Abstract canvas wall art is a departure from traditional painting styles of realism and impressionism. Evidence of abstract painting styles have existed for centuries as evident in the works of Pablo Picasso, Henry Matisse, Amedeo Modigliani, and Georges Braque.
Modern artists such as Jackson Pollock and Piet Mondrian followed suit. Artists use abstract art as a way to express themselves minus boundaries of traditional painting techniques dictated by traditional art training.
Abstract and contemporary art are ideal for today’s lifestyles, tastes, and home designs. Urbanites prefer buying abstract or contemporary wall art to go with the rest of their modern furnishings in a city apartment.
