Origins of the forms of art were found in ancient caves that date back thousands of years, in mankind’s infancy. And pictography was the first way of communicating among early humans. As far as we know, it was the only way to communicate before the spoken and written languages were developed. Pictography was a main method of communication. Pictures of animals or hunters on the caves’ walls has been dated to be more than twenty thousand years old and is ancient proof that pictography has been a basic form of communication.
Fine Art has been determined by being not only historic, aesthetically valuable, and beautiful and also the most tangible among all other art forms. There are fine art transport services numerous historical paintings and sculptures that date back many centuries and are being studied, exhibited and treasured in great museums of Fine Art around the world.

Art of entertainment is booming! Hollywood stars, singers and dancers are getting all the recognitions and having lavish lives, starting during their young years. However many talented and innovative visual artists get recognized when they are very old or have passed on. This old dilemma needs to be and can be changed.
Why am I writing this message to the world? I am doing my part to be heard and seen as a fellow artist and visual creator who is still around and not that old, and would like to make a positive change in a stale existence of the art world. There should be no more innovative starving artists. True talented visual artists should not strive and struggle in poverty all their lives. We artists need to be recognized and well rewarded during our lives, in the same way as movie stars; performers or even ball players get their recognitions and rewards. Art dealers should no more sell original art pieces from artists that are no longer here to benefit from the sales. No more art dealers selling past artists original works for huge amount of money..Art dealers shouldn’t have any right to resell and capitalize on the work they did not produce and live their lives in luxury by those sales. This is the worst form of stealing from an artist who is long gone. There are many examples of this; one of them is now a famous artist: Vincent Van Gogh, each painting is selling for sixty million dollars. What a shame. When one reads Van Gogh’s biography of his difficult poverty stricken life that he lived, often eating his paints in order to survive and the suicidal ending makes one cry. Vincent Van Gogh does not want us to sob, he wants us to prevail and make sure that no more of his unfortunate life saga repeats ever again. And many other artists want us to change the unfair life pattern of a talented innovative fine artist.
