What is Art Intervention?

Art Intervention is art which is intended to interact with an existing situation, structure, artwork, audience, or institution. Interventions became popular in the 1960s, as artists sought to effect change in political and social contexts. Artist-in-residence programs were inspired by this art movement.

Cement

Cement is any variety of mixtures of clay, limestone, water, sand and gravel which forms concrete to be used as material for building things. To cement also means to join or unite. In art, cement can mean the process of gluing securely.

Oil on canvas

A type of paint that dries slowly and consists of pigment particles suspended in oil for drying, mostly linseed oil. By adding a solvent like turpentine, the paint's viscosity may be modified and vanish can also be added to increase glossiness of the paint film that's dried. Use of oil began long time ago in Europe from as early as the 12th century where it was commonly used for decoration. It was however, not adopted to be used as a medium up until the 15th century.

Resin

Resin can be made from both natural and synthetic processes. The natural version is from pine sap, and the man-made kind is a dense and easily molded form of plastic. Many sculptures are made from resin, and resin can make paint colors vivid.
