A successful art career takes time, patience and a self-determination to succeed. We are limiting our evaluation to abstract art only. We have considered artists that consistently show their art and who are dedicated to becoming better.
Abstract painting is viewed as a key style contained within the Modern Art movement. Pioneered by many forward-thinking 20th-century painters and celebrated for its avant-garde aesthetic, the abstract genre represents a pivotal moment in modernism. Abstract painting rejected the “rules” of traditional art. Rather than focus on figurative and representational depictions, abstract painters placed emphasis on color, composition, and emotion. Similarly, instead of concentrating solely on the completed works, these artists placed importance in the process.
There is a specific order of abstract artist as the number shows. Here are our abstract art stars or top 10 abstract artists to keep your eye on as of this date.
