What is Abstract Expressionism . Definition from Wikepedia

I have been often asked what was my style. 

I navigate between an abstract expressionist artist and an impressionist one. So today I wanted to share Wikepedia version of Abstract expressionism

 Abstract expressionism is  a post–World War II art movement in American painting, developed in New York in the 1940s.[1] It was the first specifically American movement to achieve international influence and put New York City at the center of the western art world, a role formerly filled by Paris. Although the term "abstract expressionism" was first applied to American art in 1946 by the art critic Robert Coates, it had been first used in Germany in 1919 in the magazineDer Sturm, regarding German Expressionism. In the United States, Alfred Barr was the first to use this term in 1929 in relation to works by Wassily Kandinsky.

Here is one of my abstract expressionist pieces
