Art has always been a reflection of emotions, personal struggles and groundbreaking events in a contemporary society. When a society demands or undergoes a change, art has usually subtly followed it. The Oxford Dictionary describes art as "quality, production, expression or kingdom, according to aesthetic principles, of what is beautiful, attractive or of more than ordinary importance." In fact, art is definitely an expressive platform for individuals, groups as well as society, especially the radical changes or events. It usually shows the current or a particular scenario in the political situation, economic, social, geographical, emotions spun therein, the undertones of the revolution and the riot, to name but a few.
If we regularly discuss art as a reflection of society, we start from the oldest. The "prehistoric art" consisted of paintings on the rocks and caves, which symbolized their routine lifestyles and rituals. The paintings were therefore proof of their culture, which helped historians to obtain information about life, culture and civilization during this time. The famous "Indus Valley" or "Harappa", "Greek" and "Egyptian" civilizations, had particularly productive art, including sculpture, architecture, paintings, engravings and metal art.
In fact, what we know most about these incredibly rich civilizations is only credited to their narrative artifacts and buildings. For example, "Egyptian civilization" believed in life after death. Society therefore had a strong spiritual frame and concentrated more on the human journey after death. They believed in immortality and worshiped many gods, a fact distilled from the paintings that adorned the walls of the great pyramids. However, Greek civilization was more expressive of the human form, its position and beauty, and reflected mostly on clothing, body language, hairstyles and cultures that prevailed during different periods.
Creativity adopted the sect of & # 39; art movement & # 39; to portray reality in a contemporary society, vis-a-vis, its stable fabric, regularly changing aspects and even revolutions. The effects of the contemporary socio-political scenario have also always been portrayed. For example, before the First World War, Paris used to be lively with great political activity. This restlessness influenced the development of "cubism" by Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque. "Cubism" involved the depiction of a certain subject from multiple angles, a practical serious situation then. The artistry became mysterious mainly to manifest the hatching of various political conspiracies in Paris at that time.
Expressionism was another art form that developed when society underwent transitions at various levels, including creative ones. It was a revolt against the traditional view of art. A modern method was adopted. & # 39; Modern Art & # 39; was a mixture of & # 39; Abstract Realism & # 39;, where the subject was distorted to depict its reality and emotional upheaval. The colors in the paintings have almost always depicted the true feelings of the subject, the event or the mood of the artists.
In conclusion, we may say that art may not always be beautiful aesthetically or intelligibly for everyone. However, it should be powerful enough to portray society's current emotions, including exposing harsh and subtle truths, while encouraging improvements. The only constant in the world is change. In unison, societies metamorphosis through various annals of time and art helping to capture the resulting twists in modern culture and lifestyle.
