 1. Soft Abstract Expressionism-  Leading Artist Katheleen Mitro   Katheleen Mitro

This genre of art uses beautiful colors and soft flowing lines to create playful almost cartoon like characters telling a storyline on one storyboard, the canvas.
Soft Abstract is a gentler offshoot of traditional Abstract Expressionism made famous by de Kooning, de Kooning,  Pollock , Pollock and Rothko Rothko
Soft abstract lets the painting come up with no intention to create anything definite. Paint and crayons are applied to the canvas in various smears and lines letting whatever picture that wants to emerge to emerge.  Soft Abstract Expressionism  Soft Abstract Expressionism

2. Binary Sculptor - Leading artist Koogz

Coining the phrase ‘Binary Sculptor” Koogz’ Koogz art delves into the portion of life usually left unnoticed.  A kind of modern day Michelangelo Michelangelo his art is a combination of objects with their essence contained and then manipulated with the intent of bringing out the unseen characteristics that lie deeper.
A culmination of the theories related to the science of quantum; the behaviors of small particles and the space with which they reside
“Binary” is the language of computers based in math, and it is in the shadows of the binary the imagery challenging what is seen in our limited spectrum is then revealed.

“I am equally observer as creator” as the images unfold and what is revealed is much a surprise to me as anyone as seen in my series titled “Of Hearts & Wings" http://www.koogz.net/

3. Digital Painting
Digital painting Digital Painting  is a method of creating an art object (painting) digitally and/or a technique for making digital art in the computer. As a method of creating an art object, it adapts traditional painting medium such as acrylic paint, oils, ink, watercolor, etc. and applies the pigment to traditional carriers, such as woven canvas cloth, paper, polyester etc. by means of computer software driving industrial robotic or office machinery (printers). As a technique, it refers to a computer graphics software program that uses a virtual canvas and virtual painting box of brushes, colors and other supplies. The virtual box contains many instruments that do not exist outside the computer, and which give a digital artwork a different look and feel from an artwork that is made the traditional way.

 Street culture and graffiti are well-known for being provocative, appealing, bold and uncompromising. Originally used by gangs to mark their territory in some urban area, graffitis have now become a rich medium for unrestricted expression of ideas and statements. In fact, creative designers and artists across the globe use this form of art to deliver their message and showcase their work. -

5. Photorealism Art- Leading Artist Richard Estes Richard Estes
Beginning in the 1960s, the photorealist movement sought to create shockingly lifelike images, usually in imitation of actual photographs. By copying even the tiniest detail a camera could record, photorealist artists were able to produce “an image of an image of life.” The movement, also known as Super-realism or Hyperrealism, encompassed sculpture as well as painting and was heavily influenced by the contemporary pop art movement. But while pop art ironically removed commercial images from their context, photorealism focused on the power of ordinary, everyday life, recreated as accurately as possible.
Influential photorealist artists include Richard Estes, Audrey Flack, Robert Bechtle, Chuck Close, and sculptor Duane Hanson, who have all produced art amazingly realistic enough to leave you questioning if your whole life has been a lie. The movement is usually not a hit with art critics, who often believe it elevates sheer mechanical proficiency over ideas and style.- John ForbesEstes_tkts_LinePhoto credit: Richard Estes
