Found Art, better known as Found object/Junk Art or the Readymade, describes art created from the use of objects that are not usually viewed as art, because they already have a non-art function.

Marcel Duchamp of the early 20th century 'found' himself famous after Fountain, 1917. Since then, art became more diverse and wide range.
