Art is something that completely changes the life of the individual. It gives the wings of creativity to an artist making fly high in his creations, moods and tones, like cubism or impressionism, abstract or realism. The most interesting fact about artist is that they did not have any kind of formal training. They just have a rough idea of the basic elements of art. The real meaning of imagination lies in the certain art elements. Let us understand these elements and first know what they are:
Shape: it is a depiction of an object or a concept as a collection of lines and dots. There are two dimensions of shape: length and width. It is illustrated within an area that is indicated by poles apart tangents like Space, Color, Form, Value and Texture. Shapes are outlined when multiple lines are linked with a definite border. They can be squares, ovals or any other type of geometrical figure.
Line: It is a uninterrupted mark made with a Moving Dot or a Moving Point. Different feelings, moods and anything abstract or anything abstract, all these dimensions can be expressed as a line. A horizontal line depicts stillness and peace; A Vertical Line signifies an organized feeling and Diagonal Lines generate movements. Using these lines, several artists try to convey their message.
Space: The creation of a visual point of view that gives the false impression of depth is another element of art known as space. An appropriate use of space is an art in itself. It can be categorized as Positive and Negative. Positive Space is one that is taken by an object while Negative Space is one that is between two objects. The best way of employing both the spaces types affects the entirety of the artist’s composition. Moreover, depending upon the space, it can be either 2D or 3D as it helps in giving illusions of distances and depths on a flat surface.
Value: The art element depicts the intensities of color or tones. It comprises of Mid Tones, High Lights or even Shadows in any piece of art. The modifications in the amount of light absorbed or reflected, base color and the insight of form in a painting. These all are co-efficient of value.
Texture: It is either a real or a opinion of an onlooker. The surface quality best describes its texture.
Form: the 3D matching part of shape is a constituent of art known as Form. It describes mass and volume and can be analyzed in angles. This is applicable in the case of a small sculpture or a ball. Fundamentally, form is of two types: Real and Illusionary. There are three dimensions of forms, i.e. Height, Width and Length.
