What Does Your Art Say about YOU !?

Don't pay any attention to what they write about you. Just measure it in inches. - Andy Warhol

Art is a wonderful part of life as it allows us to express what we feel inside. Different works of art evoke different emotions in different people.

Edgar Degas was French artist famous for his work in painting, sculpting, printmaking, and drawing. Degas is considered an impressionist. The Impressionists painted the realities of the world around them using bright colors, concentrating primarily on the effects of light, and hoping to infuse their scenes with immediacy.

What kind of personality types do you think are drawn to this style? I would envision this in a traditional home with lots of dark wood furniture. I would see more conservative individuals expressing themselves with Degas' work.

Marc Chagall was born on July 7, 1887 in Vitebsk, Russia. painting styles are Expressionism and Cubism. In his paintings, he often painted violinists because he played the violin and also in memory of his uncle, who also played. He was also famous for his paintings of Russian-Jewish villages.

What personality types do you think are drawn to this type of work? I think fun, free spirited, unique people.

R. Kenton Wilson was born and raised in Los Angeles, California. Nelson paints landscapes, figures, and architecture bathed in light. His goal is to idealize the ordinary with the intention of engagement. This is currently my mom's favorite artist! I see people with this taste as feminine, intelligent, and quiet.

I think being able to express ourselves through music, art, and writing is just amazing:). What art(s) express your personality?
