Post Modern Art

Post Modern art is a certain shift from modern art. The revision of material and influences that feature are diverse and mark a certain departure from modern art. There is a sense of radical freedom provided to the artist who works with a certain history of the material and art itself. In the Euro-American sense, it emerged and developed with a lot of controversial elements in practice. The area of what is considered as art is also modified, in terms of not only aesthetic and stylization, but equally so of its ambition to be a work of art. Design, photography and video becomes an important aspect of art making. The works of Pushpamala N, Thukral and Tagra are some artists who have a strong sense of post-modern freedom in their works.
