Art Syle: Abstract


Transformation (Blue) by Andrew Watts

We’re taking on a big style today: Abstract! Just like its name, Abstract Art can be a challenge to define. Here are a few things that may help you wrap your head around Abstract Art:

  • Abstraction is an art form that does not rely on imagery to convey a message. Abstract art relies on form, color, and line instead.
  • The Abstract Art movement was fueled by advancements and techniques discovered and made popular during the Impressionism, Expressionism, and Romanticism movements
  • Abstract Art exists in a range, so they are many different forms and degrees of abstraction
  • Famous Abstract Artists: Jackson Pollock, Henri Matisse, and Wassily Kandinsky

Here are some examples of the art in UGallery’s Abstract Art:
