Non-art majors often have a difficult time differentiating between art movements, but they’ll probably have an easier time after browsing these Outmane Amahou posters. In a series of 17 prints, Amahou denotes discernible qualities about each movement using simplistic graphics not unlike ones you’d see on airplane instructions. His posters often reference masterpieces from each time period, so prepare to see the Mona Lisa’s hands or a sideways urinal as symbols to convey specific art movements.

Among the periods and styles covered by Outmane Amahou are Pop Art, Cubism, Surrealism, Dadaism, Expressionism, Futurism, Neo-Realism, Fauvism, De Stijl, Post-Impressionism, the Renaissance and a lot more. Besides being neat wall adornment, the posters can actually come in handy as teaching aids.
