Abstract art has been around for centuries, and hundreds of abstract artists have created masterpieces that people are able to study and appreciate daily, whether it be through collecting them or seeing them in museums and shows or even examining them in college/graduate classes. To me, abstract art is my favorite type of visual art because I feel like abstract art has no boundaries. Almost everyone sees something different in a piece of abstract work, because, well, it's just that. Abstract.
Different colors make us feel different emotions. To some of us, royal blue seems to give of a melancholy, rather sad and nostalgic, feeling. To others of us, the color has a complacent, calm and reserved effect. Likewise, different shapes and textures remind us of certain things, based on the short-term and long-term experiences that we have had in our lifetime.
So today's Question of the Day is...what do YOU see and feel when you look at this abstract painting, created by modern artist Chidi Okoye? What sort of experiences, memories, energy gets conjured up within you?
