Mixed media art refers to a visual art form that incorporates a variety of materials and techniques into a single artwork. It often combines traditional art mediums like painting, drawing, and sculpture with unconventional or non-traditional materials such as found objects, textiles, paper, photographs, digital elements, and more. The term "mixed media" emphasizes the diverse and eclectic nature of this art form.
Artists who work in mixed media often experiment with different materials, textures, and methods to create multi-dimensional and visually engaging pieces. The combination of various elements can add depth, complexity, and layers of meaning to the artwork. Mixed media art encourages artists to break free from traditional boundaries and explore new possibilities for creativity and self-expression.
Common techniques and approaches include collage, assemblage, layering, photomontage, and combining traditional and digital media. Mixed media art allows artists to blend different styles, materials, and techniques to create artworks that are rich in visual and tactile qualities.
