The basic elements of shape in art can vary creating an infinite amount of exquisite creations.

This art piece by "Azkargorta Zelaia" demonstrates the use of positive/negative shape. You are able to see the white rectangular shape (Positive) clearly be distinct from the blue background (negative).
This piece by "Roy Lichtenstein" is able to show the use of rectilinear shape. Roy uses sharp edges and corners in black throughout the image to clearly define and contrast the separating sections.
In this piece by "Roy de Maistre", the use of curvilinear shape was greatly manifested. Throughout this piece, it exhibits shapes with curved line such as the ones in the middle that intertwine with each other.
"Egypt, the Nile, the Life" has great examples of geometric shapes. The three by four grid shows the shape of a perfect square. In addition, inside the squares are images of triangles, or even smaller squares.
This piece uses the element of organic shape. You are able to see the resemblance of the trees and the landscape into forms of shape.
In this creation by Dana Vachtova, she illustrates the use of non-objective shape. You are able to see the pure form of a circle with a non-representation of any type of reality in the center.
Arthur Kampf uses representational shape in various ways. if you pay attention to the background, your able to see the aspects of the room containing basic shapes, like the ones making the floor, ceiling, and door. Everything is like a "portrait" in which something is trying to be shown, but through canvas.
In this painting, the use of abstract shapes is greatly presented. If you take a look at the image, you are able to see a bunch of transformed shapes that create the two figures. Inside the figure to the left, you are able see the "rectangle" like images that are drawn through his clothing.
In this abstract creation by Poeta, you are able to a lot of high definition degrees. The sense of the bold black lines create a sharp contrast between each color being able to distintively seperate the contrasting sections.
Ik Mo Kim uses low definitions of degree in this painting. There are no sharp lines that bold out points but "smudges" that blend each different color together. Such as the brown and (what appears to be) Violet/pink.
