Geometric Art

Geometric art consists of shapes, forms, and basic geometrical shapes like cubes, cone, sphere, curve, and line. Geometric figures usually refers to math or geometry. Why is geometric art so beautiful? To draw and develop simple shapes, objects, and so on. Many people use it to express themselves especially when trying to find the natural beauty within them. Is all this really so?

Art have always been created by artists to show their talent and skill in portraying and expressing their own ideas. But with the progression of artistic techniques and concepts, more has been blended to make one artistic masterpiece. Some may find this as a challenge as to how artists can express and make beautiful works of geometric art. Some artists use complex mathematical shapes to express their artistic ideas.

The term 'geometric' itself pertains to art that consists of simple geometrical shapes. Some of the most famous abstract paintings are those by Monet, Giacometti, Cezanne, Chanel, Chardin, Le Corbusier, Rachmann, Koons, Grossman, Warhol, Rothko, Safran, and Moet et al. All these artists have contributed in formulating new ways of presenting and interpreting the real world through their artwork. These modern artists are considered to be the pioneers of geometric art. All these were influenced by the works of the likes of Botticelli, Degas, Monet, and Cezanne.

Art historians say that geometric art is actually a re-examination of art and an attempt to bring it closer to reality. Many artists are now trying to make things more concrete and less abstract. And most of them have done it successfully. There have been a lot of changes in the style of abstract painting, especially with the arrival of computers and computer-aided design (CAD) software that helps artists to create 3D digital images.

Some examples of geometric art include murals, prints, paintings, and sculptures. The term 'abstract art' has also been used to describe some forms of contemporary art. The uniqueness of abstract art lies on the fact that it usually has no real subject, instead everything within the artwork is based on the painter's imagination. Another great thing about abstract art is that it can easily be blended together with other genres.

Abstract art started in France with the first group of painters called Cubists. They were focused on practicing decorative arts, literature, and music. Later on artists from all over Europe joined the movement. Cubism is a term used to describe a particular style of painting which owes its origin to the likes of Picasso, Manet, Fauvist, and Breton. It differs from the traditional style of French expressionism, and is often considered to be a parallel movement to Cubism. Other popular abstract paintings that can be classified as abstract are Dadaism, Fauvism, Pop Art, and Viennese influenced art.

Many people have said that American contemporary artist Jasper Johns is the father of modern abstract art. Others have labeled him as the founder of abstract art. According to some experts, John was influenced by Russian Constructivism, and his works included simple shapes and colors. Some of his most famous pieces are The Complex Machine (1947), Sea Melon (1949), and Cactus (19 52). Recently, there have been theories that he may have created his 'unning' art through his subconscious.

As discussed above, geometric art has been around for a long time. It's actually very common in Greece. The use of geometric art in Greece began when the people found that using the common geometric shapes they could make more dynamic artwork. For example, instead of using the usual spherical vase shapes, the early Greeks used hollowed out reeds called sputa to make more interesting geometric abstract designs. As history has shown us, the greatest painters of all time, including Leonardo da Vinci, were inspired by nature. And we can conclude that the future of art would not be complete without the work of such artists as Da Vinci, Manet, Picasso, Monet, and Chares.
