Stumbling into Art

Stumbling into Art

First of all I would like to introduce myself, my name is Monica and I am an art student.

I hope you enjoy my blog, I along other artists will be publishing about the environment, paintings, artists, prints, photographs, sculptures, artistic movements, literature, film, etc. 

My goal is to share my knowledge and inspire others! If there's something you'd like us to talk about, just tell me!

Today I would love to write about the IMPORTANCE OF ART.

I guess we need to define, what is art ?

Art comes in many forms: music, painting, dance, sculptures, ceramics, literature, architecture, cinema. Art manifests itself through human creative abilities. Art is appreciated mainly for its beauty and emotional power.

I believe that art can make a difference, just as artists from past eras and even artists today believe that art can change the world. Maybe you're wondering, can art really make a difference? Can the world change? I think the answer is yes. At least it changed mine.

How many of you have seen a painting / sculpture / building / print / film and have been moved by it? something inside you just clicks, suddenly you feel something. It can be positive or negative, that does not matter, what matters is that it made you feel. And that is the goal of art: to make you feel, to make you react, to reflect your points of view, to feel understood, loved and the list of what can make you feel is infinite because art is always evolving and so are you. Therefore, you can see a painting today and feel sad, a few years later, seeing the same painting can make you feel otherwise. Who knows!

The best thing about art is that it is subjective. A style that you love another person could hate it, and what you feel is probably not the same as me. Why? Because we are all different, we all go through different life experiences. But the only thing we all have in common is that we can identify ourselves through art.

Art is magical, sometimes it makes you come back to life, sometimes it makes you forget everything and becomes your escape from reality.
