Why is art so universal? Can’t we see the beauty of a painted tree or the intricate design of a chess board outside of the realm of our own experience? Can’t we see the greatness of a child’s play or the sensitivity of an autistic child? Yes, and then we see them trying to teach us with their art…
The truth is, we can’t see these things outside of ourselves. We only see them within the limits of our own experience. And when we look at the world through other peoples’ eyes, it is not just a matter of looking good. It’s a matter of how we can let them see us as humans.
When we start to look at traditional art in the 21st century, we realize that we are missing out on a huge source of inspiration and knowledge about the world. We look at the masters and realize that they were able to do something that we could never do. When we look at Rubens and Sibelius, we notice a lack of familiarity.
Why was Rubens more famous than Giotto? Because he wrote two books about the same subjects, which every person living under the sun should know about. Why was da Vinci more famous than Florence? Because he designed greater works than most people ever will.
In fact, we shouldn’t be surprised when someone like Florence or da Vinci makes their rounds. After all, each of these men created art that spoke to many cultures and also had profound meaning to their own personalities. Each of these artists wanted their work to become recognized and for that to happen they needed a universal market. For that they needed to find a medium through which to communicate their unique voice, style and art.
In doing so, they found a medium through which they could communicate their message to millions of people around the world. Today, when you walk into any museum, or into your favorite bookstore, or go online to learn about art, you can see that almost every art piece there is has some underlying meaning to it. People are looking to share their feelings and experiences and also have fun learning about the world. Why is this? Why is it that people all over the world find meaning in art and choose to make art their own?
The answer to that question is simple. Art is Universal. It’s not localized and it isn’t exclusive to any particular culture, region or country. This means that each culture can benefit from having their culture represented in their art and that every person can have access to authentic art. This is what Florence did with her Mona Lisa. She allowed the audience to have a physical representation of her masterpieces, thus allowing everyone to enjoy the beauty of her art.
This is why art is universal. It allows for all of us to have access to a piece of art that will allow us to have an experience that is unique to our individual perspective and that will allow us to make connections with other people all over the world. It allows us to let go of the desire to control the world around us and to instead let go of the desire for perfection and to focus instead on enjoying the journey. And while Florence might never have appreciated this perspective, the entire world can certainly appreciate it. After all, there are things that are truly beautiful out there, and the simple fact is that there is something beautiful about the natural beauty that surrounds us.
