Graffitti – City Art II
Art in general is something you can have discussions about, especially Modern Art. But regarding the paintings on the sculpture above most of you will say “No, that’s definitely not art, that’s simply smearing paint on something”. But here is the definition of Art written in Wikipedia:
“Art is the process or product of deliberately arranging elements in a way that appeals to the senses or emotions.”
Well, elements have been deliberately arranged, haven’t they? And I bet the photo made you react in some way. We often associate art with beauty, with proper proportions. Can there be art that is ugly?
I must admit that everytime I have been passing that sculpture in the last days I actually thought that it had nothing to do with art at all. After having read the quotation of Wikipedia, I am not so sure anymore…
What is your definition of Art? Let’s talk about it in the comments’ section!
