Abstract art is, at its core, a visual representation of something that most of us will neither see nor understand. Sad to say, unless you’re an art critic, the meaning behind most pieces of abstract art will be completely lost on you. That doesn’t mean we don’t think they look good.
As meaningless as they often appear to the artistic layman, abstract art has a certain appeal that we can’t quite place. Whether it’s an interesting use of geometry, an intricate design in folded newspapers, or, I don’t know, a heart shape fashioned out of dripping tomato sauce. There is something pleasing about certain abstract pieces that we just love.
Of course, it’s not just the weird and wonderful that falls into the category of abstract art. Plain old objects can become abstract, with the right tinkering. A DSLR camera with rainbows shooting out of the lens. A 1960s television set riding a wave of DVDs. When your art looks like something from a strange dream, your opportunities are, quite probably, endless.
So endless, in fact, that there’s really no way of determining what kind of abstract colorful desktop wallpaper will suit your needs by description. Few people think about what wallpaper they’d like on their desktop, and come to the conclusion that they’d like to see “something with a horse made of vegetables flying through a meat rainbow”.
The only way to be sure, is to see it. That could mean a lot of abstract 4K wallpapers to flick through, so, to help you get started, here are thirty stunning examples for you to choose from. Enjoy!
