Cubism art. And why I dislike it.

Cubism is a style and art movement in which the perspective with a single viewpoint was deserted and the use of simple geometric shapes, interlocking planes, and collages were brought into play. Cubism has been considered one of the most influential art movements of the 20th century. A few artists that are associated with this movement include, Pablo Picasso, Georges Braque, Jaun Gris, Fernand Leger, Robert Delaunay, and Paul Cezanne.

Though I respect and applaud the artists’ for the creativity and uniqueness in their artworks, I do not like their cubism pieces. In my opinion, cubism is ugly and too geometrical for my taste. The conceptual shapes, the hard outlines, and the dark colors used in cubism are things that I don’t enjoy looking at in a piece of artwork. With cubism I feel like I don’t understand what is going on in a piece or I don’t understand the concept of what they are trying to portray and that bothers me. When I look at a piece of artwork I don’t want to feel like I’m constantly trying to figure out what is going on, I want the piece to feel warm and inviting and something I can relate to but with cubism I just don’t get any of that.
