Call for Art- /ˈabˌstrak(t)/

Email Friend Add to Favorites Report Listing

THEME
Abstract art is like breaking the rules of traditional art- it doesn't try to show things as they are in real life. Instead, it uses colors, shapes, and lines in wild and creative ways to express feelings or ideas, often leaving interpretation open to the viewer. It's a celebration of artistic freedom and imagination. Show us /ˈabˌstrak(t)/ from your perspective.
