The Beauty of Art: Why We Need Art to Enrich Our Lives and Society

Have you ever felt an indescribable beauty when admiring a painting or a song? Have you ever experienced joy beyond yourself when creating a piece of art? Have you ever wondered why art is so important to us?

When we talk about art (here we mainly discuss visual art), most people think that it is a luxury or a decoration, not a necessity in life. In fact, art plays a very important role in our lives, and it is closely related to social development and construction. Because art is our spiritual food, and also our spiritual crystallization. Art makes us broaden our horizons, approach truth, goodness, and beauty, and generate positive energy. In social development, this is very important.

Yes, art gives us visual beauty and makes us feel the beauty of life. This beauty can turn into passion, this beauty can fill our spiritual emptiness. As Pan Tianshou said: “Beauty has the passion of fire; the calmness of mind; the cleverness of ice and snow; the law of freedom; the sincerity of infinity; the goodwill of extremity; the realm of bliss.”

The beauty of art is pure and sublime. It is not limited by time, place, or culture. It can transcend all obstacles and communicate with the human soul. It can inspire our imagination, creativity, critical thinking, and expression. It can make us understand ourselves better and also understand others better. It can make us respect diversity more, and also pursue harmony more.

Art is not a luxury, but a necessity. It is an indispensable part of our lives. Let’s discover, appreciate, create and share the beauty of art together!
