The abstract drawing above shows the mouth and teeth mixed in with some weird animate looking shapes.
I'm not saying it is clear cut haram in accordance with scholarly understanding but my sister surely it is better for us to keep away from grey areas or where we are on the verge of something that is not permissable. A lot of abstract type of art contains animate shapes and features portrayed in a very sexual, twisted and with dark connotations.
If we leave something for Allah to safeguard ourselves then that will be far better for us. Instead stick to calligraphy or drawing of inanimate art.
And Allah knows best in all matters
