Updated on May 18, 2024 by Mathukutty P. V.

Artists are known for their thoughts – creative, free, without any boundaries, and always colourful. Abstract art is a form of art where the artist creates a masterpiece that’s free-spirited and colourful. These colours, shapes, forms, and designs are nothing but mere representations of their thoughts. Some people have myths about abstract artists that need to be shattered.

Myths About Abstract Artists That Need To Be Shattered

Talking about abstract artists, one of the renowned and effortless artists Krupa Shah’s artwork is something that sets a level higher for the abstract art industry. That is because gives the opposite person entire freedom to judge the paintings and come up with their own thoughts about the same.

However, there are some myths or stereotypes that revolve around every artist, especially the one whose forte is abstract art. And just like every other artist, Krupa would also like to break these delusions and show the real side of an abstract artist.

Myths About Abstract Artists

Here are some of those misconceptions that we, as a common man have about these artists:

1. Abstract artists are elitists

People often say that artists who love doing abstracts are snobs or are boring, However, the truth is, they are highly creative and love to talk about everything, and not only just art. Their paintings themselves are more than just shapes and figures. It has a concept in it, yet the viewer has the entire independence to put forth their views. For abstract is not only theoretical but also transcendent.

2. Abstract artists are loony

Whoever thinks that artists are insane or mentally unbalanced, needs a reality check! Artists are not insane, they just look at the world very differently. Their thoughts about one thing would be absolutely different from yours and that’s what makes them unique and imaginative.

3. They are jobless

If one makes their passion their profession, chooses to be an entrepreneur and enjoys what they do, how come they are unemployed? The correct word is ‘self-employed.’

4. You need to be talented to be an artist

Well, one needs to have a desire to be an artist. If you have the passion to spill your thoughts on the canvas, talent will follow automatically and so will the techniques. Talent doesn’t matter, an appetite for becoming an artist does.

5. Abstract painting is easy

Says who? Why should anything that’s worth doing be easy?

There are a number of techniques that anyone can learn (such as shading, rules of perspective, colour theory, etc.) to produce a painting in a relatively short time. But it takes real effort to move beyond mediocrity.

Great artists can make it look easy, but that ‘ease’ has, like any great skill, come through years of hard work and practice. This is proven effortlessly by Krupa Shah’s signature collection Abhiscka which is all about Conches (Shankh) and has such minimal yet beautiful artwork. It seems easy ut is a result of her years of endurance and dedication to the art.

These are some of the most common misconceptions or myths that every artist hears almost every day. Let us shatter these stereotypes and see the world from an artist’s perspective.

God has created everyone with a special talent. Some people do not identify their talents and some people do not get the chance to ignite the fire within them and improve their strengths. Some are unsung heroes who are not able to display their talents to the public. It is our responsibility to encourage and help every person to identify and improve their talents to achieve success in life.

Hope this small post removed all myths about abstract artists and helps to give them proper honour, respect and motivation to become successful.
