Figurative art

Sometimes known as Figurativism. It particularly describes sculptures and paintings clearly or specifically derived from sources of real objects hence they are representational as the name suggests "figurative art". This term is often used as a contrast for abstract art. However, since the coming of abstract art, this term has been used to mean any form of modern art with strong references to the actual/real world situation.

Auto-destructive art is an invented term used to describe artworks which were destroyed during the process of their creation. Gustaz Metzger clarified his key principles: The work must return to nothingness within 20 years-time, it must be self-completing and include public participation.
