Dynamic composition revolves around movement and energy, aiming to be captivating and thrilling while avoiding predictability.

Dynamism, often associated with Italian Futurists, is used for both abstract and figurative artworks that convey a sense of movement and energy. In abstract pieces, you may notice compositional turbulence, agitation, or frenetic energy, while figurative works may feature changing, receding, or emerging forms. If you're looking for artworks depicting real objects in motion, check out the "Movement" category.
