Art and culture are topics and features which have been around for centuries. And in the current day and age we are increasingly seeing a move towards art moving online into a digital platform format as well as traditional “offline art” Throughout this site we feature online art and continue to challenge the mainstream and publicise art as we see it both online and offline.
You can see some of the latest additions to the site on our paintings page We believe that art should be experienced from all ages and backgrounds and that there should be no barriers to art whether , social , economical or otherwise. This was one of the major motivators for this website to be created as art and information relating to art and its sources can be freely spread across this site without the fear of censorship or repercussions.
Why Is Art Important?
A question which we got more often than you might expect here at abbywrightillustration is “why is art important” well in our experience , there are hundreds of reasons to explain way art is important. Simply too many to count. However we will endeavour to try and explain our main reasons as to why art is important and why it should be valued by society as a whole.
One of the main reasons why art is important is the overall value it can bring to society. Art can bring value to society in a variety of different ways overall. One of the main ways in which art can bring value to society is through symbolism. Symbolism is a very important part of communication as it means information and ideas can be conveyed in an alternative format.
Art has survived for millions of years in many different forms from ancient carvings to ancient tombs and structures.In order to fully appreciate art for what it is it is important that these pieces of history can be preserved for future generations.
Without art we would not be able to understand some of the history and ideas from eras long before ours. Art plays a central role in history symbolising different eras , monarchies and communication between cultures for a signifcant period of time.
How Has Art Influenced Culture?
There are countless ways in which art has influenced culture overall. One of the main ways in which art has influenced culture is through the way we interpret different trends in society. For example art has heavily influenced many different types of clothing and fashion. Increasingly many fashion designers look for increasingly more outlandish outfits , often art is one of their major influences in doing so.
Another key way in which art has influenced popular culture is the association with money. Art has always been treasured by many in the higher echelons of society. However in the 21st century perhaps more than ever art has reached its higher ever value overall. This is partly due to the number of people with large amounts of money at their disposal as well as the value placed on art due to its history.
Overall to conclude it is clear that the Art world has had a hugely significant influence on culture and society as a whole. It is clear from the value of art as well as the length of time it has been around that it is highly valued and is likely to be around for a lot longer in the years to come.
