ARTS AS A UNIVERSAL LANGUAGE

“Después de todo, la pintura se ha de hacer tal como uno es”
Juan gris


The art is not only a kind of hobby but a way to exhibit thoughts, beliefs and an emotional condition. A famous way to demonstrate this human complexity, is painting. Most of the people in the world look for painters, with whom they can identify themselves.

Also who has the habit ofreading histories, novels, poems, etc, can also feel identified with individuals who speak for them, perhaps by having the same life history or the same feelings.

In order not to hide the feelings, people write stories, poems, paint, and make other works.

For those reasons, the main topic of this essay is the arts as the resemblance of mind and feelings.

In the painting, there are manyimportant works which for some people are considered like strange or crazy paintings but by analyzing them, one can find the author’s real intentions.

It is important to say that another great influence for painters besides feelings is the different art movements like impressionism, expressionism, realism, and many others.

According to the different artistic movements and the social situations,painters were influenced to create works; an example of this, is Édouard Manet who was an impressionism movement’s precursor. One of his most important works was “Le déjeuner sur l'herbe” which is a kind of statement in favor of individual freedom. In view of the scandal that caused the naked woman in that painting, the author’s thoughts about freedom were illustrate.

As the before mentioned,there were countless amazing painters who expressed their feelings. Some of them are: Henri Matisse, Roy Lichtenstein, Pablo Picasso, Marc Chagall, Francis Bacon, Grant Wood, Leonardo da Vinci, among others.

Henri Matisse known as the color’s father (as he believed life was color), through his work called “La danza” wanted to transmit joy, show up feelings of emotional liberation and hedonism. Tothis colorful work, was given a symbolic interpretation where the red bodies, symbolizing life, background represents the sky and the color green means the nature.

In the same way, Pablo Picasso who created a famous painting named “Masacre en Corea”, motivated by his indignation towards the power in the Occident, as there were a big dehumanization and violence among Korean civilians, hecreated a painting where he could express all his impotence and disapproval to war.

And as these three great artists (Édouard Manet, Henri Matisse, Pablo Picasso), we can highlight the world's most famous painting “La Gioconda” in Spanish or better known as “Mona Lisa” in Italian. Nowadays it is still a mystery in which the world has tried to decode Da Vinci’s feelings and thoughts. To this painting,people have assigned several hypotheses such as Leonardos’ female version,   the wife of the socially prominent Francesco Del Giocondo, or a portrait of a certain Florentine lady who Leonardo met.  

Regardless of every point of view about this enigmatic woman, this painting continues being a master piece worldwide. In this one, there is no a real version, however the mystery that this paintingproduces is what make it famous and attractive.

As many artists, through the art of painting, have shown us their feelings and experiences, everyone can express what they think, what they live, or their emotional situation. It is not necessary to be famous to demonstrate with arts the feelings; the only necessary thing is to have passion or an idea to create a master piece.

With painting,many professionals such as psychologists read the emotional state in which people are, an example of this occurs with children. Many children do not verbalize their feelings or what they think and that is why, for them, to make a drawing or coloring is very important.

When the child’s artwork is a dramatic drawing, such as a fight or blood, a psychologist can take his work as a situation...
