Painting abstract art is a deep form of expressive art known by a lot of creative people. It is an art that could mean one thing to one person and something else to another. It is one of the most ancient forms of art as that was introduced in mid 20s. Abstract art and its entire process can be said to be dynamic, physical, emotional and intellectual. To an abstract artist, the very art to us is – all about freedom and joy. We love the eccentricity, dreamlike quality and the fantasy they can bring to any abstract setting or water colour. As an abstract artist or someone looking up to becoming one, you have to learn how to give your creative intuition free reign whenever you start out on any new painting and be able to wait to see what emerges. Abstract art takes more than merely putting colour on a canvas, or pouring colours on it. It involves much more than looking for something within the paint as it incorporates itself. It is indeed a blend of what is known as intuitive painting; this is what actually makes the art more in form and controlled. To paint a good abstract […]

Art has since evolved greatly over the years; I personally think art is all about perception. What can be beautiful to one can be bizarre to another. Art has never been known to have any limitations, from the different paint brushes used to drawing on canvas to incorporating other small objects on paintings, art can simply be considered simple and yet very beautiful. Gone are the days where people used to seat for hours on end pausing for a painting or a drawing. All that has simply been replaced by one click of the camera thereby making traditional art not appreciated as it used to be. Contemporary art is quite different from traditional art but the motive behind it remains the same, expression. It has always been used as a way to express your feelings and emotions and to some people clutching a paint brush and allowing your hand to make different brushes over a canvas is simply magical and can be termed as therapeutic. A lot of artists can argue that contemporary art is not as passionate as what the Great Picasso painted and to some point amateurish but here are a few reasons why contemporary art is cool. […]

We can use art to share our experience in the world we live in. Art gives people the opportunity to communicate very intimate concepts that cannot be communicated by just words.

What is art and what is design? Most people usually find it hard to distinguish between art and design. This may due to the fact that the two usually have meanings that are so close. A simple explanation would describe art as an expression of the human thought through a number of channels. Design on its part can be defined simply as the logical arrangement of suitable things. Graspinging the differences between art and design when the two are independent of each other might be easy but it gets difficult when the two are intertwined. There are those who will argue that art cannot exist without design while, there are those who don’t agree to this notion. Still there are those who buy to the idea that art and design are independent of each other but sometimes exist symbiotically. We take a closer look at the two between art and design to find out the difference between the two.

Learn to Admire Portrait Art

April 16, 2018
by developer
For you to value a piece of artwork you must first need to understand it. For you to easily understand a piece of artwork it may be best for you to first explore its context or where it is coming from. Doing an investigation on the context or background of the artists helps you understand what artist involved in that piece of artwork. How can you assess the context of an artwork? By knowing the date that a piece of artwork was done you can easily trace how it was made. You may also understand if there was any difficulty involved i.e. artwork pieces that may have been done before the advent of photography (circa 1860). An artist doing artwork during this period must have found more difficulty than contemporary portrait artists. It is also good to understand the difference between a painting that is abstract or representational. There are those paintings that are usually wholly abstract or can organically be abstract or simply representational (it is symbolic and most of the content in it easily recognizable).
