Art is a complex topic to deal with. It is a word used to describe things with and without meaning. What I mean by this is not only things that are creative are termed as art but also pieces of work that are abstract and meaning derived keeping in mind the connection between something abstract and art.

It is funny that its difficult to classify art into a certain segment. The word “art” has more than what it just seems. A small painting for instance is art and a beautifully carved sculpture is art too and so is a person with physical perfection. The reach of this word is not subject to boundaries. It can describe just about anything and give meaning to the most inane object or the most absurd mixture of colours.

Art is anything creative. Anything that the human mind perceives and is put forth to view is called art. It could be a small piece in literature, a miniature illustration, a weird mixture of shapes, the way of speaking, a perfectly toned body…….. and lots more. Creativity is not just physical but is also the mental status. Must I mention art is the mixture of mens rea and actus rea. In short it’s the idea and implementation of the idea.

The idea is the germ in the head that carries with it the seed of thought. This thought is then spread like a virus which takes the shape of creativity and in order to cleanse your system, you let this virus out which is putting forth of the creativity, which takes a definite shape. This definite shape is called art!

Art is associated with adorning, beautifying and glossing whatever we do. It is a positive connotation and is something that lights up anything pastel. It gives you a sense of inner peace and calm. It is perceived to be the time taken off from the hustle-bustle of the mad race in the world to be yourself, to do what you please, to grow spiritually and otherwise as a human being and most of all to define who you are.

When we hear the word art, we only attribute it to drawing and painting. We never think of the world of dance, theatre, music, writing, speech and other fields. It’s a common misconception that all of this is cultural and not art. But few know that the line between the two is blur. The two can be mixed without a change in its meaning or purpose. This is what is cultural arts.

A person can be judged by the kind of art he has an aptitude for. His mindset can be determined just by taking a look at what art interests him and what he performs. Whats in the mind can be represented the way you want and this is called art. Its an ancient form of character reading through a persons writing, painting and signature. All of which form a critical part of art. Its mind boggling but, true.

Art is not only a way of expressing persons feelings, thoughts and perceptions but a way in which a person can lay down his creativity and talent. It is what enables a person to grow as a whole, to develop to be a better person and to establish his individuality. Its incredible that a small three-letter word has so much to it and can tell you what a person is along with fulfilling the mammoth task of beautifying the world as a whole. A world without art is like life without the drive to live.
