Did you know that art can be rebellious?

Many artists have expressed their discontent about different aspects of society through art. Even if they don’t use words, their message is perfectly conveyed in the form of paintings or sculptures. In places like the Moco Museum, they display pieces of art that give a radical twist to the perspective that many would use to address society’s problems. The idea of these artists is to highlight these problems so that more people are aware of them and can do something about them. Artists like Mark Rothko have used art to show people that there is a better way to do things. We are changing human beings and we need to constantly evolve to become better people and therefore a better society. It all comes down to understanding what the artist is trying to express and making it part of our lives.

Meet Amsterdam’s rebellious art

Few cities in the world have such a rich artistic legacy as Amsterdam. This city is the birthplace of renowned artists such as Vincent Van Gogh and Rembrandt. However, you can also find contemporary and modern art. This type of art differs from other trends because it embraces the issues that plague society at the time the artist made their art. The idea is to create an internal debate in people’s consciences in order to generate change. Although it is not possible to change everyone at once, it is possible to change one person at a time. Works like Mark Rothko seek to demonstrate that a greater state of well-being can be achieved. People who come across these creations realize that problems can be solved if everyone does their part.

Easily understandable art

If you try to appreciate a piece of art that is many years old, you will most likely not comprehend its purpose. However, this is not the case if you enjoy a contemporary or modern piece of art. Artists such as Andy Warhol, Yayoi Kusama, and Mark Rothko have proven that art can reach everyone. Paintings like Banksy’s “The Flower Thrower” make you recognize that violent struggle is not the way to reach agreements in society. Each artist uses different ways to convey their message. Each message is expressed to cause a stir and make people think again. The world has to change and become a better place. This is the premise that has led many artists to create the pieces of art they have created. And you, which piece of art has changed your way of thinking?
