The connection between art and mental health can no longer be denied. The role of the arts in medicine is an extremely important issue both for art history and for future medical practice. Linking art to well-being and healing is actually quite obvious. Therefore, one could also assume that the influence of art on your well-being is purely aesthetic in nature.
Art has a strong influence on the environment
Art brings some humanity to a forbidding hospital corridor and life to a drab office. It underlines the human and social role of sterile or functional spaces. By humanizing and beautifying the environment, anxiety and sadness can be reduced. At the same time, general mood and productivity are improved. For some, art also serves as an inspiration for meditation or quasi-religious spiritual renewal.
