There are many styles of art in the world to capture your imagination and it would take a long time to list every single one. The question is, what type of artist are you?

You are a: SCULPTOR!

You don't just see a chunk of marble – you see an opportunity to create!

Result: Surrealist artist


Your paintings don't make sense at all – in a good way! You style of art makes the brain kick into gear as it tries to decipher what an earth is going on. Like, why are all the clocks melting?

Abstract artist


Sure, your style of painting doesn't exactly represent what it's supposed to, but your use of colour and shapes really makes you stop and think! Abstract painting loves to kick the rules into a big hedge.

Result: Modern Artist


Modern art definitely breaks the rules of what art is or is supposed to be. It's experimental and exciting. What to paint a smear of blue across that drawing of a face? Sure, go ahead. Have fun. What does it mean? Whatever you want it to mean!
