ELI5: Explain Like I'm 5


Cubism is a type of art that uses different shapes, colors, and lines to make pictures. Instead of showing a real life scene, cubist artists try to show the same scene from different angles all at the same time. They try to show motion and energy in their pieces too. Cubist artwork usually looks like it is made up of many pieces that don't quite fit together, but it all comes together to make a beautiful picture.
