I have indelible memories of coming over to museums back in grade school during our field trips, in my Humanities class in college and in my recent Seoul sojourn. Those were the times when I got the glimpse of jaw-dropping masterpieces like the Spolarium (by Filipino national artist, Juan Luna). I became appreciative of some while other pieces were just too deep (or eccentric) to be understood by this finite mind of mine. But I can say that those visits paved the way for art to be brought to light in my life.
You see, art is not limited to drawings or paintings only. Through time, art (or the arts) has evolved in forms, style and definition. It is undeniable that certain individuals have helped shaped its different categories. Most are familiar with big names in visual arts like Vincent van Gogh, Leonardo da Vinci, Michaelangelo and Pablo Picasso. Their creations are highly-merited and marketed up to now. On the other hand, present-day art enthusiasts hail the likes of Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein and Bansky.
This day, how can one contribute to the arts, make a name and sell? One site (nymag.com) suggests to “stay on trend”. Do you want to know about some art directionves for 2013? Stay with me, read on and keep in mind these guidelines:
