The art is a the best and most beautiful manifestation of the humanity. What is the reason of your art? and what do you want reach with it?
I'm new here and I' have notice there are many artist who do different kind of art. So what is the "to be" of your art? Share some of your work too :)
For example right now I'm young, I'm 20 years, in first place I want to learn many thing about the international art community. My paintings talk about the most beautiful feelings wthat I found, inpired in the dreams, I represent the essence of the human consciousness in my way. I search the idealism for try to show the most precious feelings when someone see my work, I want that the people can remember beautiful moments of their life. Also I want support the colored pencil technique.
Because of the digital art that I create - I'm always reaching for a new, almost exotic feel. Diaphanous layers that create the feeling of depth and mystery to the bright colorful, almost hard edged subject of each work.
I want my photos to bring an emotion to others; my work tends towards serenity, peacefulness, sometimes timelessness. Every image has two people in it - the one who creates it, and the one who views it. You never know what the other person brings to the image. For me, if someone connects w/ something I've created through my lens, that is a satisfaction for me. I like the idea of bringing joy and beauty and emotion to others.
Maybe that's a little smarmy, but it is what it is.
Art or great art depends on the viewer, we all have different tastes and thank God for that otherwise we would all be Bay City Roller fans. For me the greatest art in my opinion, or shall I say that which suits my tastes is art that describes the condition of man.
Some examples I would give would include, from literature Amerika by Franz Kafka, Catcher in the Rye by J. D. Salinger and Times Arrow by Matin Amis, from film Paris Texas by Wim Wenders and believe or not the French film Amelia, form painting Guernica by Picasso and possibly some of the music of Elgar.
Such work can build within people a sense of empathy towards fellow humans.
The world is changing, when I was younger we listened to bands like the Beatles who where forever singing about love, today I am astonished by the number of people that tell me they do not believe that love exists.
So why do I create art?
I once bought a book in a second hand bookshop by the Head of the Documentary Photography Department in Newport College, South Wales while I was studying there and I asked him to sign it for me.
After a little thought he picked up his pen and signed it with the words, To Jim, Work hard and the world will be a better place, all the best, David Hurn.
I dunno I just paint or draw untill I run out of canvas or paper ( never really run out of paint... maybe colors, but can work around that). I draw whatever is in my mind. some good, some bad,some odd and creepy. If it sells yay!! but I like showing my work.. even if the photo's sometimes doesn't turn out like the original painting/drawings.
