Fantastic vs fantasy genre definitions
Fantasy art as it is defined by Wikipedia is a contemporary version of the fantastic genre of the previous centuries. However, it is not exactly correct. Everything lies in the defining of the word fantasy. From the one hand, all artistic creations could fall under the term fantasy as long as they require some creativity, from the other hand, only pieces related to certain imaginary worlds could make the claim. The problem lies in the extremely broad definition of the word fantasy. If one considers fantasy as a genre of fiction, it gets even more confusing when one tries applying it to fine-art. The fantasy fiction is a genre of story-telling about imaginary worlds of magic and mysticism. Academics and thinkers tell us that imaginary dreaming has positive influences — providing 'small regressions and compensatory wish fulfilments which are recuperative in effect'. In phycology, fantasy covers literally all senses, the conscious and unconscious ones. Even though the unconscious sense spells differently, phantasy, it does not really help, or does it?
