Renaissance Men in the Modern World .

Leonardo da Vinci is one of the most famous artists of the renaissance. He’s painted hundreds of famous paintings and sketches that can be found around the world. The past artists of the renaissance used paper or canvas and created sculptures to portray art or share ideas. A lot has changed since Da Vinci’s day, we are in the informational age and globalization. With the introduction of new technology it allows people to more easily share ideas or create art. With the easy access to the internet anyone can master science or art. During the golden age of art there was a fine line that you could identify who the renaissance man was, with advances in technology it has become harder to discover who would be a renaissance man.

People know who the past renaissance men were and how they were identified but most don’t know that there are more today than there were in the past. There was a simpler definition in the past to  identify them. Most past renaissance men were identified by their paintings and ideas that they had created. Today most would identify a modern renaissance men by the ideas that they have came up with or the impact that they have left on the world.

Today most people would say that art comes from New York or California, people think that if the want to be an artist that they have to run off to the west coast, but you don’t have to go anywhere.  Thanks to social media or YouTube you can create your own art and share it with the world with the click of a button.
