With a whopping 605 million views from all around the corners of the world, there is nothing that can deny the stardom and popularity of such music video. Already been declared as the second most viewed music video of all time, following Gangnam Style which is also performed by the same artist, it is quite clear why it has easily secured the number one spot for the most famous music video of 2013.

But putting reality in perspective, such situation can only be viewed as a one-in-a-million miracle.

Second on the list is Miley Cyrus with her new hit single Wrecking Ball. The former Hannah Montana star and Disney princess has truly become a matured lady with the release of this particular music video.

However, with the release of the first four videos above, this very lovely and hip song fell drastically in terms of views.  Nevertheless, it has still remained popular during the whole course of the season.

Fun Movie Facts-The Three Highest Grossing Films Of 2013

Just like the music industry, the movie sector also had a very busy and productive year in 2013. With so much high quality movies being produced by various production companies, making a list of the best movies for this year is somewhat quite difficult to handle. But because we are now down to the very last month of such year and 2014 is moving closer and closer to our calendars, it would not be fair not to recognize the most successful and highest grossing films in our present year. So without further delays and additional introductions, here are the three high quality movies that surely came on top in 2013.

The third installation of Marvel’s Iron Man got the number one position in this year’s highest grossing film lists. With a 200 million dollar budget movie converted into a 1.2 billion dollar box office hit, there is surely nothing that can outlast this particular Hollywood production in this year’s highest grossing catalogue. With the acting prowess of Robert Downey Jr. taking on the role of Tony Starks, the high ego billionaire character who had created the Iron Man suits, reenacting a very popular comic series and making it into a movie is probably one of the best moves Marvel have ever done. With the big success gained by such movie within this year, anyone could safely assume that the discussion of another Iron Man installment is on its way.

The next Hollywood movie that followed Iron Man 3 in the highest grossing movie department is Despicable Me 2. With this animated movie gaining 781 million dollars from ticket sales all over the world, it is quite a testament that animated movies today are becoming more of a choice by many people. Part of the reason why Despicable Me 2 has its big success is because it was created to be friendly and amusing for children and it has the composition to adore adults in the same process. In much simpler sense, this particular animated movie was built for all ages to enjoy and with that, it has surely traveled a long way. From being 76 million dollar project turning into a more or less 800 million dollar hit, Illumination Entertainment has surely gained way more than what they are expecting.

Liongate’s Hunger Games 2: Catching Fire is the third highest grosser in this particular year. With a gross of 360 million dollars and is still actively counting up as it has still been showing in various theaters in other countries, this book based movie masterpiece has surely caught up in the standings. Considering the fact that this movie just got recently released into the movie theaters, it is quite remarkable to know that it has achieved a very impressive feat.

Basing on the numbers of each given movie above, it is quite easy to depict that Iron Man 3 will likely hold the first position until the end of 2013 comes. But in terms of the second and third position, there might still be a chance for Hunger Games 2 to catch up with the second installation of Despicable Me since it has still been actively shown in many movie houses all over the globe.

Baby Its Cold Outside is another example of a Christmas song that is not really suited for such special occasion. In comparison to the first song being given above, this particular soundtrack has more sense on its lyrics and its formation is quite impressive. However, the meaning behind such music is divided into two different parts. While it may give an impression of an ongoing Christmas love, there are instances wherein some specific parts of this certain music are portraying inadequate mature scenes.

Different uses of Abstract Paintings
A beautifully made painting can impact someone in many different ways. Either they are amazed by the creativity, inspired by the level of artistry or feel envious because they think that whatever they do, they just cannot create anything close enough to what they see. Because of this discouraging feeling, many have given up their hopes and dreams of harnessing their artistic talent.
In all honesty, all of us have the talent to create a beautiful painting. We only need to have the determination to practice every day combined with the proper knowledge in order to succeed in making our own art. Although not all of us have the ability to produce a copied image of any given subject, we are free to use our own imagination to produce an art that is unique in the eyes of others. This kind of concept gave way to the rise of abstract painting and it has been made for all of us to feel free.
Like any other Chinese paintings, abstract paintings are also used as decorative materials posted on walls of houses, offices and buildings. Although the nature of its concept is far different from other painting styles which follow certain disciplines that need to be considered, the level of beauty and artistry found on abstract paintings and others are almost the same.
Aside from being decorative materials, abstract paintings also serve as an inspiration for young and aspiring painters. Having a non-objective type of approach, the abstract method of painting has greatly encouraged many individuals to try and improve their artistic skills. Using this method is a good way to familiarize an individual’s skill when it comes to drawing and painting. There are instances when some schools with art classes encourage their students to create some abstract paintings on their own in order to broaden their idea on artistry as well as to properly express their emotions and feeling through their art work.
Abstract paintings are also used to convey a story or a message. As much as every painting style has this kind of ability, various painters usually use the abstract method to entice the viewers of abstract paintings to think more out of the box. With the combination of different shapes, various colors and a number of different lines, viewers will really be challenged to decode the true meaning behind abstract paintings.
As of today, there still are people who believe that the abstract method should not be considered as art. But looking at the impact that it has made to many people, abstract painting has done more than enough to qualify as a part of human artistry.

Understanding Abstract Art

Friday, July 5th, 2013

Understanding Abstract Art

Abstract arts use evident language or form, line and color to make an artwork which can stay with a degree of sovereignty from visual orientations within the world. Abstract art, non-objective art, and non-formal art are closely connected terms. Abstraction indicates a departure from reality in depiction of images in art. This departure from correct illustration will be solely slight, partial or it will be complete.

Abstraction exists on a time. Design that takes liberties and altering colors and types in ways that can be seen is also called as partly abstract. Total abstraction bears no outline of anything that is recognizable. In geometric abstraction for example, one is not likely to seek out references to realistic entities. Both geometric abstraction and lyrical abstraction are usually completely abstract. Among the terribly various art actions that symbolize limited abstraction would be as an example artistic movement within which color is prominently and purposely altered.

If you wish to completely appreciate the degree of design, it is vital to grasp the artist’s reasoning behind it. Part of the wonder of art is that, we have the tendency as a viewer to bring our own means of association and assign our own context primarily base upon our memories, personalities and life experiences in arts. With this, we don’t get to recognize precisely what the design is meant to be or to feel a deep appreciation for it.

On the opposite hand, knowing the artist’s thoughts and methods in making an explicit work of art adds an extra layer of meaning to every individual in the interpretations. It will take slightly an additional legwork. However, it will be worth the effort to scan slightly and considering the artist’s intention behind making the art. This may help you deepen your quest in perceiving it.

All art is made at time intervals and with explicit context. Artists, like their art, are influence by the age during which they’re operating. They’re influenced by what’s happening in their society, politics, and therefore their streams of artistic thoughts are mixed with everyday culture and their own daily lives. All of those factors leave impressions on the artist’s mind, wittingly or not, and successively confirm the shape and direction of the design.

So the next time you inspects an abstract painting, or any quite “modern art,” do not begin by finding out some recognizable objects from your world. Instead, attempt to enter the planet that the creative person created. Relax and let your eyes leisurely explore over the art’s surface. Let your mind and heart be one with its colors, textures and shapes. Let yourself be drawn into the action of its lines, the illusion of its areas and the mood of its atmosphere.

Essence of Contemporary Art

Essence of Contemporary Art
We are living in an era where people are getting busy. But due to the advancement of science and technology, we are provided by the most conventional ways of having our tasks done. In the world of art, science and technology has contributed too much in giving the artists of the modern world the tools that can help in creating works of art that will make them express their selves with a lot more profundity and sensuality. Artists are now given the media where one can actually create an art piece that enables them to make the viewers see what the artists feel ad think. These artworks are now known to be the contemporary art.
The Contemporary art is actually new in the art industry. There is no idea so far of how far will it go and how much it will change over time. But it has assured one thing though; it will probably be popular for the modern thinkers and will be placed surely among the traditional art forms in the future.
Given that the contemporary art bears a religious as well as the political influences, the western world actually valued this at form. These influences of the political and the religious views may mostly not be seen on the physical of the artworks, they are felt by both artists and art appreciators.
Contemporary artworks show a grave feeling of the anger, frustration as well as the despair in every piece lying behind with its subtleness. There is no need for vulgar words to be painted on its canvass to enable the viewers see what the artists wants to convey.
There is a possibility that some of the contemporary arts do not go well with the designs used in the traditional artworks due to the innovativeness of the designs and the modernized concepts it portrays. However, if you just try to observe closely, contemporary art still reflects the traditional art evolution from centuries and centuries ago. But, of course, there is no way that you may still be able to see it as one of the old criteria of art.
Thought it is common saying that beauty is in the eyes of the beholder, but for the world of art, beauty of a masterpiece will not be seen in the eyes of who ever looks at the piece, rather it is expressed on how the minds of the viewers sees it. Physical beauty is no longer the greatest asset of art, but the feeling that it creates to the viewer while looking at it.
