Art visionaries have created remarkable abstract paintings which opened hidden doors and allowed enthusiasts to have a glimpse at parts of themselves and parts of the world. Artists who desire to create artworks which are unrestrained by the visual limits of the human eyes and contain unrelated references which come together to represent a story or a history are referred to as abstract painters. Most of the famous abstract paintings developed in the twentieth century reflect the changes which are ongoing in science, technology, and philosophy.

Abstract paintings are not restricted by reality and they depict imaginary art. They also come in varieties and can be partly associated with shapes, forms, existing visuals or just be an accurate representation of the artist's reality. Abstract painters use colors and gestural marks to create a unique piece of art that is capable of retaining the attention of its viewers for a good time.

Major art collectors have at least one or two famous abstract paintings in their possessions, and since, the nineteenth century, original abstract paintings have been created by renowned artists in the likes of Georges Braque, Pablo Picasso, and James McNeill Whistler. They are all recognized in the world of art and paintings as the veterans and masters in the works they have created. The year 1910 is seen as the year that marks the beginning of abstract art and also, Wassily Kandinsky created one of the most famous abstract paintings ever made, that same year.

Abstract painting continues to prove a versatile field for the development of new styles and experimentation of new techniques in the art industry. One can easily find incredible and original abstract paintings on GalleryToday, an online platform that helps innovative artists build a connection with art enthusiasts by showcasing their artworks for interested individuals to order, and have them delivered in perfect condition.

Over the years, incredible artists have used their innovative ideas and unique talents to create unique and famous abstract paintings, and we will be looking at a few of them in this paper.

The Untitled (First Abstract Watercolor), 1910, Created by Wassily Kandinsky.  This painting is considered the first abstract artwork ever made, with the vibrant colors and marks that run through the edges of the canvas. For Wassily, colors were very important to him in his work and he was able to express that in his paintings as an expression of emotion.

In the year 1925, Joan Miro created the La Mancha Roja (The red spot). A frightening art piece which seems both playful and childish at the same time. The painting is a creation of abstraction and it showcases the creative potential of Joan Miro’s mind. He did not see himself as an abstract painter, but he created the painting by translating what was in his head on that very day.

 Jackson Pollock lead a team of expressionists to paint a remarkable piece of abstract artwork (Full Fathom Five) by using energetic colors and combining various media and original techniques to explore their potentials. The artwork is created with particles of oil paint dripping on the canvas and other items from the studio of the artist. They created an abstract art that showed in great detail the post-war anxiety.
