Imagine a case where Monalisa was not what she is today and Leonardo da Vinci was not the artist of historical significance we know today. Then, imagine that Monalisa is one of the many art displays in a fast food restaurant; Perhaps you will find yourself neglecting the painting because of the assumption that there is no context that is too important to the painting, you don’t focus on the painting as a unit but admire its beauty as a whole class as any other painting in the same room, and that painting to you is just that kind of…


Here are some interesting art projects I made and the ideas behind them for this month.

1. Art is also the thought process and the end product.

What if I named this: "Scribbles which then with pretentiousness I call abstract art and fool people by putting values ​​and meanings into it... Idk lol maybe because it is a set of lines then I call it a representation of phenomena in life that are interconnected and occur simultaneously abstract on the mysterious space and time".

While that might be the correct stunt, because the painting above is just a random line I drew with no regulation or special intention. But if you…

It’s not just you who don’t understand almost all works of art from Modern and Contemporary in the Museum. For a very long time, art was very well known as a discipline that required talent, time and patience to create an object that was aesthetically pleasing and beautiful to see and that the brain could process subtly.

In the digital era, we consume very large quantities of information about the superiority idealism of an individual. An exaggerated visualization of an individual who appears to be large, successful, generous, untouchable, and near perfection. This creates unhealthy ideas about ourselves. Am I stupid?

Modern society and status anxiety, we are constantly reminded by the environment and the media that we will never be good enough. You’re going to a party, someone will ask, “What do you do?”. Their future reactions will be determined by your answer, whether they will be amazed and interested in talking more to you or belittling you and leaving you.
