Art exists since the humankind does, I think. The first and broadest sense of art is the one that has remained closest to the older Latin meaning, which roughly translates to “skill” or “craft.”
Art stimulates persons’ emotions, feelings, thoughts. Sometime the piece of art is magnificent, makes you astonished and speechless, some becomes masterpiece and are ‘alive’ for forever.
Starting to talk about art has a reason, that is an article I saw accidentally. I was amazed by the idea and loved a lot the creations of an artist Richard Shilling. Using a beauty of nature he creates natural beauty one never could think about, neither do and see.
