Christian Art

     Christian art well I think this art is important to me especially because I am a Catholic person, but then I'm a little bit ashamed because I am a catholic person but I don't have enough background about the christian art. But I'm glad that my classmates already gave me some ideas on what is christian art all about. Well christian art is sacred because it portrays the Christianity, this art shows the life of Jesus. Christian art survives from dates near the origins of Christianity. The oldest surviving Christian paintings are from the Megiddo, dated to around the year 70, and the oldest Christian sculptures are from sarcophagi or sarcophagus. In this art they also tackled about the Cathedrals, Churches and Basilicas when see them you will really be amazed because of their architectures, the arts in ceiling, walls, windows door, altars etc. they are really relaxing when you want them because you can feel the presence of God.
      This era also tackled about the four evangelist: Saint Luke, Saint Mark, Saint Matthew, and Saint john. St. Luke symbolizes Bull, St. Mark symbolizes Lion, St. Matthew symbolizes Man while St. John symbolizes Eagle. They also stated here the mother of Constantine, "Helena." Gothic art is also part of Christian art, Chartres is the best preserve Gothic architecture. Chartres  has 3 elements: the Portals, three horizontal division and triangular. Well, I think this era has an influence on my future artworks and design because it gives me idea on how to create a beautiful artwork and I think I can use this era as one of my inspirations.

Ancient and Classical arts

   Ancient art and Classical art 
   Ancient art. This art is all about China, India, Mesopotamia, Persia, Egypt, Greece and Rome. This art is still remembered today. In this era we have the Paleolithic, Mesolithic and Neolithic. Time goes by the arts on that time are evolving. And I think this era is very treasured because in this age the creativity of a person is already stated here they don't have intention in doing art but as a result on what they are doing it resulted as an art.  Classical art in this time the people already discovered on how to use shapes in arts. Mostly arts of this era are real, they make art on what are they doing in their daily life.

     Well I believe that both of this art has any influence even a bit in my life. But then to be honest I'm not interested in the history of art but when my classmates started to introduce where the art came from, I felt like I want to be back in that era. and besides I want to create an art that is all about that era. Both of this periods use human as their subject matter. Ancient arts use cave paintings while the other one is more on sculptures. Yes, of course it's easy to create art of this two era but, it's hard to create an sculpture and a cave painting it's easy to use your imagination to create your art of this two periods but if you study on how to create them you can do this without any difficulties.
