It's Monday morning. How do you typically start the day?

Once you get to work, what kind of employee are you?

How do you like to unwind after a hard day?

You got into a fight with your friend via text. It's clearly a misunderstanding. You:

What's your ideal reading material?

Cats or dogs?

What one word would your friends most likely use to describe you?

And finally: How would you describe yourself?

Abstract Expressionism

Abstract Expressionism

Abstract expressionism is a post World War II art movement in American painting, developed in New York in the 40's. It was the first American movement that achieved international influence.
In this form of art, the artist expresses himself only through color and uses no objects to convey his message. Which can sometimes be misread and wrongly perceived as messy and random.

Just like that, You're often misunderstood. You seem wild and outgoing to acquaintances, but you're actually thoughtful, and much deeper than others think you are. You only open up to people you trust, who are few.

Cubism

Cubism

Cubism was a revolutionary style developed in the early 20's by Pablo Picasso and Georges Braques. It is considered the most influential art movement of the 20th century.
The Cubist style emphasizes the flat and two-dimensional surface and abandons more traditional techniques in order to reinvent itself.

Just like this form of art, you're too considerate and objective. You love to learn about how the world works, and broaden your horizons. In confrontations, you prefer to try to see things from all perspectives.

Minimalism

Minimalism

Minimalism is characterized by simplicity, plain geometric configurations and industrially processed materials. In this form of art the artist just keeps things a simple as possible - and that's the beauty of it.
Just like this form of art, you too like to keep things simple. You're annoyed by those who are too brash and showy. You're not interested in chasing trends, because you know only real substance will last.

Dada

Dada

Dadaism (Dada) was an art movement of the European avant-garde in the early 20th century.
The movement rejected the standards in art and developed an anti-art as a form of mockery and criticism.

Constructivism

Constructivism

Constructivism was most influential modern art movement which flourished in Russia in the 20th century.
Constructivists tried to replace art's traditional concern with composition with a focus on construction.

You're a no nonsense type. You don't care for people who are silly, flighty, or fickle. Some may criticize you for being rigid, but you see yourself as moral and consistent.

Surrealism

Surrealism

Surrealism is a movement that began in the early 20's. In Surrealism, the artists creates weird and illogical scenes with photographic precision, which results in strange but breathtaking creations.

You're a wild card. No one really knows what to expect from you, and you love to keep them guessing. Step outside of your comfort zone? Please, you barely even had one to begin with.

Impressionism

Impressionism

Impressionism is a 19th century art movement that originated with a group of Paris-based artists
Impressionist art is small, thin, yet visible and accurate, with emphasis on human perception and experience, and unusual visual angles.
Some people may see you as ordinary, but there's more to you than meets the eye. Your friends know that you're honest, kind and sincere. You're a good listener, and you love being outdoors, basking in nature!

Fauvism

Fauvism

Fauvism is the style of a French group called "the wild beasts" from the early 20th. Their works emphasized painterly qualities and strong colors.

Just like them, you're a bold, bright, outgoing person, and a social butterfly. You have a generally positive outlook on things and meet each new day with excitement and passion!
