Advances in Art - ... The process of applying makeup is even considered an art if you are broad minded. The appliers are called makeup ‘”artists’’. Not everyone can apply makeup flawlessly (Fields). Therefore, a makeup artist stands out from the crowd. They express themselves with their brushes, instead of a violin. This is how far the recognition of individual art has come. This is what fascinates me so much about the whole idea of art. It gives everyone an individual way to express their thoughts. It gives us a chance to show the world how we really feel, but in a unique way....   [tags: Art ]

Public Art - Public Art “Any drawn line that speaks about identity, dignity, and unity is art,” (Chaz Bojorquey) is a statement that I agree with.

I believe that as long as what has been created is meaningful to either the creator or even to somebody that is viewing it, it should be considered art. Art in the public is a very controversial subject that brings up the important question of, “Should public art be considered as real art,” personally I think that it should be....   [tags: Art] 852 words

Art and Aesthetics - Art and Aesthetics Art is usually referred to as the visual arts, where a piece of work is judged through the aesthetics in which it creates. However, art refers to all human endeavors, including the product of oneÂ’s creative impulse. In other words, art does not have to be innovative to be good. I believe art is the communication of an idea, be it visual, musical, communicative or other.

Fine Art, Fashion and Design - ... I believe that fashion is built upon art and culture of an entire era, simply by these prime examples of designers work. The two designers that I will be using for my discussion, on whether their work relates to fine art will be Coco Chanel and John Galliano. Firstly Coco Chanel was a pioneering French fashion designer, born in 1883 where fashion was a symbol of social status. Rich men would lavish their wives in fine craftsmanship, which expressed how wealthy they were. Being in the Edwardian period, Fashion was characterized by huge mutton sleeves that ballooned above the elbow and tiny, clinched waistlines accentuated by sashes of ribbons....   [tags: Art]

Futurism: An Extinct Art Movement - ... As World War I went on, behind the scenes, Italian Futurism came to an end. With the hope of modernizing the society and economy, many Italian Futurists instinctively supported the rise of Fascism in Italy, which was still torn between the industrial revolution in the north and the rural, archaic landscape of the south. After years in the making, Marinetti had finally established the Futurist Political Party in early 1918. This party shortly thereafter merged with Mussolini’s Fasci di combattimento regime....   [tags: Art]

His paintings are ominous and kind of depressing. Two of his paintings are: Landscape with Dancing Figures and Apollo Guarding the Herds of Admetus. Landscape with Dancing Figures is a beautiful painting. Although it is colorful and bright, it still has an underlying tension. This painting feels very real. Apollo Guarding the Herds of Admetus has a nice contrast between the dark and light parts; it makes for a nice shadowy effect....   [tags: Art ]

Meaning Mishaps and the Nature of Art - Have you ever been confused about the purpose or meaning behind a certain piece of art. In my opinion, art is viewed many different ways. The artist will create a piece of art with a certain intended meaning, but it will most likely not be viewed in that way. When a spectator views a piece of art, they take into account their past experiences, and since everyone has gone through different things, their interpretations are different, as you can imagine. The nature of art is created when the artist intends one thing, but the spectator sees the art differently; and therefore changes the meaning when they spread their personal opinions....   [tags: art, ] 1294 words

On the moral spectrum, when Thornton uses the word ‘creative,’ she places Obrist on the generally good side of this spectrum.

He reaches vertically toward the eagle, gesturing to the sky, and does not seem to fear the eagle. There are no other figures other than a small dog at the ground. The Olympian statuary also features a Ganymede that is fearless. In this piece, however, there is no eagle, and instead it is Jupiter who is holding Ganymede in his arm....   [tags: Art]
