All You Need to Know about Wall Art Trends for 2019/2020 - SampleBoard

There is nothing more personal and authentic than the art we select for our interiors. In 2019, we rely on our homes to help us express ourselves and remind us of our strivings and goals in life. The wall art says a lot about us and can do wonders in conveying our message and setting the desired mood for the space. That’s one of the main reasons why it became as popular in recent years. However, the clients often struggle with selecting the perfect grounding pieces for their rooms and that’s where we as interior designers and our mood boards jump in.

If you feel ready to head into a more playful realm, the great news is that the seasons ahead promise even bolder, more eloquent statement art directions. With minimalist aesthetic in decline, expressive wall art turns mainstream and becomes one of the most favorite ways to decorate our homes.

We choose vintage and antique gems, but also affordable art prints created by aspiring illustrators who are finally getting recognized for their work and becoming influential in the digital environment.

To stay updated on what’s hot and what’s not, let’s take a look at the wall art trends for 2019/2020.

Line Art

Inspired by the drawings of Picasso and Matisse, this omnipresent art trend is every minimalist’s dream. Line art uses the power of negative space to make a dramatic visual statement using only simple black lines on the white background. Both classics and contemporary solutions are into play, so depending on your client’s preferences, feel free to choose either prints of famous artwork or modern one-line portraits and intertwined figures. The raw simplicity of this look gives freedom to experiment with interior styles such as minimalist, collector’s eclectic, or even maximalist.

Female figure

The art world is rediscovering an obsession over the human body, especially female. Celebrating female empowerment, artists turn to women to tell their stories. They give power to strong female leaders, but also romanticize the small, everyday moments of solitude and contemplating we usually fail to appreciate these days. The color scheme of these prints is often earthy and retro-inspired.

Bold abstracts

Using negative space, bold abstract art combines different shapes and colors to create a sensual, but a loud statement. From dramatic street art-inspired shapes and colors, and all the way to soft, feminine stains and geometry, this type of artwork is perfect for bringing visual stillness into the room. Color blocking marries a throwback culture with a contemporary aesthetic to create an impressive modern look.

Bold abstracts look great on large size canvas and gallery walls.

Reminiscent designs

The retro mania is being translated into the world of wall art too with vintage school charts making a great comeback. But this is nothing new. Nostalgic flashbacks brought us a rediscovered interest for classic paintings (both portraits and landscape) and flea market finds, but also vintage-inspired posters and space race references.

Creative photography

When it comes to photography trends, we will rely on expressive black & white and color images to depict our deepest desires and duality of life. A growing appreciation for surrealism and philosophical subjects fuels the popularity of fine art photography and photo manipulations portraying compelling visual stories. Creative use of makeup translates the line art trend into the realm of photography and fashion.

Engaged art

Art that embodies feminist, lifestyle, philosophical and political messages has become a number one choice for those unapologetic about expressing their opinion. Eccentric, humorous and often a bit bizarre, these prints feature anything from empowering to profane, but always, always speak to your heart.
