This is a genre that explores unrealistic subjects but may also refer to the fantastical way in which a real scene is interpreted. Fantasy art is often rooted in mythology, folklore or religion. The art style is often fanciful, dreamlike and highly imaginative. Fantasy fiction novels and fairy tales are very often the inspiration for this genre of art. Alternatively the artist's imagination may run wild and create entirely unique scenes. Within this genre, artwork can often be highly detailed, especially when based on a literary context. In complete contrast, naïve painting styles are also popular for their childlike charm, befitting more imaginative dreamlike scenes. Fantasy art is a broad genre that encompasses folk art and naïve art.
