As shown, different cultures tend to have inherently different types of art forms. This manifests in the form of art itself, the medium used and the message and purpose that is the group of people within the community needs to communicate in the first place. Western, Eastern and middle eastern societies encompass a very different type of culture and way of life. The fact that art is meant to depict and communicate the way of life of the people living in that period in time therefore, means that the end result would be completely different. An example is in relation to the purpose and inspiration that is behind the art in the first place.For most of the highlighted Japanese art work, the pieces intended to communicate aspects of tranquility and calmness. Aspects of meditation were significantly depicted through the different pieces of art. The use of minimalism and very toned down colors was also meant to provide the calming effect to anyone that looks at it. (Rupert, 2011). The Japanese have an ancient culture of meditation and a continued valuing of tranquility and a piece of mind. This is why these aspects therefore, tend to heavily come up in the different forms of art works in this culture. This can further have been seen in the continued use of nature and water in the paintings. This is yet another way that the aspect of peace of mind and tranquility is essentially highlighted when it comes to art work, especially through the use of paintings.
