Art has been in this world as long as human beings existed. It can be said that art existed even before the development of languages and man used art as a means of communication. In the ancient times, art was mostly simple geometric and linear figures or signs drawn on textiles, pottery, caves and rocks. It had a symbolic meaning representing culture, religion and status. This representation of meaning in art differed with culture and time throughout the world which led to the development of abstract art.
Abstract art is a form of art which uses visual display of colors and lines to create a pattern that has a degree of independence, not confining to a particular figure. In other words, a perfect representation of objects or figures is likely to be extremely vague in an abstract art. It gives a visual meaning and anyone can enjoy it without being able to read it. Abstract art does not call for an elaborate use of colors. Even simple black and white patterns could create beautiful visual display that carries untold meanings. These 32 patterns contain both complex and simple drawings and they are sure to grab your attention and create an impact.
