Abstract art, is definitely one of the most visually interesting styles in the art world. The style itself doesn’t seem to have any restraint, if anything it’s a colorful mess of fun. Usually abstract art can (and cannot) be characterized by shapes, forms, and colors that create more of a visual language than a clear cut image. You usually won’t see detailed figures, or any one thing that defines the picture as a whole. What you see is usually a visual that is left to the viewers imagination. The beauty of the abstract style is really that the viewer is in control of what message they receive.

You’ve probably seen or heard references of people standing in a museum looking at an image, and one person goes, “This piece really moves me, I can see the passion through the linear strokes the artist created. It’s a tragically romantic, with an essence of sexuality.” while a second person may say, “I see a rowboat, and a man lost at sea.” The beauty of abstract art is its against-the-grain-attitude. People will interpret Abstract pieces differently, and instead of an image of a fruit basket, or a bouquet of flowers these pieces challenge the viewer to dig deeper into themselves for meaning.

It’s an introspective challenge to find meaning, or maybe it’s not meant to have any meaning at all. That’s how it’s beautiful and audacious. In a way, lots of artists won’t challenge their audience, they’ll present a beautiful image and the viewer knows exactly what it is. But this style, it pushes you to think deeper, to experience more, to find meaning in it, or to choose to not find meaning at all.

Not only are these pieces visually intriguing, they look stunning in living spaces. If you’re having help visualizing some of these piece we’ll give you a few examples.
