Abstract art is known as art that is not an accurate representation of a form or object. What this means is that you will not see a definite shape or figure in the art, you will have to look at it closely and interpret what you see. The art itself is differed in many ways including color and form. The artist sees something in the painting and artwork.
There are many different styles and forms to abstract art. There are three forms of abstract art that stand out and have become famous over the years. These forms have been made famous certain artists. These forms include, Cubism, Neoplasticism, and Abstract Expressionism.
Cubism is the more modern movement in the world of abstract art. The artwork is created by using an analytical approach to the object and painting the basic geometric solid of the subject. Artist that followed this form of abstract art expressed themselves by showing different views of an object that have been put together in a way that you can not actually see real life. This period was started in Paris in 1908 and it was said that it reached its peak in 1914. Cubism continued until the 1920’s. Abstract art painters of this time include such people as Fernand Leger and Francis Picabia.
The next period in the world of abstract art is Neoplasticism. This period was marked by the belief that art should not be the reproduction of real objects. It should instead be the expression of the absolutes of life. According these artists the only absolutes in this world were vertical and horizontal lines and the primary colors. The artist of this period was Theo van Doesburg.
Abstract Expressionism is a style of painting in which the painter shows his personality through pure and simply spontaneity. This has been said to more of a study of color and brush stroke. One of the most popular artists that used abstract expressionism was Jackson Pollack. He was called an action painter in the world of abstract art. He would drip and pour his paint to create his work.
