Figurative art is considered one of the more modern art techniques, in comparison to some of the earlier traditional styles such as fine art. The main attributes of figurative art constitute drawings or paintings of the human body. The art is often presented through real-life depiction rather than surrealism.

History of Figurative Art
The first examples of figurative art date back as far as 40,000 years ago with a painting of cave Lubang Jeriji Saléh on the Indonesian island of Borneo. However, this is not considered the figurative art we know today which was later introduced in the 20th century.
Since the emergence of figurative art in the mid 20th century, we can see the evolution and development of a style that is much more modern in comparison to the figurative approach which was first discovered, showing brighter colours with more detail.
Figurative art was first introduced from Greece as art that encapsulates the real world, in particular, the human form. This then further influenced contemporary art styles such as Conceptualism and Abstract art. Renowned figurative artists include the great Picasso and Alberto Giacometti.
