I tried to stick to my favorite art form in Contemporary, ant that painting. Other then that this art style is quite confusing like you can read on many magazines explaining it like this “Contemporary art is notoriously difficult to understand and can be quite intimidating. For one, unlike past movements, the range of artistic styles of the present haven’t been digested by critics, curators, and art historians and don’t lend themselves to easy categorization.”
“Renowned for its bold imagery, bright color palette, and repetitive approach inspired by mass production, the movement is celebrated for its unique and recognizable style.” Pop art is a creation of culture emerging in United Kingdom and the United States during the mid- to late-1950s Popular culture and imaginative interpretations of commercial products of same times.
My personal journey into understanding and admiring this art developed frim Duda style,began not from Salvador Dali but rather with Pink Floyd cover of The Division Bell “Surrealism is a cultural movement that began in the early 1920s, and is best known for its visual artworks and writings. Artists painted unnerving, illogical scenes with photographic precision, created strange creatures from everyday objects, and developed painting techniques that allowed the unconscious to express itself” This movement was and will be one of most fascinating art styles. Inspiring and expanding horizons of a human mind in a clear imaginative ways that are visible even to untrained eye. Surrealists painted illogical scenes or strange creatures using everyday objects
Dada was a mother to surrealism, beginning before 1920s with the clear difference separating it from surrealism which was an absence of Sigmund Freud theories influence. It is always fascinating to see how people mix shapes and forms to create a meaning from scraps and Raw pieces of available material. They often used photo montages, assemblage or ready-made objects which made it that much more interesting.
This Neon Pop style began its journey with progress off computer vector graphics and modern crazy Japanese Pop culture , clearly inspired with different Harajuku styles and neon lightning and with such talented masters behind it like Hiroyuki-Mitsume Takahashi this is a true vision of Art, Fashion, Technology mixed with human desires blended in a party seaming through shy walls of Japanese culture.
