Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the things you did do.

Robert Henri once said that the object isn’t to make art, it’s to be in that wonderful state which makes art inevitable. By perusing this I felt the need to embark one more time on a journey of wonders, a journey through mosaic art. This craft, which never fails to inspire us, where it also offers us an opportunity to dive through the creative process of tiles. This three-dimensional medium has been around for centuries. In fact, the oldest known mosaics come from the 8th century BC, and they were made of pebbles. Historians estimate that the oldest depictions were implemented by Greek designers in the late 11th century. Conversely the common designs were works of locals in the 12th–13th centuries. Normally, mosaics from different epochs and regions have recognizable distinctiveness, and these designs are often conceptually created. Numerous mosaics for instance, have been created to pay tribute or memorialize a certain epoch, god, or place. Some mosaics, on the other hand, may simply be created as a form of the artist’s creative expression. This article will help you explore 5 of the most avant-garde mosaic ideas that look like the happiest place of five different cities in Europe:

For many of us, the bathroom is easily our favorite part of the house since it’s where we seek freshness, bloom and other, more intimate pursuits. This solo hangout spot is a fairly comfy haven, a solace that no other spot of the house can provide, with the exception of the cellar and its stores of glorious groceries and wine. Nevertheless, the fact that a bathroom is a place where we’re supposed to freshen up and revive ourselves is reason enough to make it as restful as possible. As such, it’s only logical that we color it with the shade that automatically transports you into a relaxing mood. Looking for ways to revamp your bathroom?

The mosaics in Julie Sperling’s “Fiddling while Rome burns” series each tackle a different trend or concept, from rising temperatures to changing precipitation trends to the difference between weather and climate. Her artistic statement has the flair to persuade literal as well as global warnings to the heaps, improving an individual’s sense of commitment in the communal sense. The artist has been recently engaged in an ongoing series about climate change, titled Fiddling While Rome Burns. Her mosaics tackle specific climate-correlated concepts, impact or solution. Her concepts usually embark upon scientific, literary and political matters. There’s a different apparition for each of her mosaic patterns.Hence, she conveys her ideas and messages using a huge variety of mediums, each one carefully selected to create unique and theoretical patterns. While she does her best in her personal life, at work she often feels like her hands are tied. Such is the reality of being a small gear in the greater engine of federal bureaucracy. As reported by Sperling, mosaic is a powerful medium to converse climate change, not only because of its germaneness, but also the manifested analogous between the art form and global climate change. Both require a lot of endurance through the gradual processes, but each one depends on the power of the cluster. Pieces of stones and glass come together to create images with an assemblage of pieces, accordingly our actions add up and make a difference in the fight against climate change.
