Arts where it’s art

So is arts where it’s at? I would have to say “Yes” why?

Art is our way of sharing beauty with the world, yet it is also how we express ourselves. When you think of history from the beginning of humanity there has been art.  Cave art has been found around the world and scientist have shown that it was a way to express what the artist saw around them and express their creativity.prehistoric cave art as abstract art prehistoric cave art as abstract art

They have found 350 prehistoric art caves between France and Spain dating as far back as 25000 years ago preceding the end of the last ice age.  There are cave art depicting beings which aren’t familiar to us in our present time which leaves room to question was this their form of abstract art or something far more intriguing?

We say arts where it’s at because we see how we use art to another world into our reality like the wonderful artists create doing street art.

3D artWe have leaped into a time where we can create 180 viewed art pieces which simulate a repetitive pattern.

In our current age art has taken on many forms, from 2D to 3D and we have only touched the surface. Art is where it’s at because art is our direct outlet and unique to each individual person.

We have used art to share our fears, dreams, and aspirations from the beginning of time and we are not done yet.

Now that we have created the 3D printer man can set his reach further into the abyss of possibilities and truly let his imagination run wild.  To be an artist in the 21 century is an exciting gift for we are creating in untapped places and break boundaries set by a time with limited access and consciousness. Today we excel in the art field making “art where it’s at” by utilizing all of the gifts given to man.

Abstract Expressionism

Abstract Expressionism using Fractals

Abstract Expressionism is a form of symbolism. Expressionistic art relates to our physical world and distorts it for the sake of creativity. Abstract art attempts to be separate from the physical world altogether. But the reality is that people connect with art by relating to it in some way, so there was a need to define a new art movement, hence the creation of abstract expressionism.

Abstract Expressionism by ShivaSly™

Abstract Expressionistic art by ShivaSly is unique in that the artist Nikki Shiva believes that art should create beauty and upliftment. Facilitating happiness, creativity, passion, and beauty is the goal of Shivasly art. Since abstract expressionism is meant to evoke emotion, it follows that the emotions an artist would desire to evoke in others should reflect love. In order to stay connected to that inner harmony, the artist uses fractals derived from mathematics as a foundation for her abstract expressions. The expressionistic aspects of her art appeals to the viewer by drawing relationships to the relative world while the abstract aspect expands the creative mind to connect it with the spirit. The result is a naturally euphoric feeling of well being.
