The lecture series titled “Engaging with Visuals, Visual language an Art Appreciation” gave an insight to how an artist must be sensitive to Visual elements, observation with a sense of aesthetic, knowledge, imagination and vision. He elucidated upon the process of communication as a viewer, listener, reader and how one should develop over time as a creator of art. Following this he answered questions like What is Art? Can anything be called Art? Can anyone create it? Who decides if the Art is good or not? Can nature create Art? He elaborated the importance of the terms like repetition, rhythm, harmony, unity, variety and balance. He presented art works of a few artists which he had researched and concluded on having a ‘VISION OF LIFE’.
The lecture series at the Bengaluru School of Visual Arts gave the students an understanding to think deeper into their own expressions of art at the same time opened their minds to look at visuals and appreciate them in an efficient manner.
