“ABSTRACT MY WORLD” Art & Photography Juried Exhibition
Open Call for Artists & Photographers (International)


Through the lens of our eye as abstract artists and photographers, we see the world differently. The world becomes shapes and colours, combinations of geometric figures and lines of different sizes and patterns, all organized in ways that, seemingly chaotic, actually speak to us.

Call Closes on August 31

 

LIMITED TIME OFFER: USE PROMO CODE “WE-ABSTRACT” TO ENTER FOR FREE

Abstracting our world into shapes, forms and colours, making it recognizable only to a point, intriguing the viewer with our own representation of the visual reality that is uniquely different from another’s – is the essence of Abstract Art & Photography, and it intrigues us and makes us analyze.

It takes imagination – wild imagination – to explore the use of shapes, colours, forms and patterns without being limited by the boundaries of the real world. These boundaries are not observed; they are purposefully avoided, allowing us to investigate the possibilities of this limitless exploration, taking us on a crazy roller coaster of emotions, feelings, curiosity.
