Summary:
For as long as man has been alive, he has observed the aesthetics and
beauty of life. It seems that it is innate in us to create and change and

recreated his vision and told a story via stonewalls.

Article Body:
For as long as man has been alive, he has observed the aesthetics and
beauty of life. It seems that it is innate in us to create and change and
this has been demonstrated throughout the ages. Even the cave man
recreated his vision and told a story via stonewalls.

All art is a communication! The artist is creating his/her vision via any
artistic outlet such as drawing, painting, sculptures, photography,
graphic design or filmmaking etc.

It’s any art we see! The natural landscape is a powerful tool artists
have used throughout time. We seem to want to recreate what we are
looking at and at the same time change it to put our own nuances and
character into it.

Art is not limited to drawing, painting, sculptures etc. There are the
living visual arts such as the painstaking shaping of the Bonsai tree or
creating the next beautiful hybrid rose. We started with the incredibly
gorgeous vintage rose and now we literally have hundreds of different
kinds of roses in various sizes, colors and fragrance.

Dancing, figure skating, gymnastics, ballet, and even acting are also
considered visual art forms.

You are basically taking something that has been done before, or a piece
of life, and are making it new by changing or adding your own character
to the piece. That’s all imagination is!

Just in the 20th century alone we have created new forms of art such as
art nouveau, pop art, ethnic art to name a few. The subject of art is so
vast that there is literally no ceiling to creativity and that is what
makes this subject so incredibly interesting.

For as long as man exists, we will find a way to create new and
interesting things to look at. It is after all in our nature to do so!
