Art for modern world is not the same as art for the past.
As we all know, art has become more sophisticated, more professionalized and increasingly commoditized, creating a whole new world of possibilities for creative expression.
But what about the past?
Are we still art for artists, or are we just tools for a society that is increasingly obsessed with technology?
In a recent survey conducted by the National Art Foundation (NAF), we asked more than 10,000 artists and art historians, and their friends and family, about the art that has shaped their lives.
Of the top 10 themes, the biggest draws for us were:Art as a medium of expression.
Art as social commentary.
Art for social change.
Art and art in the 21st century.
And of course, art is a powerful way to express your beliefs.
As an artist, I am proud of my work, and am able to express myself through the medium of art.
Art is a means to an end.
Art should not be viewed as something to be consumed, but something to engage in, and to think deeply about.
It should be used to challenge our own assumptions and values.
Art is a vehicle for exploration and contemplation, not for the consumption of commodities.
And as such, it should not replace or replace work, but rather should complement and augment it.
Art must be accessible to everyone.
It must be free to be enjoyed by all.
Art has always been a vehicle of social commentary, a tool to inform, provoke and provoke reflection.
In this way, art can help us confront our preconceptions about the world and our place in it.
It is the most powerful medium of artistic expression, and the most effective tool for engaging the imagination.
Art can change our lives, and it should be respected for that.
But it cannot be seen as an escape from the everyday.
It has to be embraced as part of our lives and as a way of living a meaningful life.
