What is Abstract Art?
Abstract art is defined as art that does not aim to accurately depict a subject, but instead uses shapes, colours, forms and lines to create a non-realistic composition.
The term ‘abstract’ means to separate or distance something from another thing, and this is what abstract art is all about. Abstract art pulls away from traditional art that depicts a literal or representational image; whether that be an object, figure or landscape. Instead, it simplifies or reimagines those literal references, or does not attempt to represent any literal reference at all.
There are two types of abstract art: concrete art, which has no basis of literal representation or symbolic meaning, and non-objective art, which aims to depict a sense of simplicity, spirituality or purity.
The History of Abstract Art
Abstract art has been an integral branch of modern art since the early 1900s, pioneered by artists such as Wassily Kandinsky. It can be stylistically linked to Surrealism, Cubism, and Fauvism, and can be said to have been influenced by Post-Impressionism, which happened just on the cusp of the 20th century.
Abstract art today can be found in two-dimensional or three-dimensional forms. Here at 1Wall, we have a wide variety of modern abstract wall art that will incorporate this artistic style effortlessly into your interiors.
