Perceived in a procedural and practical approach, postmodernism can be termed as the cultural expression of the period of the history of modernity, but these narrow parameters are mostly criticized. Modern art is basically a perception, which means that it does not signify that what is revealed, but what a person thinks that it is.

This piece of art intensifies the trepidation of the unexpected, and the fluidity displayed is overwhelming, and he easily makes forms, theme, beauty and sensory enjoyment as an integral aspect of his unique creative talent. This tends to dwarf the very philosophy of beauty, as envisaged by Michael Angelo, and in its place replacing it with an abstract version of art. Postmodern art may be taken as an anti-art or adverse form or art, which has obliterated previous art forms and has stunned its viewers.
