Abstract Art

The time of posters is over, more and more we are putting up artistic photography. Abstract art in particular, leaves a lot to the imagination. What do you see in a Piet Mondrian? Abstract art shows an image that is not figurative. In other words; you do not have to immediately see what it represents. It is not an image from the sensory perceptible reality, not a figurative representation.

Modern art abstract

Modern abstract art by abstract painters or well-known artists? With a beautiful art painting, modern or abstract as a wall decoration for your home or as art for your office, your living environment will certainly receive the attention it deserves.

Abstract art sometimes leads to confusion for people, but it offers the opportunity to unleash your own imagination and images. The question: what do you see in it arises. That is what makes abstract art a special art movement.

The presentation of abstract art was a true revolution in the twentieth century. Well-known artists who created abstract art include the Russian Wassily Kandinsky, the Dutch Piet Mondriaan, the American Jackson Pollock and the Dutch / American Willem de Kooning.

What is Abstract Art

Imagine a painting. A painting consisting of lines and surfaces. Some areas are coloured, others are colourless. It forms a composition that does not immediately make you think of something, but indirectly it does. It makes you imagine something. For example, you can see a tree or a road network seen from above. Actually, the performance that you think about or the feeling you get with it is very personal. That’s abstract art. An image is displayed in shape, line and colour where you as a viewer can imagine ‘something’.

Abstract art mainly consists of various elements that form an (abstract) representation together. These elements are expressed, among other things, in shape, colour, energy, symbolism, rhythm and contrast. This form of modern art emerged as a movement in painting and sculpture at the beginning of the twentieth century. But actually, abstract art has been around for much longer. Until far into antiquity, abstract shapes appeared on, for example, utensils. In fact, abstract art is far ahead of figurative art.

Abstract art consists of two trends: reality depicted in abstract geometric shapes such as circles and squares. And a representation rendered in certain shapes and colours in response to impressions and feelings of the artist.

Abstract art prints

Abstract art still has many enthusiasts. Many people choose abstract paintings, photographic works and sculptures for their home, matching the interior. The step to buy abstract is made quite quickly in this day and age, both offline and online. Photography (photo art) in particular has taken off in the present time when it comes to abstract images. For those who would also like this on the wall, Humiio offers an exclusive collection of art photography of abstract representations that are an artistic addition to the interior and the atmosphere in a home. In black and white photography or colour and beautifully framed (fine art framing).

By hanging an abstract work of art on the wall yourself, you create a more personal interior. And that doesn’t have to be Picasso. Incidentally, he is the artist who played a major role when we talk about abstract art. The Spanish Pablo Picasso (1881-1973) initially created art that was a forerunner of abstract art. Between 1907 and 1917, Picasso painted many works with geometric shapes. This was later called Cubism. Picasso is even seen as the inventor of this modern cubist art movement. An example of this is the work “Les Demoiselles D” Avignon “(1907).

However, the Spanish artist continued to experiment and adopted a new style, Surrealism. These works evolved into the well-known abstract works of Picasso in the mid-twentieth century. Actually, it is this style that still typifies Picasso today. Many people refer to this abstract period in Picasso’s work as the Picasso style. A random example: Femme assise (seated woman), a work on display at the Museum of Modern Art in New York. It is worth going to see if you want to delve into abstract art in a different way, especially if you also like to bring this form of art into your home.
