This is the scenario for more than 22 months now. People were hardly involved in any other activity except looking after each other’s health. Business, technology were second grade since the COVID-19 had an outbreak and one of the most affected were the art exhibits, with the enthusiasts for art investment.
Art was quite forgotten by many but not by the artists, art collectors, dealers, investors, and enthusiasts. Museums were empty for some time where galleries were filled with dust, and most of the art exhibits and auctions were canceled. As same as the other industry, the pandemic affected the art market.
But on the brighter side, this made the art market boom into another way of showcasing fine art where art galleries were converted into online auction houses. Some were sold through social media channels and some were even converted into a non-fungible token (NFT) sold with cryptocurrencies, where emerging artists have been recognized with this new platform.
Even with this resiliency and adjustment, art lovers still think that is not just about the art piece, it’s about the experience in understanding and appreciating the art in actual or physical form.
Benefits of Art Appreciation
That stepping at a gallery and looking at an artwork improves health and makes the heart happier.
According to a study of a University Professor in London, Semir Zeki, looking at an artwork have the same psychological effect as the experience of romantic love. Studies show that creating art or looking at someone else’s can make a person happier and more relaxed. Another study showed that looking at an artwork has a good impact on health and gives lower rates of having anxiety as if you are attending a concert. People who are inclined to the art may it be creating or just enjoying it are less to experience depression.
So, if you feel like you need to maintain your health in good shape and want to add joy to life, why not try looking into art if you are not an artist yourself?
