Normally, my style is fit in with mostly abstract and modern paintings. I always analyzed and viewed my art as something with a complex form of sorts.
However, after studying art of Picasso and his abstractions of bulls and other animals, I had some inspirations in what really makes a painting an “abstract.”
Abstraction is taking the essence of a subject matter, refining it down to its most basic elements, and then portraying those elements through a medium. I have done this (to an extent) with my relatively newer animal art paintings (linked below). Hopefully I will have done the past artists proud.
