Folk art is a name given to the art form which is produced primarily by people from an indigenous population or peasants. The basic characterization to be noticed here is the lack of any aesthetic value for these paintings are made with the idea of representation and more often than not, the paintings are totally utilitarian and decorative. In addition, in folk art, the measures of proportion and perspective are not taken into consideration but done in a na�ve style. Some of the terms which can be closely related to Folk Art are Outsider Art, Na�ve Art and Self-Taught Art.

Folk art encompasses a wide array of art styles with the common connotation of not adhering to any artistic norms. The proportions are done to represent something as it is rather than present the subject in an artistic manner. Folk art is generally surmised as excluded from mainstream art movements but there have been instances where high-society patrons have been known to bestow their kindness on it.

The media used in folk art can be of many types such as wood, clay, paper, metal and many more. But in the chance that traditional materials are not available, then modern media is used. This connotes giving a modern feel to traditional art forms. Folk art is generally used as a chance to convey a culture’s shared ideas and beliefs to the public at large. Any such paintings can be termed as folk art.
