IS ART REALLY THAT INTIMIDATING?

 

The world of art is highly creative. Owing to its expressive nature, art industry can sometimes be referred to as exclusive and intimidating. This is the main reason that has earned artists, a reputation of possessing an intellectual and exclusive discourse, especially amongst those who find themselves less creative. This isn’t entirely true, however. While intimidating characters are surely present, the industry cannot be called as more exclusionary than others. Once you realise this simple fact, art will be more enjoyable.

The art industry is also replete with myths. Here we debunk a few and make you understand whether the artwork is actually that intimidating-

A Peculiar Vocab Is Required For People to Take You Seriously

Art galleries and museums can be discomforting for some. The sight of guards hovering around and people observing the art in sheer silence can be, not the most pleasant one after all. This is also the time when speaking can feel like disturbing. What makes it more difficult is the fact that you do not know what to say. The fear of sounding stupid or being judged adds to the fear of speaking out.

Using your curious mind to ask questions about a particular abstract art is absolutely alight, however. All the arts in a gallery have bios that can give you an idea of what the piece is all about. There’s also discourse around each art, which although seem difficult can easily be learned. Therefore, more than the vocab, it’s your understanding and skills of how well you analyse the art piece that matters.

Having A Creative Mind Is Necessary

Art, no matter whether its canvas art or any other is always subjective to taste. Since it’s all about the aesthetics, whether you appeal to a particular work or not does matter irrespective of your situation. While some amount of creativity is necessary, having a degree or an elaborate folio of artwork isn’t always mandatory. You also need to understand that it doesn’t matter even if you don’t like or understand an artwork.

Creativity is a purely subjective medium. If you don’t excel in one way, there are always other genres that you might be good at. Find out the area you have an interest in and let your creative juices flow. Since art is always evolving, there’s always a scope to learn and experiment with something new.

The Art Community Is Very Exclusive

This is true to a certain extent. Those with the same interests and experiences tend to bond together really well. This leads to the creation of a community that is all interwoven amongst each other. Just like any other industry, there’s always a way in and if you are a true art enthusiast, there’s no stopping. It’s also important to realise that although being new to the field would make you feel like an outsider to a certain extent, the situation isn’t going to be the same forever. Visiting art galleries is a great way to communicate, socialise and learn.
