Without this freedom, art can exist, but something valuable will be lost from it. When art loses the purity of its original intended form, it cannot be presented at its full potential. We cannot censor art. Art is any medium that is expressed creatively and succeeds in enlightening a truth about the human condition. The "human conditi...

  • Piece Of Art
    478 words
    To see a scorned, beaten, and crucified man lying dead in the arms of his mother is an image, which can inspire overwhelming emotions within the heart of an observer. Yet, for the longest time I've had such difficulty looking at Michelangelo's Pieta or any piece of art in this way. To me, art has never been about expressing oneself or conveying a message to others, but simply creating an image for the sake of beauty and perfection. When I look at the Pieta I see a cold, solid mass of marble carv...

  • People Look At A Graffiti Painting
    837 words
    Struggling through poor articulation, here's an attempt to argue against the dominant view of society on the subject of street vandalism -- which I like to call habitat re-decoration -- expressed nicely by an anonymous conservative web-site: Graffiti is a crime. Graffiti is vandalism. Graffiti is not art. The same web-site went on to say that graffiti damages surfaces to the point of permanently changing the character of the surface and the character of the neighborhood. This restructuring of on...
  • Expressive Art Forms
    880 words
    Art is expression. It comes in many forms and is used in many ways. Coexisting with society (which forces us to conform to its "strictly business" style), is a "no holds barred" type of counterculture. In response to society's dress codes, standards, and unwritten laws, a counterculture of tattoos, piercings, alternative hair-styles and clothing styles flourishes in every downtown, fashion runway, modern record, and popular magazine, and is spreading quickly to the bodies and closets of today's ...
  • Self Expression As An Art
    527 words
    Art today within our culture is mainly all about self-expression. Society or at least the American's are so convinced that self-expression is a way of showing a form of art. Although, it is uncertain why art has changed from realism to a form of self-expression, but there are many different assumptions why. I'd generalize and say that the difference between Realism and self-expression of art is on a continuous scale. Furthermore, both forms of art are still being done today, although the most co...
