      What is Contemporary Wall Art?

      The genre of contemporary art is, within itself, a matter of great debate. Generally, it is accepted that contemporary art is any form of works created within a recent time, by a living artist or ‘within a lifetime’. The art itself can take any form from photography, oil paintings, sculptures, digital art, performance art and beyond. 

      Contemporary wall art and contemporary art prints contain a multitude of ideas, themes and talking points. The work is open to the interpretation of the viewer, who can choose to engage with the subject or simply enjoy the artwork for its visual impact. 

      Contemporary art is fantastic in the home as its broad scope makes it suitable for a wide range of homes and personal preferences. With its ability to transform a living space, contemporary art prints are an affordable and beautiful way to bring life and creativity to your home. 

      What is the Difference Between Modern and Contemporary Wall Art?

      The crucial difference between modern and contemporary art is time. Though the terminology may seem misleading, modern art as a genre came before contemporary art. Modern art was a radical step away from the classical style that came before it, rejecting traditional forms and perspective. Modern art began in the 1860’s and the genre is considered to have ended around 1960. 

      Modern and contemporary art also encompasses different movements. Modern art movements include (among others) impressionism, surrealism and abstract art. Contemporary art includes minimalism, photorealism, installation art and conceptual art. 

      With something to suit every style, our collection of contemporary art prints and their talented creators truly represent the huge scope of contemporary art.

The vibrancy and clever blending of themes make these works a perfect example of contemporary art and the many influences it draws from. 

      Dotty’s high gloss, resin ice lollies present a tactile and unique addition to a home. Striking and immersive, her playful twists such as glow in the dark elements add a changing dimension to these pieces, which evolve depending on the positioning, light source and time of day.
