Minimalism is an extreme art form in which the artworks are commonly made up of simple geometric shapes presented in straightforward and no-frills arrangements. Hands down one of the most influential and crucial art styles of the 1960s, born in the United States, minimalism is often dubbed the “bare-bone” art form.
Minimalist art is prized for its lack of dynamic touches or any decorative flourishes. It’s an abstract form of art that is characterized by the absence of embellished structures and fancy elements, often leaning towards sculptures rather than paintings.
Carl Andre, Dan Flavin and Donald Judd are some of the most renowned minimalist artists.
