Style: Cubism
Genre: Abstract
Abstract art – art that is geometric in design or simplified from its natural appearance; abstract art does not need to look like anything real.
Surrealistic art – also known as “Fantasy Art”, this art is a combination of Cubism mixed with rich imagination based on childhood memories, folklore, and country life.
Cubism - the artistic technique of taking something and reducing it to its basic geometric shape...it also allows a three dimensional form to remain that way in a two dimensional depiction. Imagine yourself with a zipper up your back that allows you to lie flat on a page, but shows your whole body.
Expressionism - presents the world solely from a subjective perspective, distorting it radically for emotional effect in order to evoke moods or ideas.
