21st Century Abstraction Artists

Abstract art allowed us to start experiments with perception, the forms of objects. Artists were able to question all the classical techniques and canons. Modern abstract artists are also pushing the boundaries of consciousness, creating a new reality.

Speed ​​Inspiration by Christine Baker

After removing the adhesive tape, the lower layers become visible, and all irregularities are removed. The result is a spectacular multi-colored pattern.

Ephemeral creations of Sarah Spitler
With bright splashes on canvas, the artist tries to show mess, chaos, imbalance. They attract her because of the impossibility of controlling people. There is a destructive spirit in her every work, they capture with their power. Her works also talk about the relativity of life situations, the ephemeral nature of what is happening.

Futuristic creativity of R. Hardeiva
Robert is inspired by the works of Picasso, Dali, Kandinsky, he also adheres to surrealism and argues that in his work life’s unpredictability is revealed.

It reflects the ideas of reincarnation and the wealth of the soul.

Although the basis of the work is dark tones, Eli always adds brightness, allowing you to look at the picture from a new perspective.

 

 

Abstractions from F. Lekyo
In the works of an abstract artist it is difficult to consider specific faces or objects, he paints everything with his own symbolism, signs, showing objects from a completely different angle. Through his work, he seeks to expand conscious boundaries. It is possible to guess the theme of the picture only through the names.

 

 

 

Hypnotizing stories of H. Parla
A mixture of collage and graffiti turns the artist’s work into stylish abstractions. Graffiti inspires him, and his first drawings were created on the streets of the city. Now, Jose does not break the law by drawing on paper and exhibiting the fruits of his labors in galleries. He refers to the paintings as a capsule of time, trying to reflect his memories and impressions in them. In his work he uses inscriptions, posters, layers of paint.
