This is a curated selection of expressionism art, including drawings, paintings and mixed media. Expressionism art is an interpretation of the subject in a subjective manner for emotional effect. The style is often associated with angst and modern anxiety, but can evoke an array of emotions, ideas and moods in the viewer.
The following artworks are primarily portraits drawn and painted in a variety of mediums and expressionistic styles that help create unique interpretations of the person or character. Erratic and chaotic lines permeate bold blocks of sometimes disparate color applied in an alternating deliberately calm and energetic manner. Some of the artworks lean towards an abstract or impressionistic style focused on the manipulation of color, tone, and texture to suggest a form or emotion.
