Summary/Abstract: In relation to the ongoing, permanent change of reality, its continuous and present recognition is highlighted from the perspective of a painter. It is important in building one’s own artistic creations but also in the teaching of painting. The recognition of possibilities and dangers which originate from, among others, globalization, concerns today most of all cultural identity. There are two polarizing tendencies present in culture. One is oriented towards a complete change of identity, the other relates to cultural heritage. Their recognition may enable a choice of means of expression in art relevant to reality. In teaching, this concerns shaping conscious attitudes of students. The mechanisms of some of the globalizing processes in culture and art demonstrate a similarity to processes which may be observed in other disciplines, mainly in economy. Their comparison provides knowledge of the sources of dangers in culture. Knowledge which stems from recognizing reality and the community of current experiences serves not only one’s own art but also the articulation of generational and communal messages.
