    Default What does Art mean to you?

    We all have a different idea of what we see as art, and what we see as not.

    What is your opinion of it?

    There is a lot of so-called art which is just stupid. To me, art requires inspiration and creativity, with intricate detail and attention to relationships of color and line. People who splatter paint on a canvas randomly should not have it considered as art.

    I find that art is something created by the artist to show their creativity, their emotions and to show and inspire others to feel the way they do about their art.

    I would have to agree with Digital Dragon. Splattered paint on a canvas shouldn't be considered art.

    I love you.
    I went to an art museum in New York, one of the 'paintings' was literally a blank canvas, another, solid blue.

    But wouldn't splattered paint, if going by your definition, be considered an artist showing their creativity, emotions, and inspiration?

    Modern art isn't the most user-friendly stuff. Unless you have a reasonable understanding of 20th century art history, nothing you see in a gallery is going to make sense. The history of art is basically a long series of reactions to other art movements, so unless you know what you're seeing is a reaction to, it won't make much sense.

    Looking at contemporary art, not understanding it's context, and going "This isn't art! It's just squiggles on a canvas!" is like picking up Tolstoy, reading it in original Russian, not understanding a syllable, and exclaiming "This isn't literature! It's just random scribblings! It doesn't make any sense at all! A chimpanzee could scrawl these obscure letters!"

    Good point good point. It would be but how would it look to another person? I have a pretty wild imagination and will see random shapes and probably faces in it but how would other people view the painting? Some people have no imagination and just see splatters or colors. They don't really believe anything to be there.

    Well, to -me-, art is an expression of deep emotions.

    The way I perceive other people's art depends. I usually don't like most of what I see, but sometimes it can be touching, sometimes it can be epic, sometimes it can be hilarious, sometime it's cool -- it can be really anything the artist wants it to be. But most of the time, it's only worth being burnt, and almost all the time, there's at least something to criticize.

    Art is not simply being able to draw something. It's your ability to express deep emotions into the drawing, to make that character FEEL like you do, to say the least. (Of course, not to mention the quality.) Same thing goes with music. Simply being able to play an instrument does not make one an artist, even if one can actually play a good note without mistakes. Real artists can express their emotions through the music, and make you feel it, and LIVE it. That's what art is about IMHO. And though I only mentioned drawing and playing instruments, the same goes with writing stories, poetry, and really any given form of art.

    Most of the so-called art forms are total junk. For example, it's a joke that (c)rap and raggae are even considered music. Though one could argue that when it comes to rap, the lyrics and the 'rapping' is the art, not the music. But still, I've never really liked it, except for that it can be sometimes hilarious. I don't think that rap can be used to express any serious emotions (though it might be useful for other things). And Digital Dragon mentioned a good example regarding drawing (squatting paint on a sheet and calling it "art", which is in reality no more than some random, vomit-like, completely meaningless crap).

    Art is subjective, objective, relative and personal. Diverse art forms help us build up the verbal and nonverbal abilities necessary for lifelong knowledge. The intellectual demands of the arts facilitate us to develop problem-solving abilities and such powerful thinking skills as analyzing and evaluating. Art does not have to be on a canvas. Art is everything and anything that takes creativity and imagination.

    Those people are very skillful. The amount of time they put on those pieces is quite surprising. (:

    I still think there should be a higher criteria of what is considered art and what is considered junk. I always thought of art as bringing order to randomness, which is not the case with some art, which seeks to express randomness.

    Art to me is self expression.
    Not all self expression should be displayed for the world to see.
    I am too connected to you
    To slip away, fade away.
    Days away I still feel you
    Touching me, changing me,


    Considerately killing me.

    Typical artist "blame the audience for not appreciating your genius" rhetoric is typical.

    Tolstoy didn't want non-Russian speakers to have a hard time appreciating his work, and he probably wouldn't have a problem with people reading translated versions instead of not reading it at all. An artist has somewhat of a duty to have their work connect with the audience, and otherwise they shouldn't look down upon people for not understanding (rather they should come to expect it).



    To the people who say art is an expression, I pose a question. What does fan service say about a mangaka?

    Of what? Art isn't supposed to be silly "entertainment" like watching some trite B-action film. If you haven't done the proper research into what the heck you're viewing, then that's your problem, and it's not the artist's job to hold your hand and recount the last 40 years of art history so you can understand why this piece is important because you can't be bothered to do it.

    You're completely missing the point of my analogy. What I'm saying is that unless you understand a particular artist or piece of modern art's place in the bigger picture, you won't be able to appreciate it.

    But some (especially modern) artists are simply trying to be as obscure as possible without any meaningful references.

    Of course, there are those too, and without a decent understanding of the art scene, it's almost impossible to tell what's what. But artists like that exist in basically all forms of culture (especially literature and poetry), as a staggering amount of people think "I don't understand this, so it must be very deep and profound..."

    To me art means telling a story. A story of all different kinds of emotions.I dont believe that a person can just make a piece of art and call it art without having a valid reason for doing so. If I wanted to draw a pretty flower its 'cuz it represents something in my life.

    I agree with what most people said here; art is expressing ones creativity and inspiration.
    I especially love art I can understand. Not some ink, messy splotches splattered on a canvas. There isnt any deep meaning in that to me. :/

    Art? Never understood it pretty well, but in my opinion it is just about putting something from your mind into a piece of paper. A little of your perspective about the world in a creation.

    When you say art, do you mean all art forms or just visual arts? Because unlike me, these people seem to think it's the latter.

    Art can be anything, but to me its simply "you on paper/screen". Not necessarily limited to either of those, because art can be spoken, or expressed in other ways. I say as long as you put effort into a creation that can be enjoyed, or expressed by yourself or others, that's art. Whether people like it or not doesn't matter, just the effort you put into making it.

    Instead of instrumental music(in which you have to write down the notes), tell me an other thing that isn't visual, and why would your answer change just because it is made in a different way. twat.

    If you don't mind, please read this and/or try to reiterate, because it's either that you don't know what falls under visual arts, or that you failed to explain yourself properly.

    I'm asking, because if OP means strictly visual arts, I'm not a fan of those.
