'What is arts, the fine arts, decorative arts, performing arts etc', almost all of us get confused somewhere while talking about arts and its applications. People wonder if it's making sculptures and painting pictures or it is even constructing buildings or it's making films and movies.
Well, Encyclopedia Britannica Online describes art as 'use of creative imagination and skills in producing aesthetically pleasing objects, environments and experiences which can be shared with others'. Keeping this definition in view, it's obvious that practical considerations of arts are of least concerns to artists and their only purpose is to bring out aesthetic pleasure.
This definition mainly focuses on visual arts such as paintings, sculptures and photography etc. From this definition, we see that this art has been around as early as human kind.
Let's Know Art Once For All:
For interested readers, I guess it's wise to write couple of more lines about 'the arts'. For understanding better, just picture life without any colors, music, poetry, paintings, buildings, languages and designs. Yes, these all are forms of the arts, in one way or other. The Arts is split into three different classes; Visual Arts, Auditory Arts and Performance Arts. This all types can come together as well.
Visual Arts, as name implies, is the creations which we can see, look and watch. It's oldest form of arts. Egyptians used paintings and sculpting everything about their life and religions. Greeks on the other hand, took art of sculpting to the new levels of perfection. Romans relished their artistry in drawings and paintings mostly.
Modern artists use computer programs and machine oriented environments to make beautiful 'creations'.
'Arts' and its essentials:
So far we have discussed arts as 'aesthetically pleasing creations'. So, if you create a beautiful and details rich drawing through latest graphic designing program, would that still be 'art'?
According to definition, every creative thing that is aesthetically pleasing, regardless of its creation process is an art, though the most commendable creations are those which are hand crafted. Like contemporary hand crafted sculptures relating movie art or sci-fi art are superior forms of art. Similarly, hand drawn paintings still outgun quickly all other computer generated paintings.
In hand made objects, artists try to achieve perfection under inherent limitations. Things normally done by machines become wonderful miracles when performed manually and this 'manual labor' is what makes hand crafted creations masterpieces.
Sculptures and Arts:
Historically art of sculpturing is as old as are human beings. Woods, metals and stones were commonly used materials for making sculptures. Artists used to make sculptures of their deities, their kings, their ancestors and like that. Though wooden sculptures have largely been disappeared but stone and metallic sculptures have successfully made their ways to our age.
Contemporary artists have given new life to this centuries old art. Sculptures made today barely belong to any deities or gods and they aren't even used in any rituals anymore. Sole purpose of making them is to satisfy their artistic instincts and delight observers' aesthetics. Inspiration largely follows Movie Art and sci-fi art and literature.
Combined with ego friendly movements and Avant grade impressions in arts and literature, artists are ensuing scrap metals to make Art From Scrap.
Christmas is not just a sacred event; it's a season for special reasons. Friends and family gather around to make prayers, pass gifts, eat foods and make merriment. Decorating home interiors with flowers and lighting becomes job of the weeks and then passing cute and beautiful gifts is another story.
How are you looking forward to enjoy this Christmas? It's a great opportunity to have all friends and family dine together under a roof. There are endless games, resolutions, foods to make Christmas memorable. So, if you a list of people for inviting in Christmas party, let's add fun to it with following activities.
What does first come in mind when we talk about Christmas home decoration? 'Christmas Tree', this is it. So, let's do it in different way. It's about Holiday decoration with little out-of-box thinking and improvising with metal crafts.
Though traditional beaded ornaments, tree toppings, ribbons, garlands are great for decorating Holiday tree, but we can do it all with modern scrap metal art. These Metal crafts would not only be true decorative, they will also be instrumental in earning instantaneous 'wow' from the guests.
Following is an example of glamorous golden Christmas tree. The height of craftsmanship can be felt through embellished garlands and beaded ornaments made out of metal crafts. This entire Christmas tree has scrap metal structure which means it won't wither away a week after holiday season. It's ever green and could be used for all the Christmases to come in life. Did you notice stars at the top and golden apples all around the tree? This is what metal crafts stand for.
Room Decorations For Christmas:
Like Christmas tree, dressing each room with certain Christmas objects and fascinating festive decorations needs some extra hours of effort and improvisation.
Most of the times, we buy decorations that become useless as soon as Holiday season passes off. So, why not get decorate with objects and things that won't lose their importance and luster throughout the year? It's wise and would pay off in the long run.
I am a big fan of recycled art and love its sub domain that is sci-fi art. sci-fi art is all about using metal junk to make surreal objects often related to science fiction. And the best thing about it is it doesn't hurt ego, instead it beautifies it and guarantees its health.
You can go for traditional scientific characters of Movie Art or even have your own custom made objects. Possibilities are endless as long as you are imaginative and intelligent to use these objects cleverly. Important thing to note is the size of these decorative. If you have large furniture articles, it's wise to have decorations in bigger size so as to make setting harmonious. Bigger objects surrounded by small sized furniture look odd and dis proportioned.
No Guts No Glory:
Environment set the pace and tone of event and there is little doubt in that lot of interesting things would just fail you if surroundings aren't good. So, don't lose a thing in a book.
So, pay special care to decorating your home where all fun is going to be unleashed. Get the space where people can easily sit and dine and eat and dance. Because this is what we know for Holiday Season.
'In 1997, I got my first computer. I have always been a big fan of video game and movies so I used my computer mainly for playing video games. After sometimes, I needed a sound system so that I could watch my favorite movies and play favorite songs in my room', my friend was telling me. He continued, 'but, couple of years later, my computer and its accessories started looking too slow to operate and enjoy. So, I bought new computer. It's now 2012 and I buy a new computer every 2 years'. He ended up saying, 'I wonder why my things become junk too quickly'? My story with my mobile companionship was almost similar to my friend's. Every second year, I replaced my mobile phone with the then latest one.
Dilemma of Our Lives – We are intolerant for Old Things:
We buy the things very passionately and when this passion drains down, those purchased items start looking like a total waste and junk.
I guess everybody around the world is doing same; buying new and throwing old out. Some buy furniture every 2 years and others buy vehicles. For some things such as dresses and clothes, I know, we can't help buying new ones. But for others, I am confused why we all are doing this. I have decided to not to throw away my old things. Though I am not any artist, yet I am great collector of art from scrap relating to sci-fi art or even Movie Art.
Anyhow, thanks to recycled art that is creating balance between old and new. I am surprised with the height of creativity and inventiveness involved in Recycled Art and I wonder how these artists make so beautiful and unmistakably original pieces of art from scrap.
My Aunt and Her Views about Art:
I went to my aunt's home who is really very refined in her taste for art collection. I don't really know what exact definition of art is, but I like the way my aunt explained it to me. She said, 'this world in itself is an art and everything in it is an example of art and the best art lies in things that are aesthetically pleasing'. She told me another thing, 'the older the piece of art, the higher the value it has'. I don't understand it even, but I like to see old things with more interest.
So, from that day, I always go for an art piece that catches me with its creativity. Following are my inspirations and I love to decorate my interiors and exteriors with these sci-fi art and movie art objects.
My Home – Scrap Metal Museum:
From front door to backyard of my home, I have decorated my whole house with scrap metal art. In my garden I have flowers and animals made of scrap metals, while in my porch I have bikes and tractors. In my home, I have tables and chairs made out of art from scrap. My stairs are decorated with photo frames and ceilings are decorated with pendants. In fact no part of my home goes without these objects of art.
Always unique and beautiful, these articles are really enough to impress any visitors in home. They look them and appreciate the ingenuity required to make them. Have you ever tried to decorate your home with these genuine beauties?
