Generally speaking, individuals usually try to be original, to get out of the ordinary, to do something that has never been done before; but not painters. They are a specific category of people who strongly believe that you cannot bring something new to art. No matter what or how you try to paint, be sure that someone else has already done it.
Postmodernist art of painting embraces the idea that it is no use in trying to be original because all the possibilities have been exhausted by traditional and modern painting. By embracing this idea, the process of painting becomes more interesting in style.
Because of the fact that they are not worried about what to paint, how to paint becomes, consciously or not, the criteria upon which paintings are differentiated. This attitude of acceptance is the cover for a more profound feeling of wanting to paint in a special way.
Consequently, there is an obvious pattern in the characteristics of style. Postmodernist painting goes hand in hand with tendencies existent within the society, criticism being also its most important feature. The paintings have started to represent different critiques brought to the address of society, of people, of internet, of everything. Each domain has something interesting that can be used in works of art.
Moreover, artists do not longer focus on painting beautiful things that you may like seeing. They actually develop a tendency to paint weird things and weird people who do not have been exploited that much in this field. The situations chosen are more and more realistic. The real work of art is actually the painting that succeeds in surprising the real atmosphere by putting accent on different features of objects.
The critique they bring to society is sometimes very obvious, but sometimes you must dig deeper to find out the real meaning. The paintings that have an obvious critique presented are usually very alike with caricatures. The similarities are at the level of exaggerations that are made within the painting. In order to make a certain defect more obvious or in order to make the critique more visible, postmodernists create different proportions within the image. Consequently, in order to be able to understand his message, you need to focus on the emphasized features within the painting.
Besides this, there are two more modern painting styles that have a known great appreciation within postmodernist society. There is acrylic and oil painting. The first type is more and more appreciated to the fact that the works of art are waterproof. Once the painting has dried off, nothing can erase it from there. Besides this, another special thing related to acrylic painting is that it can happen everywhere. Is it flexible and adapts to any kind of material you use as a support. On the other hand, oil paintings have a known a great appreciation within house designs. More and more people use this possibility to decorate their home.
All in all, the main word that I believe it best characterizes the style of postmodernist painters is postmodernism. The trends that appear in every art have the same essential ideas, painting being no exception from this.
