Not all art can last a lifetime. Depending upon the style, material, design, or method of an artist, a piece might stay forever. With the interest and passion towards all forms of art, it is always best to know how to create one that has a lasting impact to people of all ages. It is all artists’ dream to provide something that remain in people’s heart despite the test of time.
Experimentation with some untested materials
Untested materials have been proven to be detrimental to the longevity of an artwork. One famous example is JMW Turner. As an artist, he was able to produce a number of artworks. Because of his endeavor to try and create new products, he had made several experiments that had deteriorated his oil paintings in a short span of time.
Despite that, all his works are still held in great esteem. As a matter of fact, authorized organizations still exhibit his creations. No doubt, lovers of art would embrace a piece regardless of its present condition. The acceptance from them is similar to the way that people accept antiques and warts.
Use the highest quality of materials
Have you ever tried using plastics while doing your artwork? How’s your experience? Using such materials can prolong the life of your creation. However, do not experiment with the mixes. Always follow instructions to avoid cracks and other potential issues along the way.
No matter how you stick to the recommended amount, there is no guarantee that your art would stay for a lifetime. But you would have the peace of mind that it would remain in a decade or two. This might be enough for you to achieve fame.
For more information, enroll in continuing professional education or attend seminars by a world-renowned artist. All of these would help you create something that stays for years.
