Abstract expressionism:

an art movement

evolved in NYC

set NYC on trajectory as ‘the place’ of modern art (over Paris)

spanned 1940’s to mid 1960’s


undefined forms

sometimes suggestive of a figurative reference

expressive of emotions

spontaneous, rapid application of paint


Now go for it-

express your inner abstract expressionist.

You know you want to!

A bit of inspiration from

American abstract expressionist artist

Franz Kline (1910 – 1962).
