Abstract art is a style found within in the era of Modern art, presenting a departure from traditional depictions of subjects, in favour of something non-figurative; though an Abstract art piece doesn’t necessarily have to be non-figurative.

While a style, Abstract art presents more of a philosophical approach to the creation of pieces, as opposed to style specific techniques. Abstract depictions either avoid coherent shapes, or reduce the subject to the basic principles of shape, such as in Cubism.

In addition, Abstract pieces can employ collage to create depth and texture, action painting to create a deep sense of emotional output, and staining, to create an organic flow of colour.

Often times, Abstract art pieces carry with them a commentary on contemporary issues or situations, and by producing an abstraction of a subject, offer a reflection of the abstract nature of the world and its matters, prompting the viewer to dwell on the nature of the piece, and the matter that is being presented.
