The main purpose of abstraction is not to tell a story, but to encourage involvement and imagination. This art form has as main objective to provide viewers with an intangible and emotional experience, being completely different for each one, which can vary completely according to the mood, with the feeling that the work gives you, with your artistic repertoire at the moment. Emphasizing the formal qualities of a work of art on the representational subject, artists will experiment with new techniques, such as the use of vivid and arbitrary colors, the reconstruction of shapes and the rejection of the realistic three-dimensional perspective.
