Description Making use of the senses and the element of emotion, art encompasses the expression through music, literature, film, paintings, and more. Aesthetics as a branch of philosophy deals with the nature of beauty and art, including the appreciation of the disciplines and their relationship with human nature. Aesthetics is, in a phrase, ways of seeing and perceiving the world.Art and aesthetics merge at the visual arts, where the creator or artist interprets an aesthetic which is then decoded by the viewer in individualistic terms unique to each and with critical views towards the original intent or meaning.This book explores the scope of street art as an often subversive statement made in public places. The use of art in the context of ordinary daily venues can be seen through graffiti, flash mobs, yarn bombing, street installations, poster art, murals, and more.
