Abstract art has a mysterious and long history tied in a hundred and one ways with Judaism and Islam. Although viewers can feel frenzy, fantastic, and exaggerated, hardly can one associate it with forbidden protocols by Judaism and Islam. Just because people were prohibited from depicting human being on canvas, they created abstract art style in which way human and objects were absurd and obscure images in artworks unexpectedly. From then on, abstract art has been developing as a profound art style; and oil painting is one of the most important manners of this art style.

Nevertheless, all the different characteristics from conventions make abstract oil painting much more attractive on the contrary.

Rooted from cogitation of human nature, abstract oil painting can grasp every viewer's soul and then guide them to the secret garden of their deep heart.
