Created by Guillermo Lorca

The visual arts are art forms that create works which are primarily visual in nature, such as ceramics, drawing, painting, sculpture, architecture, printmaking, modern visual arts (photography, video, and film-making), design and crafts. These definitions should not be taken too strictly as many artistic disciplines (performing arts, conceptual art, textile arts) involve aspects of the visual arts as well as arts of other types. visual.bajaartists.com will use this category for Fine art, photography, crafts and film.

bajaartists.com is planning to add other visual art disciplines including graphic design, fashion design and interior design.

Fine Art

A more detail explanation of each category;

 

Fine Art – Describes an art form developed primarily for aesthetics and/or concept rather than utility. Today, the fine arts commonly include visual and performing art forms, such as painting, sculpture, music, dance, theatre, architecture, photography and printmaking. However, visual.bajaartists.com will apply this term as museums fine art or art gallery art. Historically, the fine arts were limited to painting, sculpture, architecture and engraving. visual.bajaartists.com will list two of the four.

  • Paintings
  • Sculptures

Photography – Is the process, activity and art of creating still or moving pictures by recording radiation on a sensitive medium, such as a photographic film, or an electronic sensor. Light patterns reflected or emitted from objects activate a sensitive chemical or electronic sensor during a timed exposure, usually through a photographic lens in a device known as a camera that also stores the resulting information chemically or electronically.

  • Photographers
  • Digital Artists

Handcrafts – Also known as craft work or simply crafts, is a type of work where useful and decorative devices are made completely by hand or using only simple tools. Usually the term is applied to traditional means of making goods. The individual artisanship of the items is a paramount criterion, such items often have cultural and/or religious significance. Items made by mass production or machines are not handicrafts.

Usually, what distinguishes the term handicraft from the frequently used category arts and crafts is a matter of intent: handicraft items are intended to be used, worn, etc, having a purpose beyond simple decoration. Handicrafts are generally considered more traditional work, created as a necessary part of daily life, while arts and crafts implies more of a hobby pursuit and a demonstration/perfection of a creative technique. Although In practical terms, the categories have a great deal of overlap, bajaartists.com will focus only on Handcrafted art.

Film – Encompasses individual motion pictures, the field of film as an art form, and the motion picture industry. Films (also referred to as movies or motion pictures) are produced by recording images from the world with cameras, or by creating images using animation techniques or visual effects. bajaartists.com will use this term for motion pictures including the cinema, commercials and the movies.

  • Actors / Actresses
