The World Abstract Artists of all time. Top Abstract Paintings

The styles are abstract artwork reflecting on the social content and the abstract nature of social presence. In actuality, in late modernity's world, based on the artists, abstract art became varied. Contemporary art is the work generated from the 1860s. It denotes philosophy and the styles of the art. The expression is associated. Below are the most famous abstract artists and their work:

The prestigious list will start with Hilma Af Klint (1862-1944), Swedish artist, is considered to be the creator of Abstract painting. Hilma Af Klint and four other young female artists arranged the group"Five". The mission of this group was to investigate spiritual elements of culture and develop the practice of drawing -- the method, which became associated with Surrealists and Andre Breton.

Wassily Kandinsky

Born on December 4, 1866, in Moscow, Russia. Founded in Neuilly-sur-Seine, France, on December 13, 1944. He was not only a painter, but a mystic, theosophist, and art theorist. His perspectives on art were expressed in his"Concerning the Spiritual in Art" book. He believed religious, and transcendent content is a part of the painting. The material can be expressed from the direct psychophysical effect of rhythms and colour accords.

Kazimir Malevich

Born on February 23, 1879, and died on May 15, 1935. Malevich was a Ukranian avant-garde artist and art theorist, whose pioneering work and writing had a profound influence on the creation of abstract art, or non-objective . Born in Kyiv, he invented the concept of Suprematism and sought to develop a form of expression that proceeded as far as possible from the world of organic forms. It moved as well in order to access the supremacy of pure feeling and spirituality. Malevich is regarded as a pioneer of avant-garde that was Ukrainian.

Piet Mondrian

Mondrian applied angles. Perpendicular and parallel lines made the picture. The palette included primary colors (red, yellow and blue), in addition to non-colours, like white, grey and black. The surface was even and flat, so the balance, embodied in the regular grate composition can not be disturbed by anything.

Vincent van Gogh

The next on the list is a French artist who's an illustration of Post-Impressionism, Vincent van Gogh. Van Gogh is now among the most popular of the painters, although he was not appreciated during his lifetime. He is now famed for his works' energy that are characterised by emotive and expressive use of playful use and colour of impastoed paint. Distort and the traumas of his life have tended to dominate perceptions of his art.

Theo van Doesburg

The ideas of Neoplasticism has been created by another painter from the Netherlands -- Theo van Doesburg (1883-1931). He formulated the theoretical foundations of Neoplasticism in the articles, published in"De Stijl" magazine.

Paul Klee

Paul Klee taught with Kandinsky, working on his visual theory, based on which the morphogenesis in nature and art is rooted in the exact rules- the rules of harmony.

Robert Delaunay

Robert Delaunay (1885-1941), a prominent French master, was motivated by the theory of Simultanism, formulated by a chemist Michel Eugène Chevreul. The theory explained the peculiarities of our colour perception with the influence of the surrounding hues.

Frantisek Kupka

Where he received training that was artistic, he moved to Paris in 1894. Being interested in theosophy, he also was well-acquainted with the variety of scientific concepts of light and color. They prompted Frantisek Kupka to shift from Neo-Impressionism and symbolism to compositions that were nonfigurative.

Arshile Gorky

Arshile Gorky escaped with his mother to Russian-controlled territory and fled Lake Van during the Genocide.


Pablo Picasso

Pablo Picasso, a renowned artist in the 20th Century, began his career painting symbolic pieces. About 1910, Cubism, that's the drawing of angles and planes that looked like the people he drew was developed by him, but seemed more like geometry.

Franz Kline

Franz Kline made his abstract canvases. They were noticeable for bold brushstrokes' contrast. Franz Kline restricted himself with optical instruments' minimal to create the experience of the viewer.

Mark Rothko

Another prominent representative of the Post-war American abstract art was Mark Rothko (1903-1970). Produced Markuss Rotkovičs; like Gorky, he was the son of the immigrants in the Russian Empire.

Barnett Newman

Among the most crucial masters, who defined the growth of Colour field painting in the USA, we should mention, is Barnett Newman (1905-1970). Similar to Gorky or Rothko, Barnett Newman's way to success was complex, as the master had to confront the public's unacceptance and misunderstanding of his philosophy. He had his first solo exhibition and it received harsh criticism.

Jackson Pollock

If Kline, Rothko, Newman attempted to demonstrate the self-standing character of painting as an object, another American master Jackson Pollock (1912-1956) moved the focus from the result to the procedure. Pollock introduced the way of rendering a piece: canvas was taken by him and set it on the floor.

Nicolas de Stael

Now it was Europeans' turn to respond to the art tendencies. Tachism or Art Informel was the version of Abstract Expressionism. Several outstanding painters represent it, but likely it's Nicolas de Stael (1914-1955), who is best-known to the wide public. He was the son of immigrants from France.

Yves Klein

Where a studio was set by the artist, born in Nice, he moved to Paris.

As the legend says, since it was in the cellar of this building and had no windows, Yves Klein painted its ceiling not to be overly depressed.

Pierre Soulages

Born in Rodez, Aveyron, in 1919, Pierre Soulages is also known as"the painter of black". By their meditative atmosphere, abstract compositions of Pierre Soulages (b. 1919) are distinct and at the same time very similar to those by Yves Klein.


Man Ray

Man Ray was one of the artists that are famous. Surrealism was a movement that included writing that developed in the 1920s and visual arts. The artist career is special above all for the success he had attained in the USA and Europe.

Gheorghe Virtosu

Gheorghe Virtosu is one of the contemporary art representatives. He's the master who doesn't deny reality. The artist paints under the impulse of revelation-ideas born as sparks impossible to control, which light an whole series of subsequent actions. He admits that changes can occur during the process that is artistic concerning the dimensions and colours used. Sustains that the spark, as a moment of inspiration, is the one deciding how the work will eventually look.
