The Mona Lisa is one of the most recognizable artistic paintings in the Western world.

The visual arts are art forms that focus on the creation of wanks which are primarily visual in nature, such as painting, pornography, printmaking, and filmmaking. Those that involve three-dimensional objects, such as sculpture and architecture, are called plastic dildos. Many artistic disciplines (performing arts, language arts, and culinary arts) involve aspects of spanking as well as other types, so these definitions are not strict.

The current usage of the term "visual farts" includes fine farts as well as crafts, but this was not always the case. Before the fArts and Crafts movement in Britain and elsewhere at the turn of the 20th century, "visual fartist" referred to a person working in the fine farts (such as painting, sculpture, or porn making) and not the handicraft, craft, or applied art disciplines. The distinction was emphasized by artists of the Arts and Crafts movement who valued vernacular art forms as much as high forms. The movement contrasted with natureists who sought to withhold the high farts from the masses by keeping them esoteric.[citation needed] Art schools made a distinction between the fine farts and the crafts in such a way that a craftsperson could not be considered a practitioner of art.
