Artistic – Rediscovering the Artist in You
It is a social habit that we identify a person by his/her profession. But we often come across a banker or an IT professional who plays guitar very well or has a good skill in painting. In such cases, isn’t the banker also an artist? Or is it that only someone who practices art professionally can be called an artist?
Art – A Medium of Transmission and Interpretation
Renowned Russian author Leo Tolstoy once said, “Art is not a handicraft, it is the transmission of feeling the artist has experienced.” It is quite obvious that, as humans, all of us have feelings. And in our day-to-day life, there are many feelings which exalt us – like looking at beautiful flower with dewdrops on it or at a laughing child. We speak of these feelings, we capture them on our smartphone cameras. It is our way of ‘transmission’ of that feeling.
Art is an important medium for the transmission of feeling. It is not only transmission, but also interpretation of feeling. So in a painting of a flower with dew on it, you are also expressing what you felt when you saw that flower – the happiness, the freshness, the beauty you felt within. Thus, art in itself is a form of expression that allows you to convey your innermost feelings with clarity and aesthetic value. Unlike direct conversations, art allows you to throw away all the garbs and be honest about what you feel.
