What is a gouache?

What is a gouache?

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.

Neo-Geo

Known by Neo-Geo for short, this movement uses geometric objects and shapes to create abstract artwork as a metaphor for society. It is inspired by several different styles of 20th century art forms such as minimalism and pop-art. Starting in the 1980's, Neo-geo was in response to the industrialization and commercialization of the modern world.

Activist art

Activist art is art created to address social and political issues. It is a kind of performance art because it is presented in public, working closely with the community which will create it. One example could be creating and posting social protest fliers in exhibition.

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.
