Minimalist trends have been steadily rising for years, bringing back more simple and graphic art styles. It would be strange to have a white room with simple furniture and an elaborate old fashioned painting, so decorators have chosen to stick with more shape-based artwork to compliment this design aesthetic. I’m sure you’ve seen a ton of influencers online with their fancy apartments and their Matisse art prints. Matisse is a great choice for simple decoration styles as his work is very colour and shape-based. This simply means he mostly painted colourful blobs. His other most popular prints are line art, again a simple drawing or painting that will match a more modern design taste.
It’s not only that his art is simple, Matisse is a name that a lot of people recognize. Most people don’t have a terribly diverse art history knowledge, but I would recon almost everybody has at least heard the name Matisse. Buying name brand clothing and accessories has been trendy and a status symbol for a long-time, and this is no exception with artwork. Buying artwork with a big name like Matisse on it can look upscale and fashionable.
Whether you purchase a Matisse print for the name, style or simple the trend, Matisse art prints are great pieces for any modern space. With a timeless modern style, it’s no wonder 67 years after his death, Henri Matisse’s work lives on in contemporary homes.
