Introduction & Vision

Art is generally defined as being the expression or application of human creative skill and imagination typically in a visual form such as painting, calligraphy, or sculpture, producing works to be appreciated primarily for their beauty or emotional power.

However, art has a deeper psychological and spiritual impact which needs to be considered when one wants to understand the effects and implications of art on our lives.

Art comes at us from all angles and has so ever since man has been able to show an appreciation for that social culture. And art affects all aspects of our lives. Various forms of art are so significant because they not only underline and illustrate the uniqueness of each different culture and society but also at a deeper level indicate the similarity and unity of all races and human beings.

As Leo Tolstoy has expressed that ” art is a means of union among men, joining them together in the same feelings, and indispensable for the life and progress toward well-being of individuals and of humanity”.

Whenever we want to achieve any positive and creative task, the needed conditions should be provided. one of the most important and essential conditions is the environmental “space” where the creativity will happen, that is why 2A magazine has created a forum that focuses on architecture and art separately, in order to illustrate their interdependence and also to demonstrate the ways in which we can create a specific architectural space which helps in the growth and improvement of our artistic creativity and in getting the desired result.

The atmosphere in the architectural space is effective in presenting creativity in art and that is why visual arts are more obvious and done in the architectural space.

2A Magazine [as an International Hub for Architectural and Art Studies] realizes this necessity and thus continually organizes its activities in such a way that it encourages and promotes the further integration of the fields of art into our daily lives and societies, and as a responsible media, to facilitate and help in the expansion and growth of artistic creativity around the globe.
