Monochrome vs colourful art

Art is a very personal thing. What excites and engages some might not necessarily resonate with others and one of the many things that makes art such a talking point is colour.

Some choose art to suit their interior design décor scheme whereas others select their colour palette to complement their art. However you choose what adorns your walls, from dark shading in muted tones to bright and bold pieces, here are a few of our stand out monochrome and colourful canvases that have arrived at Art2Arts this month for your consideration.

Capturing the raw power and beauty of nature using oils on Fabriano paper, Wendy Hyde has perfectly replicated the essence of brooding skies atop tall trees for a thought-provoking monochrome piece.

What makes this piece so interesting is the various interpretations viewers receive with some seeing stormy skies whereas others perceive treetops with the sun breaking through the cloud.

The sumptuous autumnal hues of The Rooster by Vivek Mandalia deploys vibrant tones and takes inspiration from famous impressionists to create a canvas rich in colour, depth and texture.

Using heavy layers of impasto oil paint, artist Vivek captures the effervescence and beauty of the humble farmyard animal and presents him in all of his colourful glory. This is the ideal piece for animal lovers and those who wish to brighten plain walls with a much-needed pop of colour.

When the subject matter turns to nature, pops of bright colour really aren’t needed to create a feeling of certain seasons. This is something that artist Lucy Moore has proven in her latest monochrome piece which depicts meadow wildflowers softly swaying in the summer breeze.

Filled with movement and interest, this abstract piece on canvas transcends home décor styles, making it ideal for both modern and traditional interiors.

Using mixed media paint with geometric shapes, new artist Vito Parteli entwines circles, squares and a whole host of bold geometric forms to draw the viewer deeper into the piece.

This coloured paint on canvas piece takes abstract art to an almost interdimensional level, with plenty of areas that are deserving of a deeper perspective as we travel further into the colourful and attention-grabbing piece.
