Art is generally understood as any activity or product done by people with a communicative or aesthetic purpose. But many people also say that art cannot be defined. Art is also a way to express the feeling. But art is much more than we think. It is in various forms. Many people misunderstand art and think it’s just based on paintbrushes and canvas. But art is much broader than we think. Music is an art so is the Film. To promote the various forms of art, tulikaa.com was started as a platform for all young artists.
