In high school, my friends and I would sit in the hallway and catch up for 10 minutes or so after our buses had arrived but before classes were set to start. I remember there was this one painting we would sit near every day that was one of those pieces of art that makes you go “Huh? I could’ve made that myself.” It was some abstract piece that looked like someone just dragged red paint across a canvas and called it a day. Yet it was stored in a glass box in the hallway along with other artwork that had been deemed “important” enough to show off. What?
Clearly, I didn’t appreciate abstract art at that time, but now the trend has really grown on me. Although I will say that I am a much bigger fan of pieces that incorporate tons of different colors and brushstrokes rather than something that looks like one big glob of paint!
I now have a few abstract pieces hanging up around my apartment, and I’ve been pinning tons of rooms featuring abstract art for further inspiration. Below are some rooms featuring amazing abstract paintings that totally pack a punch. It’s safe to say I’m more than a little obsessed with all of these looks!
