Asymmetrical balance


Asymmetrical balance is the kind of balance (one of the principles of art) in which the parts of a design are organized so that one side differs from the other without destroying that composition's overall harmony. Consequently, when an asymmetrical design is disturbingly off balance, the result is disharmony. Also known as informal balance, asymmetry is the opposite of symmetry.Asymmetry is the type of balance most characteristically found in Japanese art. In Japanese, this intentional unevenness is called "hacho."
