Pen and ink is a traditional drawing technique using a dip style pen with India ink on paper. The fine tip on the old-fashioned pen is excellent for drawing varied lines and shading details. Some artists use a fountain pen with ink reservoir.

Conceptual art

Sometimes referred to as Conceptualism. It is an art where idea(s) or concept(s) included in the work come before material concerns and traditional aesthetic. Many of these conceptual artworks can be constructed by any person by simply following instructions written. The concept or idea is the most fundamental aspect of artwork.

Action painting

Figuration Libre

This is an art movement equivalent to the French Bad Painting and the Neo-expressionism in Europe and America. This art term was coined by Ben Vautier and Fluxus.
