Art is a category that refers to the visual arts, which cover the creation of images or objects in fields including painting, sculpture, printmaking, photography, and other visual media. Music, theatre, film, dance, and other performing arts, as well as literature, and other media such as interactive media are included in a broader definition of art or the arts. Until the 17th century, art referred to any skill or mastery and was not differentiated from crafts or sciences, but in modern usage the fine arts, where aesthetic considerations are paramount, are distinguished from acquired skills in general, and the decorative or applied arts.
A continent or just an island? Maybe both! Deserts, mountains, tropical rainforests, a few fertile plains: undoubtedly there are a lot of contrasts in this country, whose cities and population are concentrated along eastern and south-eastern coasts. Nonetheless its heart is what fascinates the most: red mountains and red sand are what the world knows better of Australia

‘The Brussels Legacy’, represents 10 years of work on a series of short stories, the appropriate recipes to accompany them, as well as the book’s full-colour illustrations which were painted on canvas and paper. ‘The Brussels Legacy’ is a satirical romp through European and American art history. Most textbooks on art are rather weighty, but in Delehanty’s stories, recipes, and illustrations, absolutely nothing is taken too seriously. The short stories are based upon the ...
From: The Spartan Comedian:‘Silence,’ bellowed Pissistrates. ‘I’ll interrogate this boy! Tell me, sugar, where is the Ancient Shield of Perseus, the one he used to kill the Medusa? Where does it lie?’
‘I didn’t take it,’ replied Zakaris calmly. ‘It wasn’t me.’
‘What did you say, boy?’
‘I swear I didn’t take it, Master.’
The other boys smirked and snorted. They whispered behind their hands. Zakaris was about to get the first beating of the year.

A long story written in the form of a scenario. It was set in the last period of Turkish Empire. The period in which appointing a state governor (Pasha) can easily come about by paying small amount of money to the Emperor’s men in Istanbul, without taking into consideration the characteristics and personality of the person who would they send to become ‘Pasha’ of Baghdad.
The story contains harsh scenes about the life of Baghdad’s inhabitants, and heavily relies on th...
Ali and Zahra are sitting next to each other.
Zahra: Would it be war?
Ali : I do not know, my father says when the Sultan sent his army to Baghdad it must be war, inside or outside the city .
Zahra : ( jokingly ) and what about you, are you going to join?
Ali : ( proudly , but sarcastically ) I'll be an officer in the cavalry battalion , with the gun "pistol" of three inches. I will occupy this neighborhood in the first day.. and every evening I would hold all guards...
An interesting adaptation of Molier’s most famous theatrical comedy. The playwright exposes the hypocrisy and corruption of the heaven-preachers and their power over the ordinary people in rich dialogue and intensive language.
Dorine: Mr. Tartuffe,
Tartuffe: (always watchful) What do you want?
Dorine: Why you hid the money in your pocket, if you were going to give them away to the needy people?
Tartuffe: You are intervening in people’s affairs.. God doesn’t like this, my daughter.
Dorine: Did you tell him ..the God.. that you took the money from my Master.. Mr. Orgon?
Tartuffe: Why did you come here? What do you want? … And ..... why your blouse is blatantly open .. revealing so much...
This play, predicted, over 30 years ago, what has exactly happened in Iraq in the past decade.
Most of the Lebanese publishers rejected publishing this play. In 1975, Alkhalil Press published it and sold more than 2000 copies in the first year. The play then staged in Beirut and Aleppo .. (and probably other countries.. as it’s hard to keep track of these things in the Arab world).
The play retrieves an image of the false past, with all its bogus ideas and the pres...
The play was written in an intensive language that has further enriched the beautifully flowing dialogue between the characters. The protagonist is the witty magician, who challenges the Emperor in his weird and sudden decision to establish justice in his country, only because he is bored of being oppressor for so long.
A one chapter novel. The events progress through 45 minutes only. Yet, it covers 30 years of the life of the female protagonist. There are 3 characters: a husband, a wife and her lover. All are going from the Lebanese town Bhemdoon towards Slayma (another Lebanese town), which they never reach. The time pressurizes each of them in different ways. But the three ways lead them all to a dramatic end of the conflict, which has been going on inside the speedy car, which in t...

Having lived as an experimental ‘artist-at-large’ for the past two decades, I took it upon myself to try my hand at representative oil painting this year. I moved to Florence, Italy, in December, 2012, because I wanted to see how renaissance painters created Beauty on canvas.
What I found was that far from being hyperrealist in the execution of their paintings, the Old Masters simply attempted to create Beauty in as realistic a way as was possible. Trompe l’oeil was a...

Earth Art requires huge work on land, sod, grass. It started in 1968 with Robert Morris utilizing a pile of dirt, and Robert Smithson who filled some boxes with rocks. Some projects demand enormous effort, for example carving the American presidential portraits in Mount Rushmore by Gustom Borglum, or wrapping the Australian coastline in 1969 with plastic and rope by Javacheff and Jeanne-Claude Christo (packed objects). Ephemeral patterns (art) in the snow by Dennis Oppen...
