Cubism was a 20th century avant-garde art movement, pioneered by Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque, that revolutionized European painting and sculpture, and inspired related movements in music, literature and architecture.


Futurism was an artistic and social movement that originated in Italy in the early 20th century. It emphasized and glorified themes associated with contemporary concepts of the future, including speed, technology, youth and violence, and objects such as the car, the airplane and the industrial city.

Street art
Street Art

Street art is any art developed in public spaces — that is, "in the streets" — though the term usually refers to unsanctioned art, as opposed to government sponsored initiatives. The term can include traditional graffiti artwork, sculpture, stencil graffiti and street poster art, video projection, art intervention, guerrilla art, flash mobbing and street installations. 


Pointillism is a technique of painting in which small, distinct dots of pure colour are applied in patterns to form an image. Georges Seurat developed the technique in 1886 and Chuck Close continues it today.


Impressionism was a 19th-century art movement that originated with a group of Paris-based artists who began to paint outside and give the ‘impression’ of what they saw. Notable Artists were Monet, Renoir and Degas.

Concept art

Concept art is a form of illustration where the main goal is to convey a visual representation of a design, idea, and/or mood for use in films, video games, animation, or comic books before it is developed into the final product.


Surrealism was an artistic and literary movement, dedicated to expressing the imagination as revealed in dreams, free of the conscious control of reason and convention.


A style of painting, music, or drama in which the artist or writer seeks to express the inner world of emotion rather than external reality.
