The author

A NIFT, Delhi graduate and an art enthusiast , I am a painter with an individual style. I have always been an avid follower of art but acknowledged it as my true calling only recently, when I plunged head down into the world of painting....never to emerge. Painting is not a mere vocation for me , it's a passion.From depicting my innermost feelings to creating a colourful world as I see it to recreating pieces that catch my fancy, painting gives me an outlet to express what is beyond words.

Overview

The Basics of Abstract Painting You Should Know

Abstract painting is considered one of the purest forms of expression, as it allows its creator to freely communicate visually without the constraint of forms found in objective reality. The approaches found within abstract painting encompass many movements including German Expressionism, Fauvism, Cubism, and Abstract Expressionism.

A Brief History


Abstract paintings emerged as a departure from Classical and traditional academic painting in Europe during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Many renowned artists prior to this time painted following the methods of classical realism, which used realistic perspective, shading, and other techniques in order to create historical scenes and subject matter.

Crucial to abstract art is the rejection of three-dimensional perspective, which is found in both Fauvism and Orphism. Fauvism depicts objects with intense arbitrary color, while Orphism is characterized by bright patches of color.
