Art is one of the most underrated topics to be discussed as a main ‘topic’ yet one thing people can’t live without. Art is not just a single thing, but a vast area which is connected to our lives through different wires. Art helps us to express ourselves in a better and creative way. Over time, society has witnessed various ways of cultural fields such as painting, graphics, sculptures, architecture, theatre, dance, cinema, music, literature. Culture has evolved with the entrance of modernism by enhancing new forms of art like photography, video, art, media art. Thus, we can say that art presents beauty in many forms where man, nature, and human relationships or man-nature relationships are the pillars of knowledge and inspiration.
Art gives people choices to study various perspectives. It doesn’t connect people physically but through the way of perception. Art tries to bring people together even without the physical presence of human beings. Many art movements during different eras have changed the perception of people. The ways of perceiving art have evolved a lot. Art can affect a person personally as well as can help embrace your inner self, bringing a large change, be it positive or negative.
Some main ways how art influence society:
1. Art preserves history. It has a huge impact on society from history. We look into the history of old times, look at sculptures and try to study the communities of old times. Just by looking, we try to respect and appreciate the beauty of it. It has taught people to appreciate past and present cultures from around the globe.
2. Art has the power of creating awareness among people about various social issues, which brings different people together for a common social cause.
3. Art builds a connection between two cultures which helps people to build respect for the transitions and beliefs of others.
For example. Artworks like ‘Madhubani’, and many others tell us and teach us about the various communities that exist and practice the artwork. Their artwork is their identity. It represents their culture ethnicity and ethics, which is extremely important, especially in today’s times when we are these days losing the touch with our traditions, so it’s very important to be aware of what has happened in the past few days.
