What is contemporary painting?

Because of the variety of forms, contemporary art is not easily defined, in other words it is by definition "the art of today" i.e. of the 21st century. What could be better than a small piece of hand-painted art?

It is characterised by its global nature, the diversity of cultures and above all the influence of technology and the digital age. Contemporary art also involves material dynamics, is diverse and is part of the communication of modern culture.

Modern and contemporary painting

There is a big distinction between modern and contemporary painting, although their definitions can easily be confused and there is some overlap between the two. We speak of modern art from the 1860s until about the 1970s. Modern art is more like Picasso, Matisse or Frida Kahlo are emblematic modern artists.

But only after the Second World War, the United States became a world art centre and many artists were born, such as Andy Warhol or Willem de Kooning. Contemporary art is mostly related to the present moment and in an art produced in the course of our lives.

The term "contemporary art" first appeared in 1910, with the foundation of the Contemporary Art Society by Roger Fry. It was then widely used in the 1930s as a pejorative term.

Now in the history of art, many movements can be described as contemporary art: abstract canvas, abstract painting, figuration, pop art, street art... Contemporary art also varies from country to country.
