The work of artists and artisans is often the result of a creative process, where the artist may be inspired by their emotions, observations, or imagination.
The work of an artist can be divided into two general categories: fine art and applied art. Fine artists create original works of art (paintings, drawings, sculptures) that are intended to be appreciated primarily for their aesthetic value. Applied artists create objects that serve other purposes but may also have some aesthetic value (e.g., furniture).
An artist is someone who creates art. Artists can create a wide variety of art including paintings, drawings, photographs, sculptures, and other two-dimensional or three-dimensional art.
The word “art” comes from the Latin “ars”, which means skill. In modern English, the word usually refers to the visual arts such as painting or sculpture.
