So what is abstract art?
The Tate says:
“The word abstract strictly speaking means to separate or withdraw something from something else. Abstract art is art, which is not representational; it could be based on a subject or may have no source at all in the external world.”
The term abstract art can be applied to art that is based on an object, figure or landscape. It is when forms have been simplified to create an abstracted version of it, or can equally be in the form of geometric shapes or gestural marks, which have no visual reality.
Take a look here to fully understand this cultural evolution:
Now that you are convinced of the merits of abstract wall art, what sort of value would you put on it?
American abstract expressionist Mark Rothko’s ‘No. 6’ abstract painting is regarded as one of the most expensive paintings in the world, with a value of $186 million. Rather than giving names to his painting, Rothko preferred giving numbers and colours to his creations. Dmitry Rybolovlev, a Russian billionaire, bought the No.6 painting at a private sale in 2014.
Take a look at the high prices paid for this modern wall art:

Is this colourful abstract art worth the high prices paid by the rich and famous? What do world famous abstract expressionist artists think?
Gerhard Richter, the world-famous German painter, has expressed his incredulity at the astronomical sums paid for his works, calling the art market “hopelessly excessive” and saying that prices are rarely a reflection on quality. Richter, 83, told the German daily Die Zeit he had watched the outcome of a recent auction at Sotheby’s in London with horror after an anonymous buyer paid £30.4m (€41m, $46.5m) for his 1986 oil-on-canvas, Abstraktes Bild.
Richter emphasised that:
“The records keep being broken and every time my initial reaction is one of horror even if it’s actually welcome news. But there is something really shocking about the amount,”
He said he believed people who paid so much money for his paintings were foolish and foresaw that prices for his art would crash “when the art market corrects itself”, as he was convinced it would. He went on to say: “We artists get next to nothing from such an auction. Except for a small morsel, all the profit goes to the seller.”
