As a matter of fact, Black abstract art is not a new trend at all. Black abstract paintings started to gain popularity and public interest around 2011 and it has been growing strong ever since.
Even though it has been in the public eye for a while now, I must say, This last year i started getting more and more clients that specifically ask for a “dark themed” painting or explicitly requesting that i create a “black abstract” painting for them.
It’s partially because of the current political situation in the world and also because people are becoming more open minded to try new things or go outside of their comfort zone when it comes to art.
In my opinion black abstract paintings are powerful, thought provoking and can be quite enigmatic. It’s a style of painting that i’m very passionate about and i enjoy creating.
If you’ve never seen or considered this type of painting before, i urge you to take a look at some examples online or even better, go to a local gallery where you can see them in person. I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised.
