The relationship between art and humor is older than we can imagine. It dates back to WWI when many painters and artists who were mostly in exile started experimenting with their works. They found their work as a way of protesting against the war. And thus humor became the foundation of the Dadaism movement.
The myth that art can only be serious has been proved wrong by many painters in the past decades. From “La Clairvoyance” by René Magritte, 1936 to “L.H.O.O.Q.” by Marcel Duchamp, 1919, the seeds of humor in Modern and Contemporary Art are too deep. Just like paint helps us color our surroundings, jokes make our life colourful. Humor, and the laughter it generates, have a variety of therapeutic impacts on the body that help cleanse our soul.
Modern technology might have blessed us with memes but before the Internet, it was the painters that could make one smile just by the stroke of the brush. After all, many have reported finding multiple parallels between them. Below is a video of a comedy character Mr Bean trying to paint his house using explosives.
