Photorealism is a form of art where you create such an illusion with paint that it appears that you are looking at a real photograph. It is also known as hyper realism or super realism. The paintings look like sharp focused pictures and they are so close to life that you will take a moment to differentiation between the two. The detailing in this kind of style is exceptional. The compositions are very strong and even reality might not as bright as photorealistic art.
This is a step down from photorealistic paintings. It often appears as the subject looks exactly what it looks like in real life. You will feel like the painting is true to life. The most skillful paintings are seen in this style. Everything looks real, whether it is the wrinkles on the face or the contours of the body. The composition looks more real because of lighting. A lot of portraits form a part of this kind of art style.
The painterly style is less about showing what is real and focusing more on the use of textures. The painter focuses more the right paint, the right brushwork and bringing the right texture in the artwork. The painter does not wish to create a ‘real’ artwork. He wishes to create a work of art that shows his skilful use of paint to make the subject look different, unique and more appealing than ever before.
Impressionism started in 19th Century Paris and is still one of the most celebrated forms of art. This is a rough style of painting and you will find many huge artworks in this style. It is all about giving a brand new look to the subject. The artist views the subject in an entirely different light than what we normally see it as. As a result of this, it becomes very essential for the on-looker to take a very deep look at the picture.
Expressionism barely relies on reality. It does not take ‘the real way a thing looks’ into perspective. The artist does not feel that he has is forced to make the picture look like its real. He can use different paints and brushstrokes in order to create an illusion. The artworks are generally made to express a particular emotion. As a result of this, you would hardly find realistic colors here. The focus is more on bringing out the soul of the emotion.
We hope that now you will be able to find out the best art styles for your home. Remember, an artwork does not only enhance the look of your home but also portrays your personality. So choose carefully.
