Abstract art can be represented in multiple forms such as a painting or a sculpture. The art does not portray a person, place or a thing related to the natural world. One of the unique characteristics of abstract art is that it is quite distinguished from what is known as conceptual realism as it does not depict objects of the natural world either in a melodramatic or a distorted shape.
The idea of abstract art came into force at the apex of 20th century. Initially, it came out as an extraordinary form of the art which broke the chain of traditional art. Exploring colors and forms constitute the very essence of abstract art. The foundations of abstract painting are associated with what is known as post-impressionism-a movement in France that garnered popularity right at the turn of twentieth century. The very idea behind any work relating to the abstract art is not exactly to depict a picture. It touches the atmosphere itself. Abstract art is synonymous with non-objective art.
