Art and culture have always been essential components of society, which has left behind an extensive legacy of artistic and cultural monuments for us to appreciate today. Art has always been an integral component of human life; people use art to express their emotions and experiences as well as communicate ideas in ways others can comprehend; forms of art include music, painting sculpture and writing among many other mediums.
Art is an aesthetic form of expression which serves to represent the values and traditions of different cultures through physical form. Art can serve to bridge cultural divides by finding common ground among them through artistic representations. Culture reflects the essential nature of its people and civilization as a whole, helping people connect in unique ways with one another. Van Gogh’s ‘The Starry Night’ and Klimt’s ‘The Kiss’ paintings, along with dance forms like Rabindra Sangeet and Kashmiri Wazwaan dance forms are two iconic examples of work of art that are recognized worldwide and can serve to convey values, beliefs, traditions and lifestyles associated with them.
Art can be an extremely complex subject to comprehend, due to all its diverse elements that comprise its definition. Art encompasses everything from drawing and painting, body adornment, carving and music theatre performance through to poetry readings and musical theater pieces. While specific forms may differ depending on culture and background, all forms have an impactful result and play an essential part in human development by helping individuals gain new ways of viewing things and ways of thinking.
Both art and culture can have an immense influence on our lives; they shape both behavior and interactions between individuals as well as how society functions overall. Art can influence both opinions and values we hold dear as well as creating positive change within society itself; yet many dismiss its importance and view it as irrelevant material for school curriculums; this would be wrong as art has an immense effect on life itself as well as having an effect on global affairs today.
Art isn’t just something we see every day; it plays an essential role in building connections between people and helping them to find themselves within this world. Art also provides purpose and meaning in life, so we should treat art seriously if it means connecting with other people or finding our identity here on Earth. Without music, art, and literature our world would be far less enjoyable!
