A watercolor paint that's opaque unlike the usual transparent watercolors. It gives an artist the freedom to paint layers from the light to the dark ones. Gouache is often used for the solid colors when painting. It is a type of paint in the wide category of the water-media that consists of a pigment, binding agent and an inert material designed specifically for use in a method that is opaque.

Postmodernism

Postmodernism is artwork which sought to make visual statements against authority, to remove boundaries between art and everyday life, and to bridge gaps between the cultural elite and popular masses. Art in this movement embraces many earlier conventions and styles in eclectic mixtures.

Art Fabrication

A process that relates to production of technically difficult or large artworks. It happens when a designer or lone artist is unable to realize a creation of conception or design of his or her own and seeks assistance in a fabrication studio. Such a studio has access to specialized machinery, resources and the necessary labor required in order to excellently execute complex art projects.

Postminimalism

Postminimalism describes the range of art styles in the 1960s which followed Minimalism. Forms of art common the term include conceptual, body, performance, process and site-specific themes. While Minimalism generally embraced impersonality, postminimalists sought to retain Minimalism or embrace expressiveness; investigating new materials and techniques.
