Figurative Art

The Main Characteristics of Figurative Art

Figurative art, also referred to as Figurativism is very representational. In fact the name itself derives from the word figurative, because the main aim of this form of art is to clearly represent real objects. Figurative art is thus often described as being the opposite of abstract art. Figurative art revolves a great deal on the understanding of shapes and geometry is an important characteristic in such artworks. In fact formal elements are integral parts of figurative art. These include the lines, shapes, texture, colours, mass and perspective, among others. The aim is ot ultimately create an impression that is accurate and realistic.

Figurative Art and Abstract Arts Compared and Contrasted

Figurative art is all about giving a realistic and aesthetically pleasing representation. On the other hand, abstract art, is less precise, and some art collectors do not appreciate it ot the full as they do not understand the meaning behind the work of art. The artists will abstract a meaning and create a work of art out of it, often using all sorts of techniques and materials in the process. Therefore, since abstract art suggests meaning, rather than being outright and clear about it, it differs considerably from figurative art.
