The process of artistic production has three phases: preproduction, production, and postproduction. The preproduction stage begins with an artist’s idea. The artist wants to convey a message to the audience through an artwork. During this stage, the idea is not fully formed and the artist explores different approaches. This stage may take some time to complete.
The artistic production process is a rigorous process. No other process has as many demands or variables as the artistic production process. The end result is a production that is both high-quality and timely. In addition to time, budget, and creativity, artistic productions must follow a rigorous process to ensure that they are delivered as promised.
The artists in this study used their artistic production as a strategy for living. They did not reflect reality through their art. Instead, they reinterpreted reality and infused their works with meaning and signs. They were expressing the conditions of ordinary consumers and the world around them. In addition, they discussed the relationship between art and life and how artists make art as a way to “be” in the world.
The artist’s aim in creating an artwork is to evoke an emotional response from the audience. Almost all artwork has a message. The artist hopes the audience will react emotionally to what they see and take something personal away from it. Whether it’s a reaction to a bad mood or an intense experience, the artist hopes that their work will inspire an emotional response.
Among the unique distinctions between humans is the ability to draw. Artistic production is a window into our perception, creativity, and thought. Despite its uniqueness, little is known about the actual process of artistic production. Empirical studies have focused on comparing the artistic abilities of different artists with different levels of training. The results of these studies have been compelling.
In the late 1980s, economic reform gave birth to a vibrant arts scene in China. While largely unrecognized, Chinese artists were often viewed as a threat by the political authorities. However, in 2009, the Chinese government decided to establish the Chinese Academy of Contemporary Arts. This academy is a branch of the Chinese National Academy of Arts, the country’s only national art research institute. The academy is supervised by the Publicity Department of the CPC Central Committee and functions as a semi-governmental agency.
Artists have a unique opportunity to create works of art if they have access to the proper funding. Without financial and social support, a person cannot achieve their artistic goals. Early experiences with art can inspire an individual to pursue a career as an artist. For example, an artist may become interested in dance when his or her parents encourage her to take part in dance performances.
The art director supervises the creative and technical aspects of an artistic production. Often, he or she is in charge of a piece’s visual appearance and the way it communicates with its audience. In addition to making decisions about how to use color and contrast features, the director also makes decisions about the use of motion and the artistic style of the piece.
