Creating art is a form of self-expression. It is an incorporation of the creative skills, imagination and feelings of a human being. A person who is interested in the field of arts has a greater understanding of the amount of emotion that an artwork can captivate. Even during the early ages, people have used many forms of art to convey a message and in turn gain the emotions of other people. It is not easy to portray one’s feelings and imagination into a piece of artwork, but oftentimes those who succeed are destined for recognition that lasts throughout ages.

There are artists who placed hidden witty commentaries on their artwork and a lot of people find this hilarious especially that time before Joke of the Day calendars were released.

The “The Experts” represents the obsession of art snobs to a painting that is conventionally styled, and the best part is that these art snobs were depicted by monkeys.
