Neo-Geo

Known by Neo-Geo for short, this movement uses geometric objects and shapes to create abstract artwork as a metaphor for society. It is inspired by several different styles of 20th century art forms such as minimalism and pop-art. Starting in the 1980's, Neo-geo was in response to the industrialization and commercialization of the modern world.

Painting

Painting is the process of applying media to a surface, using a tool such as a brush. The term refers to both the action and the resulting object. Artists use many tools to paint, such as brushes, airbrushes, palette knives, sponges or fingers and hands.

Performance art

Performance presented within the context of fine art that is traditionally interdisciplinary. It may be scripted or unscripted, random or orchestrated carefully; spontaneous or may carefully be planned without the participation of the audience. Performance can be through the media or live and the artist performing can either be present or not. The situation can involve the four basic elements: space, performer's body/his presence through a medium, time and performer-audience relationship. Artwork constitutes actions of a group or an individual at a particular time and space.
