Expressionist Art: Then and Now

February 21, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 186

Expressionist art was and has always been a type of art that gives a large part of itself over to the realm of emotions and feelings, and also makes an attempt at communication through its use of color and its departure from the expected norms of the art world. The very word "expressionist" tells us a lot of what we need to know about this style of art; expressionist works created in this particular style are meant to express something, be it a particular message or simply the feelings of the artist who brought it to life. In most cases these feelings and emotions are the product of or at least inspired by the circumstances and situations that inspired the artist.

Expressionism came alive in the early years of the twentieth century and was a major art movement throughout the US and Europe until it progressed into Abstract Expressionism, a style that truly grabbed the art world by the shoulders and gave it a good hard shake. Many people credit this style as creating the largest divide between artists and the American public of any art style up to that point. Even now, over fifty years since its birth the Abstract Expressionist style is still largely misunderstood by many people. Intended to catch the attention of the viewer, expressionist art is often filled with vivid tints and shade as well as shapes and forms that are assembled with no real sense of depth or reference making their appearance unsettling to some and intriguing to others. Modern technology has made it possible to create expressionist art in a number of mediums including digital works and motion graphics.

Expressionist art is still popular among artists of today, and many of these artists choose to sell art online to customers all over the world. Though perhaps not as appealing to the general public as contemporary art, this style of art still has its place in the market of art online today. It is possible for an artist creating expressionist works of art to sell art online using a personal website, a gallery profile, a blog, or even a social networking site such as FaceBook. Though it was a style of art that sprang from the turbulent times in which it was born, expressionist art is still very much alive today and can be found in various online galleries and marketplaces all over the internet.
