Super Fly DIY: Abstract Art with Chalk

What is abstract art? So here’s the deal. Abstract art doesn’t try to represent an actual recognizable image—it’s too cool for that. Instead, artists that work in abstraction utilize random shapes, colors or any sort of forms or marks to achieve the desired look. This look that abstract artists are going for is more of a feeling the piece gives the viewer. Think of this type of art as a mood ring for you wall—it’s personal and up for interpretation.
