For people who likes art, art is beautiful; it is a part of history, past experience and what an individual imagines. However, for the artist it is a part of his/her life, it is the perception the artist holds about events around and serves as a way to demonstrate history. Therefore, any piece of art was influenced by various factors. These factors range from economic, political, social and many more. Taking the factors discussed above, the following paper discusses the factors that influenced the style of Yayoi Kusama’s installations. Yayoi Kusama is a famous Japanese artist. Her works draw attention of thousands of people from around the world. Her artworks are developed across a broad range of media. The works were influenced by different factors including social conditions, period of time, personal life, but the major influences of her installations are personal influences at childhood and mental illness.
Appropriation is the act of borrowing and changing the meaning of cultural products, images, slogans and elements as well as reusing existing elements to create new works and meanings. Many artists believe that in borrowing existing images or elements of imagery, they are able to recreate the idea as it is now placed within a new concept. This essay will discuss how appropriation has been used in cultural and social contexts in order to create controversy and sell products, as well as be a form of expression.

Courage is said to be one of the most important characteristics a person can possess. We all admire the ones that put their jobs and lives on the line. They are not afraid to go against what the human society believes in, and some put their lives on the line to protect their loved ones’ back home. Robert F Kennedy stated in Profiles of Courage, that “Courage is the virtue that President Kennedy most admired. He sought out those people who had demonstrated in some way, whether it was on the battlefield or a baseball diamond, in a speech or fighting for a cause, that they had courage, that they would stand up, that they could be counted on (Kennedy ix).
There are few instances when a person is influenced by something to the extent of questioning their life. Something that is so powerful that it can create emotion in all of the people who experience it. Artists fight to create this something in order to connect people through it. However, in today’s culture where fads come and go it is often difficult to find such works of art. Cultivated through the things that make us human, great art always finds a way to make an impact. Through art we can experience love, anger, fear and many other emotions. With an understanding of the human condition, artists can create things that contain inspiration for all. Great art can speak to people of different generations with new relevance; it is timeless.
This photograph describes what Haiti looks like for miles. Destruction and devastation. The lost, worried family and the remains of the hurricane are the most prominent elements of this photograph. When looking at this picture the eye is drawn the the dirty, young girl. She expresses sadness and concern. Then the eyes meets the mother figure, thinking intensely, possibly about the person taking the picture or thinking about how to start over and repair what is lost. Lastly, the eye moves to the background, where a middle aged man is busy, as if he is trying to find a way to clean up or restore the unfixable damage. The clothes and belongs strung across the wooden frame symbolize life; once put together and neat, but now messy and imparable.

Graphic designer, Louise Fili, grew up in an Italian-American family in New Jersey and fell in love with the homeland of her parents at the age of 16 years. Since then, her passion for design, typography and Italian food has influenced her career as a designer. Fili went to study studio arts at Skidmore College but instead found graphic design, as she states in an interview “I went to Skidmore College where, if you couldn’t paint, they told you that you were graphically oriented.

Although it may not seem like it, issues concerning pollution in the ocean have a great impact on the lives of humans. The image’s creator most likely took this idea into thought when constructing the ad for the Surfrider foundation (figure 1). By making a connection between sushi and trash in a natural way that seems believable and not too bold, the image is able to appeal emotionally and logically to whoever views it. In addition, since most people are aware of of the pollution that takes place everyday on the planet, the image’s credibility is enhanced. With a unique strategy to draw the attention of a vast audience, the Surfrider Foundation uses the ad pictured above with the intent to educate the public about the effects of pollution, specifically in the ocean.
Visiting the San Francisco De Young museum is an interesting sight to anyone because the main attractions are structured artworks, paintings, sculptures, and photos that give visitors a feeling for the ancient time periods. The museum has two floors where visitors are allowed to access. The first floor is mainly interesting paintings and photographs. Not all of the paintings are understandable. Some of the interesting paintings are simple as two large white boards and a blue frame around the white boards hanging on the wall. This interesting artwork is an extreme abstract artwork. The second floor consists fancy ceramics and sculptures from ancient time of the Native Americans, Africa, and France. The second floor is always dim lighted, but each artwork is well placed in a transparent box and a light focused on the artwork. Walking down the hallway on the first floor along with these interesting water paintings relaxes viewers. Colorful ceramics, detail paintings, meaningful sculptures, interesting architectural wires, and fascinating photos. These
On top of being mobile and broadcasting programs at the front lines, the Fifth Army Mobile Radio Station was able to efficiently counter enemy programs as well. As explained earlier for the reason why it was created in the first place, being mobile rather than a stationary radio station really help to prevent front line troops to succumbing to enemy propaganda. The most prominent of these enemy propaganda radio stations in Italy would be Axis Sally, broadcasting transmissions that directed propaganda programs to the U.S. Fifth Army and Allied troops, trying to demoralize them.
Takashi Murakami is believed to be the founder of this art movement. She follows this movement very well, and her color choices help her as well. Her color palette is bright, but has earthy tones as well, indicative of Japanese Contemporary art. Her paintings are usually landscapes that have an overall smooth-looking texture. Her artwork flows together, and is cohesive. Contrast is found in some pieces, though most of her artwork follows a color system that consists of many shades of many colors, with a few pops of “surprising” colors. Briefly, her choices in color and texture create a balanced landscape art
Ukiyo-e paintings, also known as pictures of the floating world, were not merely decorative objects, but played a very important role in communicating fashions, customs, theatre and culture in general. They were served as a form of advertisement, like the illustrations on today’s magazines. Their creations was a fairly important and demanding affair, not merely an artist’s personal endeavor, but a complex undertaking involving many different people at different levels. In this paper I will argue that although all subjects of Ukiyo-e painting were tightly related to the Edo society at a certain time period, landscapes, which appeared at the last stage of Ukiyo-e’s boom, served as a totally different function to Edo society compared to the
