We use many different styles in art.
Realistic, abstract, non-objective... as artists we have a variety of methods we can use to experiment how we communicate our ideas. In this clip from Disney's Inside Out, the variety of abstract styles is shown in a very creative way! We can represent one idea (or in this case, each character) in MANY different ways. Some simple, some more complex.
