Exploring Trending Abstract Art Styles
Abstract art is always evolving, and we see new trends emerge in the art world constantly. Abstract art is a popular choice in homes and businesses around the world, and art trends are influenced by what’s happening in interior design. We’ve rounded up several trending abstract art styles for you to explore and shared our tips for how to use them to complement your interior decor.
Monochrome art refers to artwork created in a single color or limited color palette. The term monochrome means “one color.” Monochrome art is created using shades, tones, and tints of a single color. We are seeing a rise in monochrome interior design styles, which naturally also lends itself to the art world. Monochromatic artwork is a great way to complement the color palette of a space, or it can be used to create a pop of unexpected color in an otherwise neutral room. The possibilities are endless!
Soft focus abstract art refers to art that uses a blurred or diffused focus, creating a hazy and dreamy aesthetic. In contrast to sharp, detailed pieces, soft focus abstract art intentionally blurs the lines and contours. Soft focus art produces the same effect as a photograph that is taken out of focus. You can see the subject, but the actual contours are softened for a mellowed effect. This style of art has a languid feel that works beautifully in spaces designed for relaxation like the bedroom or communal lounging areas.
Organic shapes in abstract art are irregular, free-flowing shapes that are inspired by elements found in the natural world, such as plants, animals, and organic materials. Unlike predictable, regular geometric shapes, organic shapes have a more fluid and unpredictable quality. This style of abstract art goes well with the natural, organic style of interior design that we’ve been seeing more of lately. Natural materials like raffia, raw linens, stone and unfinished wood all complement the flowing lines of organic abstract shapes.
Textured abstract art incorporates raised elements on the surface, creating a sense of physical texture that can be felt or seen. Artists achieve texture in abstract pieces through various techniques like layering paint, or incorporating mixed media materials. Textured abstract art is a great way to add dimension and visual interest to any space. Textured art makes a great accent piece when placed strategically. Try placing a textured abstract above the mantelpiece or sofa, or on an expansive empty wall in the dining room or bedroom.
