Funk Art

In the 1960s, Fun Art was a reactive movement against abstract exressionism. It was widely known as an anti-establishment movement, the name comes from the jazz term "funky". This had positive and negative notations as the term in the jazz world, described passion, quirkyness, and sensuality, while it could also be associated with a foul odor. Funk was popular in California Bay Area, and while the artists of the Funk Art era had similar attitudes and artwork, they did not consider themselves as a part of a group movement.

A visual art style that makes use of optical illusions. The works of opt art are abstract and many of the known pieces are the black & white. They typically give a movement, vibrating patterns, flashing and hidden images impression to the viewer. Op art antecedents can be traced back with respect to color effects and graphics to Futurism, Constructivism, Dada and Neo impressionism.

Bay Area Figurative Art

The Bay Area Figurative Movement, which also goes by the names Bay Area Figurative School, Bay Area Figurative Art, or Bay Area Figuration, came to existence in San-Francisco Bay Area. This was in the mid-20th century, when a group of artists from the area stopped working on the then popular Abstract Expressionism for a preference to figuration in painting. The movement lasted a total of two decades during the 1950's and 1960's.
