Art

This category and its content give you an insight in, what is probably one of the oldest human enterprises, a beautiful and intriguing world of art.

Since the first cave dwellers depicted scenes from everyday life and made roughly shaped statues, to this day, art has been evolving mainly because people had the urge to express themselves in a certain creative and productive way.

The result of that process, regardless of the media used in realization, is what we today perceive as art. Now, as broad term as art is, it demands a certain categorization, in order for us to be able to grasp the concepts and ideas it offers. Depending on the medium, time period, or even a stream of thought at the time of making, a certain piece of art belongs to a specific category.

The long established categories include music, theatre, literature, painting, sculpturing, architecture, dancing and recently two more were added to this traditional classification and they are the art of film and comics.

The following sub division of each category is defined by the term genre. Each individual category contains, or consists of, if you will, of a number of genres.

The art category on Documentary Tube consists of all of the above mentioned categories along with their genres and even more, because art itself is constantly evolving and someone is always there to document it. The coverage, material wise, goes from the printmaking artists from Chicago demonstrating various printing techniques and skills.

See the story of the street art of graffiti and the development of that particular art form across the globe, followed by the overview of the impact that Leonardo Da Vinci made to the world of art when he painted one of his most famous works-the Mona Lisa, and finally the life and work of the musical mastermind Ludwig Van Beethoven.

Explore the vast dimensions of art, sharpen your senses and develop a fine taste in various genres of a colorful range of categories. Perhaps you will discover the creative potential within you, and keep in mind that it is never too late for art.
