What is abstract art?

Abstract art is a type of visual art that does not represent and accurate depiction of visual reality. Instead, it uses elements such as colour, shape, line, form and texture to create a composition that can be enjoyed for its own sake. Abstract art is often characterised by its use of non-representational imagery, meaning that is does not depict any recognisable objects or scenes from the real world.

Abstract art has a long and rich history, dating back to the early twentieth century. Some of the most famous abstract artists include Wassily Kandinsky Piet Mondrain and Pablo Picasso. Abstract art has also been used in a variety of other creative fields, such as music, dance and literature.

There are many different types of abstract art, each with its own unique style and approach. Some common types of abstract art include:


1 Non-objective art: This type of abstract art does not have any reference to the real world and is purely abstract in form.

2 Geometric abstraction: This type of abstract art uses geometric shapes and lines to create compositions.

3 Biomorphic abstraction: This type of abstract art uses organic shapes and forms that are inspired by nature.

4 Action painting: This type of abstract art is created by pouring or dripping paint onto a canvas and letting it flow and drip into different shapes and patterns.

5 Lyrical abstraction: This type of abstract art is characterised by its use of soft, flowing lines and shapes.

6 Colour field painting: This type of abstract art focuses on the use of colour to create compositions.

Abstract art can be enjoyed on many different levels. For some people, it is simply a visual pleasure to look at. For others, it can be a way to connect with their emotions or to explore their subconscious mind. Abstract art can be used to express ideas or to challenge traditional ways of thinking. For me, I love painting and displaying abstract art that is visually pleasing to look at.

No matter how you choose to appreciate it, abstract art is a powerful and expressive form of art that can enrich your life in many ways.
