity to Pastis--one AMAZING French restaurant. My Boss and co-workers of TAF took me their for my goodbye lunch, quite delicious, indeedy.
Getting back to it, there is an immense amount of controversy of whether or not works that include stencils are considered Art. In my point of view, it is.
I believe that Art is a language; a medium in which you can express what you're feeling. I believe there are more skillful ways of making art. Maybe that is what this person meant--stencils are more easy than just free handing.
Pish Posh, I really don't know...but this was something I thought was worthy of pondering about.
