Art in different cultures
Although many people do not realize it, art comes in many forms around the world. Anywhere from America all the way to Korea, there are forms of art expressed differently. For example, people in Paris, France show their forms of art by hanging some of the most famous paintings in the region in galleries and museums. This resulted in Paris getting the nickname “City of Art.” Another example, in Egypt, it is commonly known for people to display art in the form of sculpting. Many of these sculptures signify famous rulers or gods and goddesses.
In America, we think of art being something that one displays in any form they would like. As long as you are enjoying the time passing, whether it may be throwing paint on a canvas or defining every curve of a sculpture, you have the opportunity to simply have fun with it. One person who took advantage of this was Kayleen Stanley. Her most colorful painting, consisting of eight colors, was painted because she thought it would look “neat.” The most unique feeling one can have is being able to let their mind run free. Next time you see a work of art, be sure to think how it would be revealed in another culture.
