Major art movements developed and fostered in extensive ways throughout the United States include Abstract Expressionism in various forms, Pop Art, including its West and East Coast variants, Minimalism, Conceptual Art, Neo-Expressionism, Graffiti and Street Art, plus various post-modern iterations of these many types. In the modern and contemporary sphere, the United States has cultivated a powerful influence upon the worldwide visual culture, due to the hegemony of its economic and political systems.
