For ages, human beings have been engaged in the production and consumption of various kinds of arts. It began with scribblings of animals on the walls of caves and has come a long way to computer-generated music. Visual art has also evolved significantly. Paintings and street art are being drawn in 3D. Magnificent pieces of abstract 3D art are showcased in exhibitions and galleries around the world every day. Artists such as Kurt Wenner and Edgar Mueller have made 3D art their bread and butter. They have perfected this niche of art so well and their mastery over it is clearly reflected in the work that they produce. In this article, we will treat you with 8 best images of abstract 3D art.

Suprametism by Kazimir Malevich

Abstract 3D paintings are hard to find and the good ones are near-impossible to come across. There are very few artists who work with the abstract. Kazimir Malevich was one of those artists. His work in the abstract is critically acclaimed and has a big fan-following in the art community. As an artist, he has inspired many. Budding artists often fear to approach the abstract due to the limitations of convention. It is artists like Malevich who demonstrate through their work that great art can be abstract. It need not have a form that serves the viewer with meaning outright. The meaning has to be interpreted and teased out from the painting.

Such is Malevich’s Suprametism art. This work of his defined a whole subgenre of painting. It was considered cubism’s natural evolution. Malevich’s style involves reducing a work to its geometric essence. However simplistic it may look, his works in Suprametism always carry inside of them remnants of a very detailed picture.

Malevich died in 1935 but he laid the foundation for abstract art and inspired millions of up and coming artists. This Russian artist is a very important part of art history and has a cult-like following when it comes to abstract art.

Broadway Boogie Woogie by Piet Mondrian

Piet Mondrian was an artist of Dutch descent who prioritized art more than reality. According to him, art’s value to man was great only because art itself was greater than mundane reality. Mondrian was born in 1872 in the Netherlands. Mondrian would start teaching in 1892 and would also go on to become a theoretician. However, his love for painting made him practice the art in his spare time. His paintings mostly consisted of natural elements such as trees, bushes, and even whole natural landscapes. Yet, that would change after him becoming increasingly enamored by abstractions. Mondrian soon gave up figurative art for abstract art. He even experimented with cubism.

Mondrian’s art was very ahead of its time. His abstract geometric compositions paved the way for future abstract and even 3D abstract artists. His art career was long and quite eventful. He died of pneumonia in 1944 but had already left a legacy that couldn’t have been matched.

His Broadway Boogie Woogie is, in essence, a colorful geometric expression that is very structural in nature. It consists of yellow, red, and blue on a white background. It can be described as a colorful structure of thin lines connected in a very intricate manner.

Panoramio by Jackson Pollock

Jackson Pollock is one of the most influential painters of all time. He has worked with numerous styles of painting, including abstraction and geometric. This American painter was born in 1956 in Wyoming. He would go on to become the driving force behind the abstract expressionism movement in art. He was known for his eccentric way of painting. He would often use his whole body and paint while engaged in a form of dance. It later came to be known as ‘action painting’. His canvas was often big in size and he’d splash paint all over it from different angles. Yet, he always managed to create something unique and magnificent. His paintings have been sold for millions and he is quite a big name in the whole history of art.

Pollock was very much obsessed with abstract art and a majority of his work was in this style. His Panoramio is a chaotic piece of work that resembles a dense network of grey tree branches. It is a very unique piece of 3D abstract art.

Street Artwork of Kurt Wenner

Kurt Wenner is a street pavement artist who has been doing 3D street art for most of his artistic career. He has a natural talent for painting and it shows. Moreover, his technique of creating images that appear to be 3D is impeccable. His art is famous all around the globe. He rose to fame with the help of the internet. His art made rounds on various social media sites as it should have and now, he is one of the most famous street artists in the whole world. Most of his work is on pavements as it facilitates and brings out the illusionary elements in his work. Wenner was born in 1958 in Michigan, U.S.A. He later moved to California and spent the rest of his childhood there.

He got into the Rhode Island School of Design and Art Center. During his schooling in California, he was also recruited to work for NASA. He worked in the Jet Propulsion Laboratory.

Wenner was the first artist to experiment with 3D pavement art. His Street Artwork is amazing and attracts tourists from every nook and corner of the world. He is a pioneer in his niche and has inspired artists like Edgar Mueller.

The Crevasse by Edgar Mueller

Edgar Mueller is a pavement artist known for painting pathways and walls with 3D art that can be quite deceiving. His talent for creating art that can fool one’s eyes is easily visible in most of his works. He is considered to be the world’s top 3D illusionist painter for a reason. His work is mostly done on the streets, where passersby can be deceived. He loves to work outdoors and doesn’t like the traditional method of painting on a regular canvas. Mueller was born in 1968 in Germany. He is the first artist ever to create a metamorphosing painting that would change from a giant into a fetus as the day would change into night. He did that using photoluminescent paints. Nevertheless, it was one of the most innovative pieces of art that were ever made. He was also honored as “Maestro Madonnaro” at the legendary Sarasota Chalk Festival.

The Crevasse made by him in Ireland is quite a sight to behold. Anyone would be easily fooled by it and avoid stepping on the artwork. It actually looks as if you would fall through the crevasse. It is one of his best works.

The Discovery by Karel Appel

Christiaan Karel Appel was a painter, sculptor, and poet of Dutch descent. His love for painting and other arts was quite apparent as he started painting at the early age of fourteen. He studied at the much-revered Rijksakademie in Amsterdam somewhere around the 1940s. He didn’t make much noise in the European art scene but quietly went about painting and sculpting. It was only in 1948 when he began to make headlines. In 1948, he became one of the founders of the art movement called ‘Cobra’. The movement was quite avant-garde and many conservative critics didn’t receive it quite well. Yet, that did not stop Appel.

Today, his works are showcased in Museums like the Museum of Modern Art and others. Appel was one of the best abstract painters in modern art history. His work, especially during the Cobra movement, inspired his peers to continue their work with abstract and geometric art.

His work ‘The Discovery’ is a mix of surrealism and abstractions. On the first view, it looks a bit unsettling but it grows on the viewer. It has a calmness to it that has to be “discovered” by the viewer. The human-like entity might look a bit alien and a deviation from the normal, but that is the essence of abstract painting.

Stocznia Szczecinska 1 (Piotr Kuczynski) by Manfred Stader

Stocznia Szczecinska 1 (Piotr Kuczynski) is Manfred Stader’s one of the best works. It is very detailed and yet, it doesn’t make much sense at first glance. It might not be geometric, but the viewer has to do some mental exercises to make sense of it. In a way, it is abstract in its meaning. The 3D appearance given to it by Stader, however, is spot on. The illustration is inside what seems to be a broken pavement and it consists of a ship docked by the bay. There are some structures and by their looks, it seems that the scene is that of a docking bay.

Stader is a street artist and not much is not about him. After being inspired by the likes of Mueller and Wenner, Stader began pavement painting and street art in the early 80s. He studied art in the day and did street art as a hobby. He has made many murals and pieces of 3D pavement art.

Broken Bridge by Eduardo Relero

This is perhaps one of the most beautiful pieces of 3D abstract art on the whole list. It might not be that abstract as the meaning of it is quite clear, but the 3D elements in it are quite sensational. The work features a broken bridge with a small boy hanging from the edge, holding on for his life. There is also a car in the whole scene which appears to have fallen down from the bridge into the shallow river. It’s a very beautiful artwork by Eduardo Relero. And one expects that from Relero as he is the best 3D street artist in Argentina. This particular artist has risen from the streets of Argentina and gained worldwide recognition for his amazing art.
