What is Art?- This question often pops up our minds when we go through some sort of creative commotion and to satisfy ourselves we usually come up with even more complicated answers.
there are a number of ways you could go defining art but since this is my version so i could tell you that Art plays a large part in making our lives infinitely rich. Imagine, just for a minute, a world without art! imagine the impact that lack of graphics on your favorite products,the lack in the sense of color,design,architecture almost everything.
Art stimulates different parts of our brain to make us laugh or incite us to riot, with a whole spectrum of emotions in between. Art gives us a way to be creative and express ourselves on a larger platform and engages us into some sort of creative activity such as music,dance,poetry,literature,painting etc. You must be wondering What is it that we don't express in our everyday lives which needs to expressed through art? but have you ever wondered art is such a large part of our everyday lives that we may hardly even stop to think about it.Let me explain it this way,Take a look at your Shoes and then think for a moment how someone, somewhere thought of covering their feet, this thought changed in an idea that inspired him to create shoes and this way of executing or expressing a thought is art,look at the chair you're sitting in right now, someone designed it.It is art,the food that you eat, the clothes that you wear, the latest Car parked at your neighbors porch is art, it's in the building you walked by without noticing, it's there on the fence behind the tree in a park nearby, therefore if you know how to look for it it's everywhere and the best way to look about it is by observing the world we live in. This Universe is filled with artworks that is both functional and aesthetically pleasing to your eyes.
So from now on you do not need to find the answer to this question by just gazing inside the Galleries or by looking at Murals or Monuments, art is within and without us, it's what you see around you each day, what you dream, feel, observe, what drives you crazy, what disturbs you and if it disturbs you trust me its "ART".
