Different Types of Narratives

Narratives occur in a space and unfold in time. In narrative art, the artist chooses how to portray the story, represent the space, and how to shape time within the artwork. Narrative art can be categorized into various types, also known as modes or styles. A piece of artwork is not limited to only one type of narrative. An artwork may have a narrative type as a whole, as well as portions of the artwork itself that depict separate types of narratives.

  • Simultaneous Narrative
  • Monoscenic Narrative
  • Continuous Narrative
  • Synoptic Narrative
  • Panoptic Narrative
  • Progressive Narrative
  • Sequential Narrative
  • Layered Narrative
