What is Multimedia?

Multimedia refers to the art technique of combining several single mediums together into one composition. Sometimes, it is called mixed-media. Artists often create new, personal techniques using combinations of art materials in different ways, and the new techniques become part of their unique artistic style.

Art Brut

A French term that means "raw art". It was invented by Jean Dubuffet in an attempt to describe and explain naive and graffiti art made outside the normal fine art's academic tradition. He termed it as "outsider art", made by loners, prisoners, the mentally ill and other groups of people considered marginalized. It is made without thought to presentation or imitation.

Tachisme

French abstract painting style that gained popularity between 1940-1950. It is often interpreted as a European equivalent of abstract expressionism. There are however, stylistic differences between the two art types. Tachisme was initially part of Art Informel which in favor of more intuitive expression, left geometric abstraction. Tachisme came as a reaction to artworks of Cubism. However, it is closely related to Informalism.

Naive art

Naïve art describes a style of artwork which is unsophisticated and simple. It usually describes the artwork of artists who have not trained in a formal academy or art school. The style is unsophisticated, simple, lacking advanced art techniques; appearing that a child made it.
