Modern Realism

Modern realism describes artwork which depicts things as they exist in reality. Because the art style followed after abstract art was developed, the art is generally painted or drawn using modern approaches while continuing to paint realistic subjects from everyday life.

Abstract art

Abstract art uses visual language of form, shape, line and color to achieve its desired effect. However, it does not attempt or seek to represent external reality but the created abstract art composition may exist with a level or degree of independence from the world's visual references.

Arte Povera

A movement and style in art that originated in Italy back in the 1960s. It combines concepts of minimalists, performance and conceptual art by making use of common or worthless materials like newspapers or stones with the hope of subverting the process of art commercialization.
