What we know as Painting consists of an artistic manifestation of a visual character, which uses a conglomerate of materials and techniques to represent on a given surface, a graphic composition according to certain aesthetic values.

Painting combines elements such as colors, shapes, textures, balance, harmony, light, perspective and movement. With this combination it seeks to transmit to the public, a beautiful experience.

A large section of the history of painting in both the East and the West is dominated by religious art. Some examples of this kind of painting range from artworks depicting mythological figures, to biblical scenes such as those covering the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel, and scenes from the life of Buddha, among many other images of religious character.
