Genres Guide

An introduction to the Genres feature within the Apollo app

  • This is the Genres section of the Apollo app. You can browse works based on genres of art such as cinemagraphs, photography, paintings, abstract architecture etc.


Currently we have the following genres (more to come) :
  • Abstract - Art that does not attempt to represent an accurate depiction of a visual reality but instead use shapes, colors, forms and gestural marks to achieve its effect.

  • Architecture - Reflects how we present ourselves across the earth's landscape, and, like other expressive mediums, it changes with styles, technologies and cultural adaptations.

  • Cinemagraphs - Still photographs in which a minor and repeated movement occurs, forming a video clip.

  • Classics - A masterpiece is a creation in any area of the arts that has been given much critical praise, especially one that is considered the greatest work of a person's career or to a work of outstanding creativity, skill, profundity, or workmanship.

  • Mixed Media - Artwork in which more than one medium or material has been employed.

  • Paintings - A painting is an image (artwork) created using pigments (color) on a surface (ground) such as paper or canvas. The pigment may be in a wet form, such as paint, or a dry form, such as pastels.

  • Photography - Fine-art photography is photography created in line with the vision of the photographer as artist, using photography as a medium for creative expression. The goal of fine-art photography is to express an idea, a message, or an emotion.

  • Scenery - Having, providing, or relating to a pleasing or beautiful view of natural scenery (such as mountains, hills, valleys, etc.)

  • Street Art - Street art is one of the most hybrid forms of artistic expression in our modern world because its purpose is to draw upon what the viewers know and manipulate the physicality of the subject to make their point.

  • Video - Video art is an art form which relies on using video technology as a visual medium.
