Painting is used to convey creative expression. Much like drawing, painting is a visual art form. Brushes, and various tools are used to apply pigment to a hard surface. Throughout history, painting has been used to describe a moment, historical record, political views, emotion and many other areas of the human condition. Paint or pigment has been mixed with oils, egg, thinner, and a variety of other less common additives to give the image qualities such as mood, integrity, depth and adhesion.

Abstract art is non-representational art or sculpture that does not depict elements of the natural world and signify a departure from realistic portrayal. Art from the Renaissance to the 19th century was realist and representational in nature. As European artists began to be exposed to art from other cultures, they found new ways to depict visual language. By the late 19th century, abstract forms and works began to appear in the art world.
