The ability to create
aesthetic objects by sheer skill and imagination is art. Not many of
us gifted enough to create objects, but there are many of us who have
the aesthetic sense to appreciate a beautiful art creation. With this
comes the desire to own them if only to find happiness in possessing
this visually appealing magnificent creation. To quote Keats here –
A thing of beauty is a joy forever. Art expressionism has been in vogue
since time immemorial. The earliest of wall art was perhaps those created
by cavemen in prehistoric times. This is one trait in humans that have
lived on and will continue to live on till end of time. Little wonder
that we find many may homes, offices and business establishments with
appealing and eye-catching wall art within their premises.
Now there are different
forms of contemporary wall art that could please an individual. It could be modern art,
abstract art or contemporary art. In whatever form the art works appear,
the absolute and wholesome beauty of its creation is what one finds
immensely attractive and aesthetically pleasing. Even with handsome
and wholesome furniture a room would look bare without a wall art. One
does not really have to spend a fortune in decorating their walls. Well
chosen canvas paintings or even metal sculptures could create a magical
transformation to the rooms. There are many objects of contemporary
arts that are available these days in many artwork galleries that one
could choose for their walls to give the entire room a pleasing, warm
and welcoming aura and enhancing their home decor.
Contemporary art means
those forms of art that are created during our lifetimes that is those
works of art created from the late twentieth century to the present.
Strictly speaking contemporary art is a kind of post modern art where
in the artists rejected many modern art techniques of the early twentieth
century and included contemporary and even common place themes in their
art work. This could be in the form of abstract art or even pop art.
In the contemporary art section of an artwork gallery one can find an
assortment of themes that defies traditional or modern art. Contemporary
art has become so popular today that is not only home owners or interior
decorators who seek them for wall art decorations but also huge corporations
who are striving to integrate themselves into the world of contemporary
art. They exhibit many wall art prints that are contemporary in their premises
and are even known to organize and sponsor contemporary art award.
