Artists are known for their signature style and subtlety, but their work often also contains a touch that’s far more striking and dramatic.
In this article, we’ll discuss five of those styles and how to apply them to your art.1.
Expressionistic: Artistic expression and expressionism are the two sides of the same coin: the art of expressing what you’re feeling.
If you’re trying to express your emotions, you want to make something that’s powerful and expressive, and that’s why you’ll want to be inspired by expressionists like Renoir, Goya, and Degas.2.
Romantic: Romanticism is often called “artistic” because it’s concerned with the idea that the world, and everything in it, is somehow worth living for, and to enjoy.
The art of romanticism isn’t simply about capturing the moment and turning it into something beautiful, but rather to create a sense of being alive and in the moment.
The more of this you cultivate, the better you’ll feel in your own life and the way things unfold in the world.3.
Postmodern: Postmodernism is the art movement that’s obsessed with making our world better by looking at the past and thinking about what we’ve lost and what we can gain from it.
This art movement focuses on looking at our own lives and thinking of ways to create better experiences for ourselves, our families, and others.4.
Post-realist: This art trend is concerned with deconstructing the very idea of reality in order to reveal a world that we can experience, and a world we can inhabit, more fully.
The goal of this movement is to break the myth of the fixed world of what we see and know as reality and to transform it into a new world that’s not just about what you see but also what you experience.5.
Futurist: Futurism is a type of postmodernism that’s concerned more with the future than the past.
Futurology is a branch of post-realism that focuses on exploring what it means to live in the present.
The idea of life is a continuous process, and the future is a very different place than the present, which is why futurologists try to imagine the future and imagine what it will look like.
These are the five styles of expression that you should definitely be aware of when designing your art, and when you work with it.
