  1. Collage

    Collage is a technique of an art production, primarily used in the visual arts, where the artwork is made from an assemblage of different forms, thus creating a new whole. A collage may sometimes include newspaper clippings, ribbons, bits of colored or handmade papers, portions of other artwork or texts, photographs and other found objects, glued to a piece of paper or canvas. The origins of collage can be traced back hundreds of years, but this technique made a dramatic reappearance in the early 20th century as an art form of novelty. The term collage derives from the French "coller" meaning "glue". This term was coined by both Georges Braque and Pablo Picasso in the beginning of the 20th century when collage became a distinctive part of modern art.

Contemporary art Aesthetics as the basis of art has gone into the background. In the foreground is the abstract, unconscious philosophy of artists. Creative people create their creations not for people, but for themselves. That is why there is a gap between the perceptions of the artist and the viewer. People visiting modern exhibitions cannot understand what the author wanted to say, many write their humiliating notes with explanations about what this work is like. For example: a layman looks at work, reading a note with an annotation, and says: “ahh, is that a flower?” (Got up in a strange pose to see a flower, and the second repeats after her Only with this pose they see a flower). Answering her: Yes, I would never have guessed in my life. And the offended author of the work tells them: Yes, you do not understand anything in art, I am a genius. And cries bitterly. Even many professional art historians do not fully understand many artists, they only build some personal assumptions. And not all artists sometimes understand what they have created. The layman asks the artist: and what is depicted here. The author replies: “I don’t know, yes, yes.” 7. Violence in creativity, harmlessly reduces the world's population. 8. Creativity is the interference of the light of feelings. Light diffraction of emotions passed through the prism of the soul. Someone thereby creates the effect of transformation or distortion of the imagination, the uglier the thinking of people, the more terrible their imagination. Which resembles a metal constructor of lovers, a children's application of imitation. Whereas ingenious in insight. 9. Creativity is hardcore originality. 10. Genius does as no one thinks to do. He is looking for something completely new where no one will seek. He is not looking for soil for inspiration, he creates it with his bold steps, the soles of the sneakers of which glow gently with white, neon lights. In his own way, he creates a path for the next generation. Becoming the light at the end that illuminates this path. Patiently waiting for his followers on the other side.
