PICTORIAL

The world of art is limitless. An artist can express himself in varied ways by using almost anything and turning it into a beautiful piece of art. These few fascinating art forms provides unique and exciting ways to explore new realms of artistic expression.

Sand animation art

Sand animation art is pretty interesting and very unique because sand art dissolves and vanishes in just a few minutes whereas most art pieces can last more than their original creators. That is why this form of art cannot be preserved. An artist working with this form creates a series of images using lines and figures with one’s hands.

Sand animation art is a type of performance art wherein the sand animator commonly uses an overhead projector or light board to exhibit their art within the sand. Sand animation is in constant movement and is very interactive.

Dirty car art

Drawing in the dirt caked over an unwashed car doesn’t generally have a reputation as great art.

It is created using the dirt found on car windows. Artists use thick layers of dust on cars as their canvas, and sketch pictures using fingers, fingernails, and twigs.

Shadow art

Shadows are fleeting by nature, so it’s hard to say when humans first started using them to make art, but modern shadow artists have certainly taken things to spectacular new heights. Shadow artists use carefully positioned objects to cast beautiful shadow images of people, words, or places.

Body art illusion

Body painting has been around for a long time—everyone from the Maya right back to the ancient Egyptians tried their hand at it. Body art illusion puts a modern twist on the ancient practice. As the name suggests, body art illusion involves painting a human canvas to blend in with a background or otherwise deceive onlookers. The illusions range from people painted to look like animals or cars to more subtle, disturbing imagery, like gaping holes in their skin.

Human flowers

Human minds are creative but did you know human bodies can be very creative as well.

This art is created using the movement of flexible human bodies to make floral patterns flowers.

Light painting

Lights make everything lively. Painting makes everything beautiful. Add the two and get the perfect combination.

Light painting, or light drawing, is a photographic technique in which exposures are made by moving a hand-held light source while taking a long exposure photograph, either to illuminate a subject or to shine a point of light directly at the camera, or by moving the camera itself during exposure.
