Art — what is it? Is it a set of movements, visual aesthetics, mixture of colors, component of multiple objects or the style of a building?

It is difficult to give a true definition of art, since everyone views it differently, but it is possible to describe and explain why it is has an extensive impact on our lives.

It is difficult to give a true definition of art, since everyone views it differently, but it is possible to describe and explain why it is has an extensive impact on our lives.

Many say they are not familiar with art or not into the “art scene,” but fail to realize that we are surrounded by it every day. The houses and buildings we gaze at, the clothes we wear, the food we eat and the device or paper you are reading this on is art.

The earliest form of art dates back to the Paleolithic era when the famous Flintstones rode dinosaurs and homo sapiens drew on cave walls. It is unbelievable and amazing to have the opportunity to experience and watch art evolve to it’s current potential.

Many take this opportunity for granted and give art fake appreciation by posting aesthetic museum pictures on Instagram for the likes. It is worth more than that.

Now, imagine Earth without art. Not able to, right? Colors will be meaningless and our expressions would be limited. I cannot stress its importance in our daily lives, how it greatly impacts who we are and how we perceive things.

On the other hand, others see things with more meaning and passion since they are more open to the artistic world. Their perception of grass is greener and they seem to appreciate things more in life.

I believe we could always become a better version of ourselves with a little help of channeling our inner creative side and beginning to appreciate art more than we did before, while looking at Michelangelo’s The Last Judgement in the Sistine Chapel for the first time.
