art does not necessarily require any formal
tuition in order to create quality work, but like any quality
art form; it requires a certain degree of discipline to produce.
I think the best
a creative way of expressing a modified view of the world and
its objects by simplifying or complicating the use of colour,
shape and form.
Abstraction is different to a lot of more tradition styles of art
because it is more focused on the use of imagination or ideas
expressed through emotion.

A lot of good
abstract paintings offer people quite a different representation of life.
For example...a view that is removed from the reality that we are all quite familiar
It is an art form
that is created in quite a non-representation way.

I think there is a real power in terms of making a connection
with people, if the
artist has applied
discipline and worked from a authentic form of creativity and expression.
Whether it be
through the use of colour, a mixed media form, figure or
shape manipulation...what makes any given piece of work its true essence in the opinions of the
buyer/onlooker is its ability to connect and stimulate.
Is It More
Creative Than Other Art Forms?
I'm not really
sure...particularly when you consider some of the less
appreciated forms of "crazy abstract art" that quite
often don't really have an audience or connect with us on any
But abstraction is
an art form that is ultimately derived from taking nothing and turning it into

It is a creative interpretation
of taking something that is merely a thought and producing it
into its physical form... such as onto a painting canvas.
I personally think
that art is creativity; therefore no one form of art could really be
creative than another form of art... could it?
It would almost be
like saying that a song is better than a painting. They are
two different forms of art yet they equally require a certain degree
of creativity in order to be brought to life.
