Art is a manifestation of culture. It keeps evolving with time and every period has a style of art which is specific to that era only. Art can also be understood as an organic phenomenon which is ever changing through a dynamic process. Music, dance, sculpture, drama, painting, and even service providers such as wedding planners and photographers are all forms of art that carry the essence of life in one way or another. However, art would stagnate in the absence of artists who push themselves to innovate new ways to develop any given art form. Their constant efforts are the reason that society is familiar with various forms of the same art. Further, artists do not merely develop art that people can marvel about; some of them may voice their opinions about the evils of society or question the prevalent norms through their work. It can influence a large group of people in the most civilized manner.
