No. 5 by Jackson Pollock used to be one of the most expensive paintings in the world. The abstract artwork was sold for a whooping 140 million dollars. Abstract expressionism is to this day one of the most respected artistic movements. Art lovers all over the world appreciate it for the uniquely beautiful compositions that ignite the imagination like nothing else!
At first glance, Jackson Pollock’s paintings are fully abstract, they don’t depict anything in particular. However, when you look closely, you can distinguish shapes and silhouettes! The painter himself stated that his movements when splashing the paint on canvas aren’t random but deliberate and thoughtful. It’s evident by the renown of his work and the fact that many art collectors would do anything to get their hands on one of his paintings. Pollock’s style provides a wonderful inspiration for interior design, especially if you enjoy rooms that feel elegant, modern, intriguing but also minimalistic.
Minimalistic interiors are where abstract canvas prints can truly shine. The splatters of colour can then become the dominating decorative elements in the room. They are very eye-catching but not tiring, thanks to the simple shapes and limited colours surrounding them. If you want to use this or a similar design in your living room, pay attention to the overall colour scheme – canvas prints with very vivid colours will look best in subtle, neutral spaces. You can highlight the charm of your print by surrounding it with grey, white and black.
In other parts of the room, you can introduce more expressive details, such as golden vases, which match the colours featured in the design and make the entire interior more classy. Your living room will become the perfect space for relaxation and receiving guests, especially during elegant dinners. This combination of homely cosiness and the raw atmosphere of an art gallery will only highlight the beauty of the print. You’ll start noticing new details, shapes and silhouettes in the colourful splatters. What’s more, these types of artworks allow every observer to come up with their own interpretation. The print will always provide an interesting topic of conversation, not only about art. Is abstract expressionism worth trying? In our opinion, absolutely yes!
