WHAT IS ART?
Wikipedia defines art as "a diverse range of human activities and artifacts, and may be used to cover all or any of the arts, including music, literature and other forms. It is most often used to refer specifically to the visual arts, including mediums such as painting, sculpture and printmaking.
Dictionary.com lists many definitions but the one that sticks out is "the quality, production, expression or realm, according to aesthetic principles, of what is beautiful, appealing, or of more than ordinary significance.
What do I define "art" as?
Art is any form of expression that represents creative freedoms. Art is present in the everyday life; it stretches across racial, gender, political, geographical, socio-economic and religious boundaries. Although there are institutional categorizations of art in reality it is all one in the same.
This blogspot was created to show the conventional and unconventional; the ordinary and the elite; Baroque and Graffiti; fashion and photography; the precision and the mindless doodling.
This blogspot is dedicated to those who love, create and admire any form of creative effort. Once again I cannot define art but this site will provide creative processes and you can determine for yourself.
