About abstact art
Abstract art is a form of artwork that is not drawn from a recognizable reality but instead achieves its effect by use of forms, shapes, colors and textures. The word "abstract" itself means separating or removing something from something else from which the idea of the artist arriving at a simplified form from some visible and real elements comes. The term "abstract" is also used to describe art that has no relationship at all with anything in the external reality. Artists in this field, though, prefer using terms such as non-objective art or concrete art to describe their work.
Behind abstract art are a couple of theoretical ideas which include:
- Art for the sake of art- In this case, it is believed that art should be specifically meant for its appearance and beauty other than relevance and usefulness, as in, fine art.
- Art should/can be like music- Some artists think that, just like a piece of music is made up of sound patterns, abstract art should be made up of patterns of forms, colors, textures, lines and shapes.
- Art representing the spiritual mysteries- According to Pato, a philosopher from the ancient Greek, beauty at its highest form comes from imaginary things and geometry and not from things that exist in the physical world.
- Generally, abstract art is taken to be a carrier of moral dimension, in that it is seen to be standing for the virtues; order, purity, spirituality and simplicity.
Abstract art has a long history from the ancient times and still in the 21st century its practice is high. According to Theodor W. Ardono, the ever-growing prevalence of abstract art in the modern world is a reflection of, and a response to, social relations abstraction growth in industrial society. Frederic Jameson similarly thinks abstraction in the present world is a function of abstract money power equating all things as exchange values equally.
What is digital art?
Digital art is a concepts that is gaining prominence today. It has currently become an integral part of the art industry. Thanks to the myriad software programs that has led to the gradually rising in popularity of artistic photography.
Photographs have always been synonymous with a particular occasion. These are pictures that flood our minds with the happy times spend amidst our loved one. Today, the same pictures can be made more artistic and stylish with the use of a computer and a few software programs. Modifying photographs with a creative vision in mind is referred to as artistic photography. Though they do evoke the memories, they also draw attention to the feelings of the people in the picture and convey a strong message. Also referred to as fine art photography by a few, this form of digital art is creating ripples all over the planet.
Before the camera was first manufactured, artists confined themselves to recreating real life pictures on canvas. However, when the camera made its presence felt and captured the real life images and emotions of people, artists began to shift their focus towards creating something that was abstract. This led to the evolution of abstract and contemporary art. Similarly, the arrival of the computers also revolutionized the art industry. What artists took months to create on canvas could be easily created using the computer, thus giving rise to the digital art. The creation of various image editing software programs such as Photoshop and more gave rise to the concept of artistic photography which is considered the next big step in this field.
Digital art finds its uses in many industries today. Logo designing, catalogue and brochure designing, creation of 3D models and cartoon characters are all considered to be digital artwork. The impact of artistic photography can be seen in magazines and newspapers that carry visually appealing pictures. The bright and colourful pictures that capture our attention immediately as we flip through the pages highlight the importance of creatively modified photographs. The models on the cover page may not have had such clear skin or the forests may not have looked so green in the original photographs, but by scanning these photos and giving them a few touches using the photo editing software can bring about a tremendous difference.
Though digital art seems easy on the surface, it needs specialised knowledge and training to master them. Just having a computer with the relevant software does not make one a master in digital artwork. If you're looking for professionally designed logos, catalogues, brochures, calendars or other printed materials, reaching out the professionals in this field is highly recommended.
