Many people believe that abstract art is a relatively modern invention - the abstract movements of Cubism and Fauvism marking the beginnings of the movement in the early twentieth century. However, fine art of an abstract nature has existed in many cultures for an extremely long time. The tradition of calligraphy found in Chinese and Islamic cultures is a long standing form of abstract art which both existed in ancient times.
Of all the artistic movements, Abstract art is arguably the most striking. This is due to the less than obvious subject, causing the viewer to think over what the artist was aiming to do by creating their art. A poster representing any abstract movement will instantly modernize any space by adding a splash of color and an urban edge.
