Due to a State of Emergency at our Texas headquarters, there may be a 24-hour delay in processing orders and our customer service support is limited today.
We appreciate your understanding as we work through the extreme flooding in the area.

I've ordered from Misterart.com a couple of times so far and have yet to be disappointed. The quality is exactly what I expect and the prices are even better.

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 apply these paints in small plastic bottles and add a metal tip to outline and apply. The only thing I dislike is you never know which color will change to a different color after baking. Mostly I use the Pebeo 150. I find they do not change color after baking. Another problem is they do not have it in white,first time I used what looked like white, it turned ivory and even looked more yellow than ivory. I just wish there were more art suppliers who carry it. Most of the time I order it.

This is good stuff; however, it is only good for a few pulls and tear strength is very low.
- deville composites in san diego
I paint with a knife and I paint a lot. I have been using Galleria exclusively for several years. I think I can say with confidence that there is not a better paint to use if you paint with a knife. I'm new to Mister Art. I'm sure their service will be as good as their paint.
