Impressionism, Modernism, Abstract Art, Photo-Realists to name a few. 
Recently Pop Art debuted in the 1960’s and now at the beginning of the 21st Century, a socially aware artist with a vision is making a difference in art history.
The pioneer artist of this new form of art, David Jakupca, calls this type of 
expression "Environmental Art" and is universally acknowledged as 
the "Father of the Environmental Art" movement.
