Art can be rightly described as the “expression of the appealing according to aesthetic principles”. The word ‘fine’ attached with ‘art’ does no wonders to denote the remarkable quality, but it redefines the purity in the institution of art! Over the years of its study and experimentation, fine arts has been personified as ‘visual art forms’ that include painting, sculpture, architecture and print making. This implies, rightly, that this discipline tends to exclude art forms classified as craft-work or applied art (example, textiles). A synonym for what we describe herein can be ‘visual art’.
Fine arts seeks no age, it only breeds a thought that needs a vent. A child learning to paint does not care about what others might say about what he paints, such is the essence of fine arts. A person of any age or sex or religion can indulge into the extravaganza of feelings and then find a new way, into self exploration, who knows that simple mixing of colors might give him the fame of a lifetime, or even better if the palette can satisfy the excited soul!!!
Fine art is further categorized into Architecture, Ceramics, Dance, Drawing, Film, Fine art photography, Furniture, Intermedia (interdisciplinary, traditionally referred to as Fine Art Media), Literature, Music & Opera, Painting, Printmaking, Sculpture, Textiles and Theatre. Classifying art does not mean that unbreakable walls have been created around it, suffocating it to fatality. Categorizing is only done so as to create tables for each one of these because rapidly multiplying contributions in them.
The idea of fine art is expression, whatever form, whichever medium, whoever artist!! It underlines the fact the every creation is a masterpiece, every creator is an aficionado, and every medium is the most apt one!
So, let’s be the aficionado and create a masterpiece that reflects our soul and its comprehension!
Fine art can be taken up like a religion, where each day, you make your contribution by offering something to your God, good or bad, you do not know, but it is the best that you can offer, so offer it!
