Artistic Styles

Fauvism is a used by French artists. The style of fauvism is painted and is known with intense colours and vigorous brushstrokes. Fauvism became more popular from 1905 to 1907. 
Fauvism means “wild beast” in French because of the unusual boldness of their styles. By about 1907 some artist that used fauvism changed their styles of painting. They had been influenced throughout Europe .

in order to do fauvism u will need to squeeze out bright colors straight out of a tube of paint. Fauvism began in a exhibition in Paris in the early 20th century.

Cubism is a style of painting created in the 20th century by Pablo Picasso and another famous artist, in Spain. In order to do this style of art you will have to break up images and paint it in one canvas or paper stuck together, like are collage. The reason why cubism is broken up to pieces and drawn into one is to show what a face looks like from another perspective with details.

Post Impressionist used by British artists were characterized by bright colors, sharp and outlined edges. Post impressionist wasn’t a formal movement or painting style. Artists who used this style was focused on the emotional and symbolic elements to paint. The technique used for this style was tiny dots or stroke of colours.

Today new artist continue to emerge and to develop.
