Can Art CHANGE the WORLD?

2014 - 1(3)

This is a very good question and one I endeavor to answer and I also aim to provide a reason for this and some insight into how it can be accomplished however you apply it in Singing, Performance or Art in General so LISTEN UP.

This is a big question and therefore be broken down into manageable parts.


Firstly ART this can be anything from Singing to painting what I wounder is the actual definition?

“the 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.”
So basically anything that is appreciated for beauty or emotional power is Art and Yes that includes me and you.

What is CHANGE?

“make or become different”

Change is impacting society around you sharing an idea or a philosophy and have it become contagious to cultures all around the world. Personally change to me is about changing even if it is just one perception of the individuals around me an extending that, I think no matter what it is that you do whatever your expression is it can create this.


The WORLD You might say well this is impossible! Think about the world in this way the World is a body once an infection takes hold and multiplies it becomes stronger and overpowers the body making the defenses and oppositions in the body weak. Ideas are like this whatever it is that you are trying to express to the World whatever message you are desperate to share can create change, if you believe in it strong enough there is no way that it can not influence the world around you. You know why? Because ideas are contagious as the great Sherlock Holmes said himself to paraphrase:

“Once an idea takes hold in there it is too strong to eradicate” 

And he is right an idea is something that will be passed from generation to generation I mean look at the idea that Blue is for boys and Pink is for girls and in most of western society we still hold to this principle although we have long forgotten why it is so or what the origin of the idea was in the first place.

So you want to change the World with whatever art it is that you do then don’t just share an idea but let it become infectious let it be a voluntary thing where they believe in the idea so much that that they believe it originated from them and belongs to them.

Art: Perspective

Perspective

So PERSPECTIVE scary word! It is actually very easy and there are some very easy, simple steps that you can use to accomplish this as well. This is my first go of perspective and I thought initially that it would be very difficult and time consuming, Ok well it is time consuming I’m not gonna lie.

I will be making a YouTube video to follow up on how to do this in the coming days…

There are a few types of perspective but they generally start out like this:

 

 

They all start with a point a single dot in one point perspective yes you guessed it there is only one dot in two point perspective two dots where they go depends on where you want the horizon to be. You draw the lines of the street or the room all aiming for the dot in the horizon, you will need:

  1. Ruler
  2. Pencil HB
  3. Paper
  4. Photo of textures and materials you will use in your street or room

All of the lines that go more or less vertically need to be in line with the dot or dots depending on which dot the lines are closest to if you notice all of the horizontal lines are straight and do not point towards the dot.

If you found this at least slightly helpful share it with a friend or follow me on Twitter or on WordPress to hear about the update of my YouTube Art Channel.

Have a nice day : )

Superheroes

So I was drawing this and thinking to myself of the days when I watched the TV series of Superman (Smallville) you remember it right? Anyway it also got me thinking what do you think is a Superhero? Why do we idolize them? I am going to test a theory that in our world there are a lot of bad things that happen a lot of disasters. Naturally our brain wants to balance this fact by creating Superheroes this includes the X Men, Hulk and the Incredibles it puts into perspective the forces good and evil and how we are effected by them and also protected from them. Who was the Superhero of your Life/Childhood?
