It is very difficult to have a satisfactory definition for Art because of the diver’s interpretations, different cultural background of the artist, and the history behind the creation of an art work. This is to say that what is pleasing to the human senses of an individual may not be pleasing and seen as a piece of artwork by another individual, thus the old adage that says that, “Beauty lies in the eye of the beholder”. Art involves the use of human skills, creativity, and imagination to create aesthetic objects, events, experiences and our natural environment that can be shared with others. Some people may take art as a hobby whereas others may take art as a profession. Art maybe define as the creation of an object, which may not be done by nature itself, but the willing driven power, inspiration and imaginary perception by any individual, which may be visual to the development of an aesthetic environment, experience and object that can be shared with others. “During the Renaissance, the word Art emerges as a collective term encompassing Painting, Sculpture, and Architecture, a grouping given currency by the Italian artist and biographer Giorgio Vasari in the 16th century. Subsequently, this grouping was expanded to include Music and Poetry which became known in the 18th century as the 'Fine Arts' .“Art develops out of every situation thus the use of abundant materials in our environment to create unique artwork which brings a new definition to Fine Art ”.

El Anatsui’s “Rain Has No Father” Size: 13 x 19feet (2008) and Roxanne Swentzell’s “Mud Woman Roll On” Size 10 x 11feet (2011) are the two pieces of art that caught my attention because of the creativity, their ability to reuse abandoned materials such as bottle caps, copper, metal plates, straw, clay and above all the inspiration behind the art works.
