Art & Culture with 37 full color images is released by author Daniel Silver.
The arts, when executed well, are more than a simple celebration of life and a reflection of experience. Art helps civilize people, and changes not only how we view ourselves but also our attitudes toward others. The author urges people to rally to take back their culture to become real citizens, fully engaged in the community, and not just consumers of entertainment that cheapens human life. He says true culture reflects values that boost human life, such as a love of humanity, empathy, kindness, humility, compassion, honesty, faith and a sense of humor.
Art & Culture describes the effects of violence seen on television and in movies, which studies show can harm mental health, and lambasts the quality of news reporting in the United States, guiding readers to alternative sources of information so they can be more informed as citizens. The book pairs advice to better serve each other with original oil paintings by the author. In the end, true culture which will provide a beacon to humanity must be cultivated. As the author writes, “Culture is a celebration of the love we have for each other – a love that goes beyond immediate family and friends and into the community at large. Entertainment is more about a fun time with no responsibilities.”
Author Daniel Silver taught himself how to draw and paint at night while his wife, a night nurse, was on the job. Both enjoyed going to museums but didn’t find much that reflected their taste in contemporary art, so they set out to create their own. Many images from the book are available as posters by visiting revlis.imagekind.com/store.
