What should Art mean to you and me and How should an Individual treat Art What are the Characteristics of Art and who an Artist.......?
Art is by heart!!!!
Anything come from within the heart is art.
Anything which touches the heart is art.
Anything for touching anyone's heart is art.
Art really is something that is created out nothing, It pretty much what comes from the heart and creativity and most people don't know what their creating if you start. It can be considered as many things. A painting, drawing, or writing. That's what it always has meant to me and for me it's been writing.
Art tells us the imagination of t he human beign

That's a very interesting question. In my humble opinion, an Artist is anyone who thinks and process ideas creatively, it shouldn't be about pleasing others, but getting your emotions and ideas into an image or piece of writing to be kept (hopefully) for the rest of time.
Art is (a cliché I know) always in the eye of the beholder,but that's true, what you might see as art, I might not (and vice versa) but that's fantastic because it means there will always be discussions (or arguments) about art, and that means there is passion with art.
For example, I'm a massive fan of street art, yet to some its just criminal vandalism!
Art refers to a diverse range of human activities, creations, and expressions that are appealing to the senses or emotions of a human individual. The word "art" may be used to cover all or any of the arts, including music, literature and other forms. It is most often used to refer specifically to the visual arts, including media such as painting, sculpture, and printmaking. However it can also be applied to forms of art that stimulate the other senses, such as music, an auditory art. Aesthetics is the branch of philosophy which considers art.
Art to me is anything your interested in doing a creative way. You like playing videogames and you set up your own method of playtime and follow it, its your Art of Application. Art is whatever you want to see it as!
And WHoArtNow, when you say "Street Art" do you mean morals or graffiti, or acting, or those little sketches of people when the artist puts a big head on them or what?
Personall Thranax, I'm into stencil art and street instalment art. Stencil art a lot of people are getting into thanks to some pretty well known names. Swoon, Nick Walker, D:Face and of course Banksy, but street instalments are less well known. For a good example, do a youtube search for plastic bag man Joshua Allen Harris, even if you don't agree its art, you'll still love what he does!
I did as you said and looked him up, I have to say that is amazing! I really enjoyed it. Kinda makes me want to go to the city sometime and try it =P. I can see why you like it, it's very entertaining and something new. Maybe you can provide me with a messenger address and you can send some more
If you like the slightly 'out there' art, especially graffiti, street art and illustration, go have a look at Wooster Collective (.com) and WhoKilledBambi(.co.uk) they have some awesome artwork postings on there, and a really good RSS.
(Please not, I'm NOT the owner of either of those sites and am not affiliated to them in anyway, I'm just a fan spreading the love!)
Fans of artists shd always promote them cheers for doing, as artists generally don t push themselves enough.....Need more people like you.
Art is the use of imagination power and skills for the creation of environment, aesthetic objects that can be shared with others........... rather then what it is...................an an artist is the one who uses his imagination to bring it on to reality........................
Art to me, inspires or/and is thought provoking, good or bad but it usually creates some kind of a reaction,
An Artist is the person who inspires, creates or makes you think!
Art is anything that you create with your own two hands--whether it's via a computer program, assembling of materials, drawing, painting, crocheting. It's the result of extending your emotions to the physical world. Art is what gives you joy. It's also something that communicated to others without written or spoken words. At least that's how I see it.
Art is an expression coming from the heart, mind and soul of an artist, using a variety of medium, from paintbrush, computer mouse, a digital camera and so on. It is 'ageless' in the sense, a child can create art as much as a grandmother. It's also a form of communication, in visual form.
Russian opinion ...
I think that there is art in itself - it does not depend on our sympathy or antipathy. It is all! Whether we like or not, we leave for our priydut other and they would laugh, but we can admire the art of ...
Art is whatever the observer wants it to be.
Everyone has their own thoughts and feelings about a piece of art they are viewing.
Art may provoke strong feelings or a heady discussion.
it can sooth,anger,depress, enlighten,frustrate or inspire....
You know how it is often said (whether we believe it or not) that "man has been in created in God's image?"
I see art as the spiritual part of man attempting (even if not consciously, and even if the person doesn't even realize he has a "spiritual part")) to create something in the image and likeliness of himself (whether that is of the human form, human emotions, the human mind, his experiences/observations, or man's observances of life on Earth in general).
Just as the thought that a God or higher force may have created "Earthly" creatures in His/its own image would imply that creativity plays a role in any spiritual force; and that it may be that level of "intellectual creativity" (rather than just procreating) that separates humans from other creatures. It has been said that highly gifted individuals usually have a "sense of higher calling" - so it all ties together (at least in the case of non-insane artists).
Lisa-- As an artist, I like your interpretation and would agree with it, adding maybe a cultural perspective to it. It is so interesting that kids actually go through developmental stages in their ability to create art that can be witnessed as far as their cognitive and world view.
Of course there are many theories on aesthetics from the classical to behavioralism. The field as far as the nature of art & research is wide, wide open.
Then there is this: http://www9.georgetown.edu/faculty/irvi … world.html The institutional theory of art, just made for cynics, which basically states that we may consider anything art, as long a we put it in the proper institutional space and sometimes give the participants large sums of $$. If you want to really p*ss off a bunch of legit. fine art types as far as the deep down reason they do their work, there is always this theory, .
Sometimes being angry helps an artist create better work, too, .
Art is the physical expression of the emotions and the hidden talets
Sometimes it helps to be insane too. Check out the Richard Dadd link:

Cool! He reminds me of Hieronymus Bosch, who also must of been insane:

Hi I am an artist and in my case, I consider art to be something that comes from within, a tiny spark of inspiration that flows from my inner core, out through my hands and usually ends up as something attractive to look at and admire (in my opinion).
The Collins gem dictionary says that art is the creation of works of beauty especially paintings or sculpture.
When I originally started making my art, I had no idea that I was an artist, I just knew that I wanted to create things from metal. You see, I have always been a welder and have always worked with stainless steel, so that became my medium. I dont use paints or anything similar to get colours in my work I just use the metal itself and the secrets that it holds within to bring colour.
What really annoys me about the art world though, is the people who run big galleries, I say big (I mean big for my local area of North Devon) who profess to know about art, when I approached one that is run by a local council, and asked for exhibition space which I desperatly need, as my work really has to be seen by the naked eye to be appreciated fully, as it looses so much in pictures, I was refused on the basis that my work had no artistic merit, it supposedly dosen't tell a story or show a collection of works, I was told, its not what the people around here would expect to see on our walls its not the sort of stuff they would buy.
At first this damning criticism crippled me for a while, as I dont have much confidence as an artist (well I didnt back then) but then I thought no! I am not going to listen to you, I will continue to create my work and show it in any display space that is willing to give me the time of day.
So that is what I continue to do, at the time I got turned down by the gallery, I was selling my work internationally and at that point had sold over 200 pieces of my work, but that still dosent make me an artist apparently in the world of the real artists whoever they might be.
I havent got any formal qualifications in the arts, so maybe thats the problem, but stuff them I say, dont ever let anyone stifle your own creativity, only ever listen to that inner voice that wants to express itself, in whatever art form that may be.
I know I am a real artist though, as like I say, my creations come from within me and people who bother to comment on my work normally say such wonderful things about it and are genuinely amazed by my creations.
Who would of thought that plain old boring stainless steel could have such an effect on the general public, or produce such beautifully coloured artworks like mine.
Thanks for listening to my ramble Jake Howard ArtsApart.co.uk
What is art? wow a question that would dive into the conundrums of your philosophy? I guess personally art for me is a way to express my emotions in way that can be received by everyone on a different level. It is a means to evoke another emotional response from another human being and in that sense is my way of communicating with the people around me implicitly.
Art, is whatever the artist chooses it to be. Yes i think that sums it up nicely.
Art is the recreation of the human experience and the world around him/her on a subjective level.
I think art is anything asthetically pleasing, whether or not it's functional.
Art is a state of mind. An artist should continuosly question the fundamental rules of art. Art is a phenomenon, a strange loop, a paradox. Art is the question and the answer at the same time.
Art is our friendly community Irish Hubber who fancies himself a pirate and captain of the ship, Wild Imagination hehe but really, art are expressions of skill and care and great thought with products of great beauty. Favorite hangouts of mine, art galleries and museums
In college I took a lot of crap from people saying that my music was not art, but rather, "commercial." So therefore, anything commercial is not art???
So I developed a twist to explain to them what it is that I try to do.
I'm a "craftsman" more than an artist. I "compose" musical tables and chairs that are basically more functional than art, but can be considered beautiful. A craftsman gets his hands dirty, doesn't mind doing so and in the process really enjoys his work. His friends are usually not so high brow and pompous (perhaps).
What this means to me is that the simplest utilitarian, useful things can become art if we allow it to be. However, overall, I think the creation of "art" generally is an interpretation of what we experience in life. Therefore, the whole range of experiences and emotions can be found in "art." And I think it's true with even utilitarian things. Some everyday objects just make me happy, while others seem to do nothing for me.
Rambling thoughts, but that's kind of how I perceive it.
I think art is something that has the ability to change one's state of mind, through the experience of viewing or making it. But there is more to it than that.
The most moving art display I ever saw was Goya's Disasters of War. It was disturbing and very upsetting. The images were gruesome, ironic, and yet profound.
Art is the cerebral expression of the human experience and condition.
It exists through different mediums, has been found on cave paintings and circuit boards, and is supposedly what separates humanity from animaliae.
To ask what art is
is to seek a definition of what it's not.
And it's hard to split that which encompasses everything.
Art is a creative expression that allows us to show a artistic reprensentation of the world around us.
Being able to participate in creative activities helps society to cope with issues and find solutions through paint, photography, poetry, sculpture, chalk, pencil, and all other mediums.
Rappers are NOT artists because they contribute no good to society and are basically illiterate yet almost every student listens to it. (Yo my home dog Yo) =]
Art is anything you may find interesting and an artist is anyone who aquires an exquisite way on how to look at cetain things. I myself I consider an artist, to which I'm a Digital Studio Photographer by proffesion.
What is Art?
Creative efforts toward internal or external realities.
Art is unlimited creativity in any artistic field which can ignite peoples emotions and leave lasting memories.
