Unique aesthetic

Abstract art emerged from the artists’ desire to create works unrelated and unrestrained by visual references in reality. A majority of the twentieth century’s most iconic and famous abstract paintings were created by artists who sought and found new ways of producing art that will encompass the fundamental changes taking place in technology, science, and philosophy in the West. The name of the genre evokes the notion of being detached or abstracted from something and it was chosen to mark the desire of first abstract painters to free their works from the restrictions of reality and depict imaginary in art. The abstract painting comes in a variety of shapes and forms and can be partly tied to existing visual references or represent a complete departure from an accurate representation of reality. This versatile art genre uses colors, shapes, forms and gestural marks to achieve a unique aesthetic and in many cases, a deep emotional response from the viewers.

Abstract art style

Artist expression

Relying therefore mostly on lines, shapes, and color, abstraction is often the expression of the artist’s thoughts and emotions. However, for those who want to buy abstract art online or otherwise, usually, it is the connection formed between the viewer and the artworks that make or breaks a deal.

Emotions
