When someone creates something new it is avant- garde and it cannot be re-done ever again. A person who is Avant Garde is a person who pushes the/their boundaries. Who exceeds orginality.Avant Garde also means breaking the barriers of something that is normal or common. When an individual is avant-garde, they are elite in all that they do, and are innovative. They are the kind of people that are known to put themselves in the face of danger in order to have change.They can be described as daring people who are willing to drive toward any goal regardless of obstacles or fear of criticism.
