Compare with Europe's art ,asia art was much more simple ，it is known as line drawing and figure sculpture ,the topic is most on the characters in the myths or god .The painting style was not delicate and compilicated ,however ,they perfer distinctive color on the characters ,it especially reflected on chinese painting ,people like to draw the some of the God's face angry ,because Chinses people believe that will scare the evil away. Asian people not only good at painting ,but also good at sculpture,most people like to carve God (in small size) and put it in the house ,that they can pray everyday . Absolutly different coutry has different colors of God .Like Japn peole perfer white ,because they think the white is most pure color ; however Korean likes to use the dark color for God,cause God in their heart was serious.People start create and make the panting since ancinet time ,when there was no languages system people painting for recording ,after that ,the paintig start become artwork ,and from basic recording ,the art become tastefully and meanfully .
During the middle Ages ,art start become famous as painting ,since near thousand years ,art start become pupular ,the different kind of art increase,coincidentally British artist David Hockney was in New York's Whitney Museum ,he was known as his painting ,drawing prints and photographs ,as well as opera set design.This time he took a film which is long 9 minutes ,12 man in blakc that in colorful object moving in the bright room ,he using 18 screens ,shadow-less light ,he use photo collages to makes the picture .That was a definely new way to express art ,doesn't like other artist ,he doesn't use hand draw ,he uses more technology ways to do it.As the socity develop ,more and more people using techonology in their life ,few poeple caring arts ,that was actually benefit way let people focus on the art.
