There are many people who claim they really just “don’t like art”, but the truth is that they then turn around and show an appreciation for stylized maps, postcards, graphic design, or whatever else. That is to say, they have an appreciation for arts but have not yet been exposed to a type of fine arts which they can appreciate. This is more common than one might think, because often exposure to the fine arts occurs on a very limited scale in today’s world. People know the big names—Monet, Van Gogh, Picasso, Da Vinci, etc. However, if one does not like the art that they would find in an art history textbook or see on television, then they would likely think they cannot appreciate fine arts. Baryn Futa has discovered that this is simply not the case. People like fine art, they just have discover what type speaks to them.
