Black and White Art

Black and White Art

Two simple colours, Black and White, yet when it comes to decorating your home they can infuse so much drama, elegance and style into an interior space. If you thought you had to have an all monochrome style to make use of black and white art in your home, you’d be mistaken.

There’s a rule in home decor that says every room can use a touch of black. So even if you prefer pastel colours or jewel tones, some black and white wall art can add a focal point to a room. Plus monochrome art is a great way to bind a gallery wall.

If you’re looking to add some drama to a room, look no further than these surrealist black and white prints by Ruben Ireland. If you have a large empty wall to fill, how about these black and white framed art sets by Famous When DeadFaceless No1Faceless No 2 and Faceless No 3.

However, if black and white fine art photography is more your thing, you have to check out the work of German photographer Dorit Fuhg, who prominently featuresanimals and landscapes in her art such as this Portrait of a Highland Cow print and this Cornwall Beach Life landscape print.

Since we work with so many illustrators here at arthaus, we have to mention black and white illustrations. Balazs Solti and Pedro Tapa have some fantastic illustrated works in B&W.

Black and white artworks work particularly well framed, and look best in a white or black frame. You can go full bleed or add a matt around the artwork, as well as simply leaving a white border all the way around. There are few rules when styling a room in black and white, since these colours are so universal.
