I wanted to thank you for your online store, MisterArt.com, and particularly for the speedy processing and shipment of my order. I know that my order wasn't a large one, but as I am physically disabled...and the swiftness of your shipping is invaluable to me as it is very difficult for me to get out and "shop" as most others can.

Styles & Periods
Conceptual Art

Conceptual Art is a style in which the expression of ideas or concepts is paramount, and the use of traditional artistic skills is often omitted all together. At times these works are integrated with sculptural or painterly materials, but the central thrust of the movement is that the ideas are the artwork, and are not dependent on the physical outcome or a presence in museums or galleries. This emphasis of idea over object is essential in Conceptual Art. It was developed in the late 1960s with the theoretically driven work of Minimalist Sol LeWitt, and came into bloom in the 1970s in the work of Germans Joseph Beuys and Hans Haacke, and Americans John Baldessari and Joseph Kosuth. Data, science, information, words and language became the new media for these artists. In 1970 the Museum of Modern Art presented a show titled “Information” co-curated by Joseph Kosuth. His work focused on the meanings of concepts that were familiar parts of everyday life, such as the chair and painting. He presented signs of these subjects, such as the dictionary definition, and a two- and three-dimensional representation of them. The work of Conceptual artists continues to span into the 21st century, and can include Performance art, Minimalism, Semiotics, Process and Earth-Art.

Latest Product Reviews

I have never had a pencil last this long... It has been 10 months and still haven't used the other two. I am a full time student and constantly lose/break pencils. The grip, weight and smoothness is outstanding. Whenever I forget this pencil at home, I want to kick myself. Best purchase in a very long time.

This is better than Gorilla Glue - if you've got the time and patience. All the same, this is my to-go-to glue. I wouldn't go for any other glue!

These paints seem a little high priced.
