What is Multimedia?

Multimedia refers to the art technique of combining several single mediums together into one composition. Sometimes, it is called mixed-media. Artists often create new, personal techniques using combinations of art materials in different ways, and the new techniques become part of their unique artistic style.

Op Art

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.

Spatialism

Art movement that originated from Italy in the year 1947 when Lucio Fontana founded it with an intention to synthesize sound, color, movement and space into an entirely new type of art. The main ideas of the movement came from his manifesto that was published in 1496 where he spoke of "spatial art" to keep the spirit of the post war age. The ideas were further boosted by the five manifestos that followed the first one. Though his ideas were vague, his outlook was strongly influential probably because he was the first artist from Europe to promote art as a performance and gesture.

Colour Field Painting

Colour field painting is an abstract style which features large areas of a single color. The first use of the term described the work of three abstract expressionist American painters, Barnett Newman, Mark Rothko and Clyfford Still in the 1950s.
