Abstract Art of Indian Artists

One Indian contemporary abstract artist said: “Of all the arts, abstract painting is the most difficult. It demands that you know how to draw well, that you have a heightened sensitivity for composition and for colours, and that you be a true poet. This last is essential.” – He is Wassily Kandinsky Contemporary and his abstract art paintings are becoming popular not only in India but also abroad.

Over the last couple of years, the market for this area of abstract art has been picking up in a more strenuous manner. As mentioned, the number of persons who are buying abstract arts did not only increase in India but also internationally. In fact, it even includes Europe, US, Australia, China, Singapore, Mauritius and Japan. Although there is only a limited number of abstract artists in India, these artists enjoyed exclusivity, not only in India and internationally.

The Economics Times have reported that the abstract work of artists such as Harshvardana, Manish Pushkale, Sujata Bajaj and Kishor Shinde have attained price ranges of between Rs 3 lakh and Rs 5 lakh. The artists that are leading from the front are Raza, Gaitonde and Swaminathan. Following them are Laxman Shrestha, Prabhakar Kolte, Rajendra Dhawan, Ambadas, and Ganesh Haloi. Akhilesh, Sujata Bajaj, Seema Ghurayya, Sheetal Gattani, Vanita Gupta and Manish Pushkale are the painters of the third generation.

As repeatedly mentioned, the form of art that is entirely non-objective or non-representational is abstract art. Such form of art is one without a recognisable subject. Also, it does not relate to anything external or does not even “look like” something. In its place, the subject of the abstract painting is its colour and form as well as the materials and support.

Abstract art is a contemporary art that is most commonly understood as a phenomenon of 20th century. The same appeared virtually at the same time, which is in the year 1911, traversing the borders and continents of the cultures dynamically taking part in Western culture. Consequently, the first Modernist abstract painter cannot be pinpointed.

The spot may be given to the American Arthur Dove, Robert Delaunay in Paris or the Russians Wassily Kandinsky or Kasimir Malevich. It may also pinpoint to the Dutch painter Piet Mondrian, Balla in Italy, Franz Kupka, and a lot more. Instead of having an individual invention, what appeared to be the cultural phenomenon is an abstraction in Modernist painting.

For the mere fact that the prices of the master abstractionists reached very expensive levels, the middle as well as the younger generation are now being known all over the world and pushing forward on the price front. You will be able to see the great artworks of these master abstractionists in lots of available abstract art gallery.
