Arts and Aesthetics
John Keats, the famous Romantic poet says, “A thing of a
beauty is joy for ever….” All the beautiful things in this world are either
created by God or artists. All the beautiful structures you see such as The Taj
Mahal, Redfort, Hagia Spohia, Petra, Pyramids in Egypt, the Colosseum in Italy,
Eiffel Tower, etc. are marvelous creations of artists only. ‘All things bright
and beautiful’ are created by artists.
If art and aesthetic were absent, the world would be dull,
bland and insipid place. There were no ‘Harry Potter’ series to be read and
enjoyed by millions of reading enthusiasts. All the inspiring movies we see
that keep our eyes glued to the screen, would not materialize if the artists
would not imagine, direct and enact them.
All the beautiful paintings such as Mona Lisa, The Last
Supper, Starry Night, The Creation of Adam, Sleeping Beauty, etc would not come
out of nothingness if the artists such as Leonardo Da Vinci, Vincent van Gogh,
etc. would not have dared to colour them out of the vibrant colours of their
imagination through perseverance and dedication.
Arts and aesthetics is the spice of life; they
are the fragrance of existence. We are lucky that we have so many masterpieces
of art bequeathed to us by the maestros of all time. What they created no one
could ever copy them. It is true art is the divine language of God spoken to
mankind through the works of artists.
