Its really fascinating. The people who were able to be part of that movement and style. To me, its different than those gangs who tag themselves on a fence, this is an actual art. The beauty in the simple clashing of images and ideas. Their art is huge (seriously, it takes up buildings) but at the same time its kind of secret. Not really sure what it means. I guess thats a good thing. If we knew everything about everything it wouldn’t be fun.
I’ve started to appreciate art more. I didn’t use to get it. It was just a painting of some person. Who cares about Mona Lisa. I still kind of don’t. I guess her face isn’t mysterious enough for me. I don’t know why but I really like the Arnolfini Portrait. Its strange and nobody really knows exactly what its about. Its got symbolism about love and wealth, but there is controversy over some of the symbolism. There is a only one candle lit over their heads from the entire chandelier. So maybe she is dead. But other things point they are getting married. I don’t know whats its about. I can only decide for myself. Maybe its about nothing. Animation is pretty cool. I like seeing what Disney characters could have looked like.
I think it’d be fun to create a stencil and go paint it somewhere. Just to experiment with arts. You know. Gotta break away from MS paint eventually.
