Xavier Sawada – What is Art?

September 15, 2009

Art is created when an artist begins with a concept he/she wants to express, and then relays it to his/her audience through some sort of medium. The concept could be of an emotion, a state of mind, a thought, how an object looks/feels to the artist, etc. Art is successful when the artist understands his/her intended audience (which could be just him/herself), and has the technical skills necessary to reveal his/her concept to it. This makes the value of a work of art very subjective, so it is hard to say what “good” or “bad” art is.

This is Bleu II by Joan Miro:
