We celebrated International Artist Day on October 25th. As a creative human expression, art contains countless things. It depicts the beauty or painful reality of life. It records history, revolution, rebellion, and sometimes is a means to escape them. You will not find any history or culture without art. This day celebrates all forms of art-painting, sculpture, photography, architecture, music, etc. Through this celebration, we expressed our respect for the passion and creativity of all artists.
History of International Artist Day
Artists work hard to create their works. They have made the world beautiful. Most artists use many different media. Not only that, but the term artist also includes painters, photographers, sculptors, musicians, dancers, writers, actors, digital artists, etc. When a person is born with creative talent, this creativity will flow to many different areas. For example, Picasso was a painter, sculptor, potter, poet, and playwright.
Art appeared long before written works. Since ancient times, art has been conveying ideas and recording important events. Art provides a connection with the past. Artists record our history, indelible. They also dig the truth. Through their arts, they depict history and traditions. Artists have a unique way to connect with people around them. In a world full of bad news, one of their most important roles is to provide information of hope.
