Leonardo da Vinci was a true Renaissance man. The definition of a Renaissance man is
“a man who has broad intellectual interests and is accomplished in areas of both arts and sciences.” There is no phrase, which can better summarize da Vinci and his incredible accomplishments.
His brilliance was revealed early on, and his experiences as a young man greatly influenced his later life. He grew to be a gifted and innovative painter, whose works and techniques are among the most well known of his time.
He is also viewed as an influential sculptor. Also, Leonardo made many inventions, and was able to fore tell the design of many machines which are still in use today.
Yet another area he excelled in was the field of science, particularly with his incredibly detailed and accurate anatomical illustrations. Because of his amazing talent in so many areas, Leonardo da Vinci is considered to be the epitome of a Renaissance man.
Leonardo da Vinci’s early life had a profound effect on his later accomplishments. Like William Shakespeare, he came from an insignificant background and, purely because of his genius, became one of the most influential people of his time. He was born on April 15, 1452, at 3 A.M. in the small town of Vinci.
“It is true that I cannot stand my brushes, but I feel that I have offended God and all of mankind by not working as hard at art as I should have.” Leonardo da Vinci on his death bed .
There are many artists that have become well known over the years. such as, Vincent van Gogh and Michelangelo, but no artist has accomplished as much as Leonardo da Vinci did in many different fields of artwork and science. Not only is the Mona Lisa the most world renown painting, Leonardo came up with the ideas and drawings of a machine gun, tank, helicopter, and other objects we use today back in the 1400's. He was a man ahead of his time. His contributions in the areas of art, science, and humanity are still among the most important that a single man has put forth, definitely making his a life worth knowing.

'THE ARTIST IS THE ONE ,WHO HAS REALISED THE NOBODYNESS WITHIN'
ART IS NOT ONLY THE ACT OF THE MIND OR THE BODY. IT IS PURELY THE EXPRESSIONS OF ONE'S INNER JOY THROUGH VARIOUS MOMENTS, THROUGH THE PHYSICAL FORMS OF EXPRESSIONS. LET IT BE PAINTING, SCULPTURE OR ANY OTHER PERFORMING ARTS LIKE MUSIC,DANCE Etc. LET IT BE ANYTHING, EVEN THE MARTIAL ARTS COULD BE.
WHEN A ARTIST PERFORM THE ART, HE/SHE WILL BE NO MORE.THE ART AND THE ARTIST WILL BECOME ONE AND THE SAME.THERE WILL BE NO MORE TWO IDENTITYS.THE IDENTITYS CAN NOT EXIST,ONLY THE ARTIST EXIST IN HIS/HER WHOLE ORGANIC UNITY WITH THE PARTICULAR ART.EACH AND EVERY FIBRE OF THE ARTIST WILL PULSATE WITH THAT ENERY AND THUS PRODUCE THE ART,IT IS A PURE OUT COME OF THAT ENERGY TRANSFORMATION.
FOR EXAMPLE:- WHEN THE DANCER BECOME NO MORE ,THAN ONLY THE DANCE CAN EXIST. A DANCER , HE/SHE WILL BECOME ONE WITH THE DANCE .WHEN ONE'S LOOSE ONE'S IDENTITY OF CARRYING SOMEBODYNESS CAN BECOME THE ARTIST.THE TRUE ARTIST HAS TO CROSS THE STATE FROM SOMBODYNESS TO NOBODYNESS.
ONLY THE NOBODY CAN BECOME THE ART OR THE ARTIST.IT IS THE ULTIMATE EXPRESSION OF THE INNER BEAUTY.
THE ART IS THE 'INNER-ALCHEMY' OF THE ARTIST.ONCE THE ARTIST KNOW, HOW TO TRANSFORM THAT ENERGY OUTSIDE, IN A SYNCHRONISED PATTERN, HE/SHE WILL BECOME THE ARTIST.THAN WHAT EVER THEY CREATE,EXPRESS IT,WILL BECOME THE ART.
THE SAME APPLYS FOR POET'S OR PHILOSOPHIZER .
