Art nourishes the spirit and inspires artists to see things the way they are; and to see things the way they are not! Inspiration through art serves as a measure and a mirror image of a civilized society. It helps to propel nations to greater heights and lack of it truly oppresses the mind. Beauty through art design is an imperfect copy or imitation of nature, a flower a sunset or a piece of music. But what defines beauty? That’s a question that has plagued the human mind for all eternity! One can catch a glimpse of it but it fades away. It is not possible to capture or paint a circle or a shape or a line in its perfect form for it does not exist. All art, therefore, becomes an interpretation in the eyes of the beholder.
Art reveals the true essence of things but it also reveals truths that people wouldn’t otherwise see. Powerful art forms created by inspiring artists can move people by influencing behaviour, astonishment as well as character. There are many examples of such influence starting from cave paintings, music, icons, statues and carvings produced by great artists of the past but also of our times. They all share a common trait as if they were driven by a divine inspiration to create or imitate what exists and what does not. One thing is for certain; the world would be a sad place without art!
