Mixed media art by Adam Niklewicz.

In visual art, mixed media is an artwork in which more than one medium or material has been employed.[1][2] Assemblages and collages are two common examples of art using different media that will make use of different materials including cloth, paper, wood and found objects.[citation needed]

Mixed media art, a visual art, is distinguished from multimedia art which combines visual art with non-visual elements, such as recorded sound, literature, drama, dance, motion graphics, music, or interactivity.[3][4]
