The difficulties of the creation and the search for improvement are the two main factors leading to the advent of this book. Due to the author being an artist, the analyses are based on the practice refined in the studio. This book divulges secrets such as how to realize and perceive art by "seeing", and not by "thinking", which highlights its great difference from other writings done by other theorists. Historically, the image has been the core of the human vision. The author focuses first on its quality and investigates its changes, from ancient times until today. Then, he highlights the interactions among image and language, writing, photography, the computer, and other inventions, systematically explaining how their collisions and influences affect our art and culture. His explanation is impressive and unprecedented. His excellent elucidation on geometric images, symmetry, proportion, perspective, and the mystic golden number, linked with mathematics, psychology, and the philosophy make these the most interesting parts of this book. These offer essential knowledge suitable to any reader. This book also directs us into important issues such as: the media of the artist, the transformation of the proposal, chance, destruction, vanguards, and how to become a contemporary artist; all which are necessary to improve an artist's ability to create. Lastly, the author deepens into the analysis of the basic qualities of an artist: what is "I", and how it derives from "us". He explains how love, moods, rules, and social consent are part of our assimilation of reality. Consequently, he concludes that the liberation and understanding of our hearts are the most important themes of an artist. The language of this book is explicit, persistent, and conducive. Therefore, the readers can easily understand the mysterious world of the visual artist, while successfully comprehending the basics of contemporary art.
