"The first man painting" means the first person who has ever painted, and surely not for the creation of art itself, but as the first hunter, first Farmer and so forth ; motivated by the survival instinct. Although, the essence of this need, remained, to some extent, the same over the ages and even in today's artist, the notion and function of an artwork certainly have undergone considerable transformations.

The foundations of this transformation, advantaging from the  possibilities of  language and thought, are memory and mind, by defining new meanings out of everything we confront. Acc‌umulation of these meanings is taken into consideration as a historic and repetitive process during thousands of years, having always led to creating new definitions based on the previous meanings.

This defining process, as a primary mechanism for growth and survival, can also cause errors in perception of the objective realities. In today's world, sometimes the boundary between these realities are so obscure and the gap between the accumulated definitions and the first-hand reality is so distant that not only do they deviate from their original meanings and functions, but also can easily be manipulated.

Here, painting can be an escape towards re-experiencing the firsts, struggling to return to the origins of the meaning.
