The Different Categories of Art
There are plentiful art categories for us to appreciate, especially paintings. Starting from “Abstract Art” which is created using forms, shapes, lines, colors, and gestural marks that provide a depiction of reality in an “abstract” manner or even disconnected from reality altogether. Then there is “Conceptual Art” which is all about ideas and meaning rather than a work of art. It is distinguishable by its use of text, as well as imagery, along with a variety of ephemeral, mundane materials and “found objects”. For those who would like to view more reality-based paintings, “Still Life” might be fitting for you. As the name suggests, still life painting represents inanimate, typically commonplace objects that are either natural or man-made. Similar, but hugely different to still life paintings is the “Vanitas” art. It is a still life artwork that aims to constantly remind the audience of their mortality and of the worthlessness of worldly goods and pleasures – Skull is commonly seen in this type of artwork.
Those mentioned above are not all the categories of art there are still many more such as Landscape, Portrait, Fantasy, Pop culture, Religion, Street Arts, and even more for you to explore.

Next, Action painting. It is a direct, instinctual, and highly dynamic kind of art that involves the spontaneous application of vigorous, sweeping brush strokes and the chance effects of dripping and spilling paint onto the canvas.
Then we have Anamorphosis. A greek word meaning “to transform” and in the visual arts, it is an ingenious perspective technique that gives a distorted image of the subject in a picture when seen from the usual viewpoint, but so executed that if viewed from a particular angle the picture would appear normal.
Another interesting technique is Camaieu, a painting technique by which an image is executed either entirely in shades or in a tint of a single color. Sometimes it could be in several hues that are unnatural to the represented scene in the painting.
