We usually under estimate the small things in life which could make large differences, a word as small as just three letters has so many meanings to it. Yes, I am talking about the word art. In childhood we had art classes, where we were taught how to draw or paint for that matter so whenever we see this word, the first thing that comes to our mind are paintings. But is art’s definition limited to paintings, well for that matter does art have any definition? According to me art is a varied form of expression, I believe art resides in each one of us, by this I mean that each one of us is creative in our own way. Each person has a different perception of art. I believe in this ever-busy lifestyle art is an escape from the chaos and pressures of the real world. Through art you can live in a world of fantasy, you can be anyone you want it does not have to follow rules. An engineer can be a melodious singer and a doctor can make perplexing sketches. You don’t have to explain complex theories like you have to in science. Art itself is a solution and a remedy. Art is therapeutic. I agree with the great artist Pablo Picasso and I quote him “Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life”. To my understanding this statement means that art allows you to open your mind beyond your own world and helps you view the world from others perspectives. It is fascinating that how just one piece of art be it painting, music, dance etc. can be approached or interpreted in many different ways. When I pass by an art form that I appreciate I would try and look at the way the artist wanted to present it, but when it comes down to actually explaining what art means to me, I cannot put it down in suitable words because I believe it is a complex form of emotion which is being expressed by the artist. After reading this article many would disagree with me and that is what art is all about, that is what is so astounding about art, such a small word can have such a broad meaning.
