What is Abstract Art?
Abstract art is an artistic style that does not attempt to represent an accurate depiction of a visual reality but instead achieves its effect through the use of shapes, colours, forms, and gestural marks. Abstract art, distinguished by the use of form, colour, and line, does not depict physical objects or scenes but rather expresses art with emotions and ideas. Abstract art has remained popular among both artists and viewers since its inception in the early 1900s in the works of artists such as Hilma af Klint and Wassily Kandinsky.

Abstract art is distinguished by the fact that it is a non-representational practise, which means that it deviates from accurate representation. Depending on the type of abstract art, this can be slight, partial, or complete. Total abstraction, for example, distinguishes geometric abstraction and lyrical abstraction, whereas partial abstraction distinguishes figurative art. Furthermore, even realistic art can contain elements of abstraction.

The subjective approach of abstract art in contemporary art corresponds with similar approaches in the social sciences, particularly in philosophy. Abstract art seeks to demonstrate the subjective nature of reality through the use of colour, memory, and visual sensation. This is one of the most important aspects of abstract art, and it is one of the reasons it is so popular today.
