通过认识艺术家，我们可以了解他工作的情感方面。我们很容易理解图画和色彩的使用，以及艺术家作品的意义，因为我们知道艺术家的个性。使用对象、色调、颜色和信息是一些独特的视角，可以根据艺术家的个性来理解(Lewis & Lewis,2013)。
把自己与艺术有关，肯定会帮助个人满足基本的个人和心理需求。它是一个人与外部世界的美学接触，而外部世界支配着艺术的工作。通过艺术，人们学会客观化事物。艺术作品反映了艺术家所经历的内在情感或动荡。艺术有能力展示艺术家的思想、情绪、感觉和洞察力。当一个艺术家无法满足他在现实世界中的基本需求时，他们往往通过艺术来描述它。这给了他们一种满足感(Jeffri et al,2014)。
What work of art would you like to visit in your lifetime and why?
The piece of art which I would like to visit in lifetime would be that of Monalisa. The subject’s enigmatic smile and the gaze of her eyes has always been the subject of admiration by many of the artists. Through this painting Leonardo da Vinci had created a dynamic facial expression. It is said that Leonardo da Vinci had captured the subtle smile on the face of Monalisa with great precision. It would be an experience to see this painting in real as it would help me understand the concept of dynamic anatomy (Goulding, 2013).
What can we learn from knowing artists personally and discovering their unique perspectives?
By knowing artists personally we get to know the emotional side of his work. It is easy to comprehend the use of pictures and colors and the meaning of the artist’s work because the personality of the artist is known to us. The use of object, tone, color and the message are some of the unique perspectives which can be understood based on the personality of the artist (Lewis & Lewis, 2013).
Does art fulfill a basic human need?
Involving oneself with art would definitely help an individual to fulfill basic personal and psychological needs. It is one’s aesthetic encounter with the external world which dominates the work of art. Through art, one learns to objectify things. The work of art reflects the inner feelings or turbulences the artist is going through a given point of time. The art has the ability to exhibit the ideas, the moods, the feelings and the insight in the mind of the artist. When an artist id not able to fulfill his basic human needs in the real world, they tend to depict it through their art. This gives them a feeling of contentment (Jeffri et al, 2014).
