PAULTLBT vs IKEA was born when I found an old unloved IKEA print in a local charity shop. It reminded me of my own artwork and just looked unfinished to me. So I decided to finish it!  It’s a part of my ArtworX collection by me by Paul Talbot. Born from a lifelong fascination with abstract art. Think of them as me ‘visually jamming’ along to my favourite tunes and having a good time. Just doing what I love. Without any of the usual constraints or limitations that are the inarguable truths of tattooing as a medium.

What is Abstract Art?


The definition. Abstraction literally means the distancing of an idea from objective referents. That means, in the visual arts, pulling a depiction away from any literal, representational reference points. You can also call abstract art nonrepresentational art.

The first signs. Abstraction can be traced to Impressionism, Post-Impressionism and Cubism. All three helped realize the idea that art could be non-representative.

The movement. Modern abstract art was born early in the 20th century. It was completely radical for its day. Artists began to create simplified objections with little or no reference to the “real” world.
