PRESENTATION OF THE COLLEGE OF VISUAL ARTS

 

At the College of Visual Arts we are committed to fine arts. We evaluate the work of art by considering the basic elements of fine arts, the aesthetics of an art work, its positive humanistic address, by the expression and communication power of its address, the power of its creative charge of unlimited duration etc.

We believe that artistic creation does not merely imitate, and that the work of art is the implementation of the special in the possible. As such, it represents the surplus of human creativity and experience, which we share in the spiritual field.

Images as the alma mater of all art, do not only mirror an event or a unique new idea, processed in a special medium, we understand it as an image of aesthetic value, intended for spiritual and cultural enjoyment, perception and expression, as well as contemplation.
