Hi, guys. If someone described a painting as "warped" what does that mean?

It can also be figurative, implying that something is very unusual, often in a negative way. One can have a warped sense of humour, which is like saying you have a dark or unusual sense of humour. If the subject of the painting were for example dark or gruesome, it could be described as warped.

Thanks! So warped is literal. Chueco is literally when something presents some damage like you described.

Hi Carlos. Warped is similar to the word "chueco". In my experience, wood tends to warp (change shape over time) due to different weather conditions. I have experienced this with canvas art since it uses wood. Other things that can warp easily are vinyl records since they can warp (change shape) due to heat.
