A is for Art! Art is an indispensible part of any society, as it captures the essence, the culture, traditions and norms of a particular society and depicts it in a way that is eye-catching, vibrant and full of joy. Since art is the mirror of the society it also reflects not so good qualities of the society as well.

And the definition of Art says that art is an expression or application of human creative skill and imagination, typically in a visual form such as painting or sculpture, producing works to be appreciated primarily for their beauty or emotional power. Art also defines the numerous branches of creative activity including painting, music, literature, dance and theatre.

While art in the present times have become more commercialised there were days when it was created for the pleasure of the artist. Hence every art form took some time to finish thus resulting in a product that was priceless. I am not negating the fact that today’s artists are not hard working or are not producing art for their pleasure but when I see young artists taking the short cut way and producing more than one piece of art I am reminded of all the senior artists who painstakingly took years to complete one masterpiece after another.

So here’s a tribute to to those artists as I celebrate A to Z challenge with A is for Art.
