Art is something that has been around since the beginning of time. It's something that can be appreciated by anyone and everyone, whether you like it or not. The purpose of art is to tell a story or just express yourself or even someone else's feelings through your own artistic vision. There are many different types of art out there and each artist has their own style and way of creating things so here is a list of some different types that exist today:

Graffiti art

Graffiti art is the act of spray-painting walls, subways and other surfaces without permission of the property owner. While this may seem like a fairly destructive way to express yourself, many graffiti artists take pride in their work and feel that it should be recognized as a form of art--not vandalism.

In fact, some countries have even used graffiti art as a way to revitalize urban areas by offering legal walls for people to express themselves on. In some cities like New York City where graffiti is considered vandalism and punishable by law (and often involves jail time), artists have found ways around these restrictions through legal murals or wheatpasting posters on buildings.

Graffiti can be divided into several different types:


Photography is a creative process that involves making decisions about how to represent events, things or places in the world. Photography is used for many different purposes, including art and entertainment, journalism and education.

Photography and Painting.

Photography and painting are two different mediums of art. While you may think that they both involve the use of a camera and paintbrush, the truth is that these two mediums have very different goals. In this article, we'll look at some of the key differences between photography and painting.

First off, one of the biggest differences between photography and painting is that they're in completely different dimensions: 2D vs 3D! This means that while a painting can be viewed from any angle, looking at a photograph requires you to move your eyes in order to see it all—you can't just rotate around something like you would if it were printed on paper or canvas (although digital photos do exist). Another difference is that photography doesn't require much skill; anyone with access to technology can take photographs nowadays! On the other hand, creating an original piece of art by hand takes time in order for it to become truly unique--these days people often hire someone else who has more experience than themselves when making their works final touches perfect."


Painting is a form of visual art in which a person uses pigments, dyes, and other materials to create an image on a surface (usually non-porous). Paintings can be naturalistic and representational (realistic), photographic, abstract or conceptual. The medium used for painting is often oil paint; other media include watercolor, acrylics and tempera.

Painting has been an important form of expression throughout human history. It is one of the oldest arts in which humans have been engaged since prehistoric times. The earliest known examples of cave paintings date back to the Paleolithic era (40,000-10,000 BCE), however these examples do not preserve very much detail about their subjects' appearances or features so they are not considered art in any sense that we would recognize today.

The Middle Ages saw an explosion of painting styles and techniques as artists sought to capture more lifelike representations through their work than had previously been possible through two dimensional means such as mosaics or tapestries. This period also saw advances in perspective drawing that dramatically increased realism within scenes depicted by artists who followed this new approach


Sculpture is art that is created in three dimensions, with the most common materials being stone, metal and wood. The word sculpture derives from the Latin word sculptum which means “to carve” or “to chisel”. Sculptures can be realistic or abstract and they can be small or large in size.

A statue (or statuary) represents a person such as Jesus Christ or other religious figure that was once alive but died long ago. A relief is a carving on a flat surface that shows something 3D like an animal or human body part but doesn't show all of it at once because then you couldn't see it!

Installation art.

Installation art is a type of art that is created to be shown in a specific location.

It's not just a painting or sculpture—it's an experience for the viewer, which may mean that the work can only exist in one place at one time, or it might change over time, like with light installations. Installation art can also be temporary or permanent; some artists create transient pieces that are meant to be destroyed after they've been seen by viewers, while other artists create permanent sculptures and paintings.

There are many different types of art all over the world and each is unique to the artist that creates it while also having their own meaning behind their work

Art is a great way of expressing yourself and your feelings. Art can be used as a form of communication, whether it's through painting or sculpture.

Art is also an important part of history; in fact, we often learn about different cultures through their art pieces. For example, you can see what life was like during Ancient Egypt by looking at their sculptures and paintings that have been preserved over thousands of years!


So, there you have it! The list of different types of art that exists in the modern world. There are so many different styles and mediums out there that it would be impossible to cover them all in this one blog post but hopefully now you have a better understanding of what art is and how it can be used within society as well as yourself.
