As a matter of fact, there are numerous kinds of visual arts and artistic works may be made using plethora of materials, techniques and media. Some artists similar to cartoonists and painters are working in 2D by applying a medium to any flat surface as their canvas and then create an image. Other artists on the other hand like architects and sculptors are working in a 3D space, by carving, molding and combining all the materials to come up with an artistic project. With video artists and photographers though, they are using their gears and equipment to record and capture images in an artistic fashion.
