Be they modern painting as “Fire Pond” by Kachina Anastasia, or “Baobab” by Vica Morvay, man’s love for painting can be said to be as old as the history of man itself. Right from the use of cave paintings; studied by scientist to detect how the early men planned activities such as hunting, up to the interior decoration, paintings have always been useful to man. In addition, the discovery of hundreds of paintings in Europe, Africa and Australia shows clearly that the love for painting isn’t a recent creation. Man has used paintings for many reasons such as decoration or even to express one’s sensuality (as in the case of Nude Paintings); however the overall purpose of art paintings has been to convey a message.
