Realism Versus Other Art

This post looks at the two different types of art: REALISM versus OTHER TYPES OF ART.

Many only like realism. The paintings and art they like have to look as much like a photograph as possible.
That’s fine; but know that art can evolve too, and artists that don’t do realism, can be just as talented.

Realism shows the world as it is.

The other types of art enhance reality for effect that often gives the art:

more drama
more impact
more emotion
more spontaneity
more color,
more charm,
more fun
more exaggeration for effect
more style,
more inspiration,
more spirituality, …

This enhanced art can also better explain or illustrate a story or concept. It can also lead to better compositions.

So open both your eyes and mind and see and enjoy all the many types of great art out there.
