Master's Theses



Degree Name

Master of Arts (MA)


Man produces art as a means of communicating. The artist’s skillful work is not only for self-satisfaction (pleasure) but to satisfy others. The artist wishes man to understand his aesthetical presentations. He wants to receive an emotional response to his work. Although at times art may seem confusing, gloomy, and very unattractive, it enhances man’s life and fulfills a basic need in his survival. Art has existed since the beginning of man. There has always been a need to imitate. It is for this reason that man must express himself. He is forever wondering why things are as they are. The truth is his destiny. It is through this search that man begins to find the mirror image of himself in nature.
