Sand is loose grains of material primarily made of quartz, mica, feldspar and other minerals and rocks. Sand paintings are made by pouring colored sands into designs; often for cultural rituals and special celebrations. The designs take many days to complete, and finally brushed away.

Grupo Frente

Grupo Frente was a movement founded in 1954 Brazil by teaching artist Ivan Serpa. Many students at the Rio de Janeiro Museum of Modern Art participated in the movement, which sought to reject the nationalism and figuration in modernist forms of Brazilian painting.

Aesthetic movement

The Aesthetic movement occurred during the late nineteenth century. It emphasized the beauty of art, and the sensual qualities of visual art more than practical or moral features. The movement promoted creating beautiful art, simply for its own intrinsic value, throughout Britain.

Young British Artists (YBAs)

Also known as Britart and Brit artists. All these terms refer to a group of artists who started exhibiting together in the year 1988 in London. Majority of the artists graduated at Goldsmiths from BA fine arts course in the late 1980s. They are famous for wild living, use of waste/ throwaway materials and both entrepreneurial and oppositional attitude. In addition, they dominated British art and achieved wide media coverage. Most of these artists were collected and supported initially by Charles Saatchi.
