Art and Culture
Art and culture are directly related. Many people do not see the connection between the two, however, it is very closely related. In fact, art without culture does not have the same effect and culture without art might as well be non-existent. Art and culture have dated back hundreds to even thousands of years.
Every piece of art has some form of culture put into it whether someone realizes it or not. Even coming down to the color pallet is culture related. Certain cultures use more colors more than other cultures. Their paintings may be more vibrant than another culture which may use more earthly tones. Depending on your culture the pallet of colors used will be different.
Not only is art and culture related by the art itself but art also influences culture. Art is an illustration that can change people’s opinions, values, and translating experiences that could have happened hundreds of years ago. People change, culture changes, but art does not. Art can be preserved for years and to this day it can still tell a story.
Art is also known as being a record keeper of what fact-based history cannot tell. This would be feelings and emotions. No one really states in a history book how someone felt, but by looking at art you are more in touch with how a person was feeling at that time and what was going on in their personal life.
Art is a universal language as well. It is one thing that every culture can look at and relate to. Many people use art as a form of communication when there are language barriers. People of all different societies, cultures, and diversities all can relate to art. It is a universal language of love and peace.
Art is more than just a picture on a wall or in a frame. It is a universal language and it helps keep telling stories for generations. It helps people overcome their differences and find a way to communicate even through language barriers. It is beautiful thing in our lives and we need to appreciate more art in our lives.
