The artistic language of children’s painting
In composition and color, simplicity is the main feature of children’s paintings, because children do not understand some painting theories. Their motives for painting are simple emotional expressions, showing inner feelings, and therefore have strong subjective randomness.
In the use of color, abstract painting canvas generally does not care about the harmony of colors but use untreated original tones to present bright and beautiful effects.
The naive styling, composition and rhythmic color combination in children’s paintings form a romantic and pure child painting world, reflecting its pure inner feelings.
Commonalities between Masters of Modern Art and Children’s Painting
Modern Abstract Wall Art gradually get rid of some theoretical constraints, and at the same time begin to abandon the secular constraints, to find a more free and unrestrained emotional catharsis. Their works, like children’s paintings, yearn for free and unrestrained expression, have a fantastic imagination, ignore some techniques, and “highly generalize, freely graffiti” some images.
Children’s Characteristics in Modern Art Works
Based on Symbolization of Objects and Images
Object-image schematization is a typical feature of children’s painting, which is exactly the basis of symbolization.
Another important feature of children’s painting is an exaggeration. Art masters intentionally absorb this feature of children’s painting, to achieve a special effect and exaggerate the part they value infinitely.
Render in a flattened way
Children’s spatial perception has not yet been completely formed. Therefore, most of their paintings are flat works. To better express their inner feelings, artists begin to break away from some restrictions of education and stereotypes, deliberately abandon perspective, and simply express things through planar intuitive emotions. eventually formed a more pure language complanation.
Pursue pure color perception
Children’s understanding of color is very intuitive and simple. The use of color in the painting is an instinctive expression with one-sidedness and subjectivity. This instinct does not take into account the actual color of the object, immersed in the color game so that the picture produces a strong color contrast.
It can be said that the masters of modern art like to learn to observe the world from the perspective of children when they create, we can use extraordinary imagination, not only focus on the object itself, but also creatively “see” more.
