Yellow

Just some fun facts....
The word "yellow" comes from the Old English geolu, or geolwe which derived from the Proto-Germanic word gelwaz. According to the Oxford English Dictionary, the oldest known use of this word in English is from The Epinal Glossary in the year 700.

In the English language, yellow has traditionally been associated with jaundice and cowardice. Yellow is associated with the word "caution" and is the second light on stop lights. The color is associated with aging as well, for both people and objects (e.g. "yellowed" paper). Ethnographically, the term "yellow" has been used as a slang term for both Asians ("yellow peril") and, in the early 20th century, light-skinned African-Americans (High yellow).

"Yellow" ("giallo"), in Italy, refers to crime stories, both fictional and real. This association began in about 1930, when the first series of crime novels published in Italy had yellow covers. The term "yellow movie" (黃色電影) can refer to films of pornographic nature in Chinese culture, and is analogous to the English "blue movie". Lastly, it is associated with sensational journalistic practices, or yellow journalism, and resistance to militant trade unions.

Zenga
is a style of Japanese calligraphy and painting, done in ink.

In many instances, both calligraphy and image will be in the same piece. The calligraphy denotes a poem, or saying, that teaches some element of the true path of Zen. The brush painting is characteristically simple, bold and abstract.

Though Zen Buddhism had arrived in Japan at the end of the 14th-century, Zenga (as here described) didn't come into its own until the beginning of the Edo period in 1600. In keeping with individual paths to enlightenment, nearly any subject matter can lend (and has lent) itself to Zenga. Everything from a cat, to a bamboo shoot, to a man defecating in a field has been used to illustrate a particular point - although enso (Zen circles), sticks and Mt. Fuji are the most common elements.

Basse-taille

Basse-taille (baiss-taille) is an enamelling technique in which the artist creates a low-relief pattern in metal, usually silver or gold, by engraving or chasing. The entire pattern is created in such a way that its highest point is lower than the surrounding metal. A translucent enamel is then applied to the metal, allowing light to reflect from the relief and creating an artistic effect.

Expressionism

Expressionism was a modernist movement, initially in poetry and painting, originating in Germany at the beginning of the 20th century. Its typical trait is to present the world solely from a subjective perspective, distorting it radically for emotional effect in order to evoke moods or ideas. Expressionist artists sought to express meaning or emotional experience rather than physical reality.

Expressionism was developed as an avant-garde style before the First World War. It remained popular during the Weimar Republic, particularly in Berlin. The style extended to a wide range of the arts, including painting, literature, theatre, dance, film, architecture and music.

The term is sometimes suggestive of emotional angst. In a general sense, painters such as Matthias Grünewald and El Greco are sometimes termed expressionist, though in practice the term is applied mainly to 20th-century works. The Expressionist emphasis on individual perspective has been characterized as a reaction to positivism and other artistic styles such as naturalism and impressionism.

Fourth Dimension

Refer to time as another dimension, along with length, width, and depth.
This idea of time as a fourth dimension is usually attributed to the
"Theory of Special Relativity" proposed in 1905 by the German physicist
Albert Einstein (1879-1955). However, the idea that time is a dimension
goes back to the nineteenth century, as we see in the novel The Time Machine
(1895) by British author H.G. Wells (1866-1946), wherein a scientist
invents a machine that lets him travel to different eras, including the
future. The Cubists may not have known about Einstein's theory, but were
aware of the popular idea of time travel. They also understood
Non-Euclidean geometry, which the artists Albert Gleizes and Jean
Metzinger discussed in their book Cubism (1912). There they mention the German
mathematician Georg Riemann (1826-1866) who developed the hypercube.


Simultaneity in Cubism was one way to illustrate the artists' understanding of the
Fourth Dimension. In this sense, the Fourth Dimension concerns how two
kinds of perception work together as we interact with objects or people
in space. That is, to know things in real time, we must bring our
memories from past time into the present. For example, when we sit down,
we don't look at the chair as we lower ourselves on to it. We assume
the chair will still be there when our bottoms hit the seat.


Another definition for "the Fourth Dimension" is the very act of
perceiving (consciousness) or feeling (sensation). Artists and writers
often think of the fourth dimension as the life of the mind.

Graffiti!


Graffiti (singular: graffito; the plural is used as a mass noun) is writing or drawings scribbled, scratched, or sprayed illicitly on a wall or other surface in a public place. Graffiti ranges from simple written words to elaborate wall paintings, and has existed since ancient times, with examples dating back to Ancient Greece and the Roman Empire.

In modern times, paint, particularly spray paint, and marker pens have become the most commonly used graffiti materials. In most countries, marking or painting property without the property owner's consent is considered defacement and vandalism, which is a punishable crime. Graffiti may also express underlying social and political messages and a whole genre of artistic expression is based upon spray paint graffiti styles. Within hip hop culture, graffiti has evolved alongside hip hop music, b-boying, and other elements. Unrelated to hip-hop graffiti, gangs use their own form of graffiti to mark territory or to serve as an indicator of gang-related activities.

Controversies that surround graffiti continue to create disagreement amongst city officials/law enforcement and writers who wish to display and appreciate work in public locations. There are many different types and styles of graffiti and it is a rapidly developing art form whose value is highly contested, reviled by many authorities while also subject to protection, sometimes within the same jurisdiction.

Hue




Hue is one of the main properties of a color, defined technically (in the CIECAM02 model), as "the degree to which a stimulus can be described as similar to or different from stimuli that are described as red, green, blue, and yellow,"[1] (the unique hues). The other main correlatives of color appearance are colorfulness, chroma, saturation, lightness, and brightness.

Usually, colors with the same hue are distinguished with adjectives referring to their lightness and/or chroma, such as with "light blue", "pastel blue", "vivid blue". Exceptions include brown, which is a dark orange,[2] and pink, a light red with reduced chroma.

In painting color theory, a hue refers to a pure color—one without tint or shade (added white or black pigment, respectively).[3] A hue is an element of the color wheel. Hues are first processed in the brain in areas in the extended V4 called globs.[4][5]

Intaglio
(printmaking)

Intaglio is a family of printmaking techniques in which the image is incised into a surface, known as the matrix or plate, and the incised line or area holds the ink. Normally, copper or zinc plates are used as a surface, and the incisions are created by etching, engraving, drypoint, aquatint or mezzotint. Collographs may also be printed as intaglio plates.
Intaglio engraving, as a method of making prints, was invented in Germany by the 1430s, well after the woodcut print. Engraving had been used by goldsmiths to decorate metalwork, including armour, musical instruments and religious objects since ancient times, and the niello technique, which involved rubbing an alloy into the lines to give a contrasting colour, also goes back to late antiquity. It has been suggested[by whom?] that goldsmiths began to print impressions of their work to record the design, and that printmaking developed from that.

Hope I got it right o.o

- JPEG/JPG format

JPEG is a method of image compression. It's the most common image format used by digital cameras, it's also very common among digital artists and graphic designers. It gives the image poorer quality than in PNG format, but is much smaller in KB. JPG does not preserve transparency.

Khachkar


"Cross-stone (or rock)" in Armenian; they are unique to Armenia,
though now found in other spots of the globe in tribute and memorial to
Armenians. A khachkar - usually formed from basalt or tuff - may be freestanding or in relief, but either type of stone is carved.

Though khachkar from the 4th-century onward most frequently have Christian meanings,
the Armenian cross-stone/rock, as a concept, predates the Christian
religion into prehistoric times. Khachkar are used as church decoration,
gravestones, and to mark military victories or other events of
historical significance.


There are some interesting parallels between the patterns of khachkar
and Early Celtic crosses, though Armenian crosses end in points
(instead of loops), and often incorporate both the tree of life and the
pre-Christian symbol for "sun."
