    For millennia, artists have poured their souls into their work, fashioning incredible (or sometimes atrocious) pieces that leave the audience stunned and breathless.

    By definition, Contemporary Art is the “art of the present day and relatively recent past and of an innovatory or avant-garde nature.” The art itself leaves a broad variety of artistic creations, there is no definite manifesto to follow, nor any specific technique that entails the participation in the Contemporary art “movement” because there is essentially no

    Art on social media is currently really popular and widely spread. Scrolling through Instagram — the most used in terms of artistic sharing — you can find thousands of different art accounts, every single one of them with their own peculiar style. However, there’s something particularly interesting about this social media artistic phenomenon: it changed and evolved

    Tumblr is infamous for taking things with meaning and importance and turning them in to nothing more than an aesthetic. They did that with feminism, and they have done it with the art hoe movement. I’ve never really been a huge fan of Tumblr, but every so often, I’ll open up the app and do

    Recently, the “Google Arts and Culture” application released a new feature. Now, the ability to find real portraits through your selfies can be found within the app. The portraits revealed are a whimsical and satisfyingly Instagrammable result.

    Memes are a common ground for young people everywhere. Taking place mostly on the internet, memes and the obscure humor of the millennial generation have created a fun way for us to relate to one another. With multiple memes being shared every month of the year, it is nearly impossible to count exactly how many

    I wrote this poem after getting my heart broken. It made me evaluate that many people cannot describe love or their perception of love is different. I then learned that maybe I don’t even know what love is. Love, it can be one of the most beautiful things……. It can also be one of the

    In Kansas City’s Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, painting Conservator Mary Schafer discovered a dead grasshopper in Vincent Van Gogh’s 1889 painting “Olive Trees”. While examining the painting, Schafer discovered what at first appeared to be a leaf, but upon further inspection turned out to be a dead grasshopper. The dead grasshopper revealed the painting’s context,

    Mental illnesses affect millions of people from all over the world, regardless of their gender, race, religion, etc. It is estimated that 20% of teenagers aged 13 to 18 suffer from mental health conditions and that 75% of young people with mental illnesses are not receiving proper treatment.

    Although, for the past years, it has been increasingly accepted by the general public and artists of other art movements, it is sometimes argued whether or not street art should be considered real art. I am of the opinion that it is equally as valuable and worth considering as other art forms. Street art has

    In many of the most popular renaissance art pieces – typically created from a male-perspective – there is an unrealistic view of the female body. The obsession with the female figure has continued to grow, no thanks to the provocative depiction of women in art, films and music. This so-called “work of art” we refer

    Perhaps you’ve decided to start writing poems, songs, articles, anything. I haven’t been writing for decades, but I’ve realized a few things about it: it is always better if you’ve experienced or if you know a lot about what you’re writing. As I wrote my first song, I was afraid to expose my feelings, so
