Contemporary art paintings broadly cover the time right from post-World War II up to the present time. The styles of artwork in contemporary movements differ extensively from one to another. Through this article we would like to make a small attempt to cover almost all the key movements of contemporary art, and to elucidate how they are interconnected to each other. Some of the key contemporary art span between the 1950s and 1960s mainly included Pop Art, Neo-Dada, Abstract Expressionism, Minimalism and the New York School.

The most distinguished artists from this time mainly included Andy Warhol, Wassily Kandinsky, Robert Lichtenstein and Jackson Pollock. The former art movements of Cubism and Fauvism have been believed to be the main source of inspiration for these new directions that has taken place. The period of 1960s was basically constituted the initiation of modern culture, and modern art was a most imperative part of it. Eventually, the traditional form of art became the part of mainstream with these new contemporary styles of artwork which had gained popularity and appreciation among the populace.

Ever since the 1970s, the additions had been supplement to contemporary art have all been technology based with digital, software and installation art. This style of artwork has consistently developed in parallel with technology and even today successfully going off in new directions.

One comparatively fresh and very up-to-the-minute art movement nowadays is “Street art“, which can be taken as evolution of the former work of art i.e. Graffiti. There are various other new movements which probably are seeking to break free from the mundane pattern of traditional form art, as for instance we can say that Abstract Expressionism had tried the same 60 years ago.

The independence of mind to create and imagine remains strong point in contemporary artists today, and they have made their gateway from simple usage of different canvas or painting techniques, so as to use entirely different forms of expression to portray their adroitness, as you can find in the Installation art of artists, such as Dan Flavin. There are many distinguished artists who are coming up with remarkable paintings and you can buy these Indian art paintings online at reasonable prices.

In the nutshell, we would like to say that contemporary art paintings embodies the completion of the evolution from Baroque and Renaissance painting, through Romanticism & Impressionism up to what we see today. The future for contemporary movements gives an impression to combine with the path of technology and other new directions which may be possible for all us to see in the near future.
