What types of art are there?
Answering what types of art there are is simple since academics have been emphatic in the classification:
However, if you want to delve into each classification, you have to take the time to do so, because each branch is so full of shades and information and, in turn, more classifications that it can become somewhat complicated. So today we are going to speak about painting. Specifically, of three types of 20th Century painting, which at the time reached their maximum splendor and which are still current.
These three artistic movements that we refer to were known because of their originality, concept, and plastic language. The one who reflects another view to nature and to the ideal of classical beauty that had remained intact from the Greco-Roman period to the 19th Century. So,they really were part of an artistic and cultural boom that radically and forever changed the history of art in the West.
Well, since that moment breaking the molds became a creative engine, the amount of artistic currents that have been gestated are infinite, that is why at La Florela today we choose to talk about three types of art that for us are a constant source of consultation and of inspiration. And, we take the opportunity to show you which results have arisen in that search and in that purpose of turning the colors, textures and shapes of Colombian flowers into unique pieces and authentic pieces of art
Impressionism is an art movement that emerged in France during the 1870s, where “instead of painting in a studio, artists discovered that they could capture the momentary and transient effects of sunlight by working quickly, in front of their subjects, at the same time and outdoors - according to the Tate -, which led to an awareness of light and color, as well as the changing pattern of the natural scene. The brushstrokes became quick and separated into blocks to represent the ephemeral quality of the light”.
And that is exactly the reason why we bring in this current into the creation of our Flower bouquets : because we love how the light exposes and exalts the beauty of the flowers we work with, turning them into a work of art full of emotions.
Expressionism was a movement with validity from 1905 to 1933, which according to the Art Magazine “becomes a deformation of reality to express it in a more subjective way (although lately, that may be a valid definition of art: a deformation of reality). TheExpressionist wanted to show feelings, emotions that will illustrate nature and the human being ”,
At La Florela we are attached to these principles and merge them when designing our Flower bouquets.. For instance, Merging all the love and passion of our roses with the volume and balance provided by pink pompons, so that the final product can fully and splendidly exalt the emotions of who gives them.
From 1950 to 1980, an artistic movement emerged in England and the United States that incorporated the symbols of pop culture and consumer society into art, as well as the themes and forms of representation, saying: “Hello, mass culture exists. And, it also belongs to this circle of repetition.
Then, at the hands of Andy Warhol and Roy Liechtenstein -their main exponents- the images in which the objects of mass culture were exposed as elements of beauty through flat colors and repetition became famous.
At pop art we find the balance between beauty and the continuous natural green tones. They break barriers between art and life, becoming one of our great favorites. Do you lean towards Pop Art when talking about Colombian flowers?
