3 Types of Eye Catching Black and White Art

Abstracts
If you want a modern and sleek piece of artwork, go for a black and white abstract art print. You can choose between abstract shapes and textures to create visual interest. For these, I would stick to a simple black large framed art print, keep the focus on the dramatic print. To make the artwork really stand out, hang it on a white or black wall.
Photography
For a more classic and traditional look, go for black and white photography. You can find black and white photography in modern or vintage styles. If your space is modern, stick to a simple landscape or object, if you’re space is more eclectic, go for a fun vintage poster. These pieces can be smaller or mid size.
Portrait
If you’re looking for a conversation starter, hang a large black and white portrait. In terms of art style, I would recommend a simple line art piece if you’re a minimalist, and a watercolour, ink or photograph if your style is more eclectic or maximalist. These bold art prints can really add some drama to your walls. For sizing, I would go for a medium to large framed art print so that the face or figure isn't too small.

5 Styles of Art that Will Always Be In Fashion

Photography

This art style is a great way to include a modern piece in your space, but keep it classic. Photography is also great for minimalists not looking for the painted look. Photography is a pretty broad category, ranging from macro to wide lens, you can find a piece that will suit any space.

Landscapes

There has been a rise in modern abstract landscapes in interior design. If you’re hunting for a more traditional look, a simple painted piece is great for a large wall. Landscapes are perfect for over the couch or fireplace.

Abstracts

You can either go for a dramatic pop of colour, or stick to a more subdued neutral palette. These pieces are the perfect accompaniment to a modern or minimalist space. I recommend going for a bigger piece instead of a small abstract, so it can create more texture and visual interest in a room.

Florals

Florals are another type of art that has been recently branching into a more modern interior design style. There are artists painting abstract florals that are great for a feminine element. These dramatic colour palettes are great if you’re looking for an eye catching piece.

Collage

No, I’m not talking about that cut up newspaper type of collage, but a modern take on this style. With photoshop and digital art programs now becoming so accessible, artists are creating beautiful digital collages that are bold and fresh. These pieces are great conversation starters, I would keep the sizing small to medium as these pieces tend to be visually quite busy.
