Kinetic pointillism is an art movement founded by Robert Ottesen, a celebrated artist. Though its founder intended the movement for adult artists, it eventually became a passion for adolescents. According to Robert Ottesen, adults have been conditioned, over many years, to paint in certain ways. Because their adult minds were less neuroplastic, they were not able to adapt to a new style. Whereas the minds of children are free from conditioning, they are receptive to new ideas and open to change. When adults create artwork for fame and popularity, children create it for self-satisfaction. Most adult artists create artwork for pecuniary gain, whereas children naturally create artwork for joy and playfulness. The Kinetic Pointillism art movement has become so popular that it has already been listed among the great art movements of the world and has also become a part of fine art history.
