Expressionist Art: Time to Feel Your Feelings

Self-expression may be pretty popular right now, but it’s far from a new idea. In fact, the “Express Yourself” movement, among artists at least, started early on in the 20th century, if not before. The artists of the Expressionist era were all about feeling your feelings, even the uncomfortable ones. Expressionist art isn’t afraid to distort reality or use a ton of paint for the sake of emotion.

If we’re being totally fair, you can find emotionally expressive art in every single artistic era (after all, it’s what artists do best!) But the official expressionists were a special group. We’ll highlight a few in this post.

Fresh Neutrals: A Decorating Trend for Every Room

Fresh neutrals, or a natural color palette including white, cream, beige, grey, and tan, composed the list of cop-out colors… until recently.

Unique Art Your Guests Will Remember

At a point in our not-to-distant past, the term ‘unique art’ stood as a redundancy. What was art, if not a one-of-a-kind creation? From paintings to sculpture to photography, artists created unique pieces, viewed and bought by others. But today, in a world of prints, copies, and copycats, it’s harder to find art that is truly unique. Now, don’t get us wrong, re-printing provides an amazing opportunity for the famous works of historical artists to be viewed in homes around the world. But when you’re looking for something new, a piece your guests have never seen before, it makes your job a little harder.

Unique art prints come from a variety of places. You may be looking for a print by a mostly-unknown artist, or a lesser-known work of an artist you have admired your whole life. We picked out our favorite rare, strange, and unknown pieces to showcase to you in this post… and we encourage you to dig for others we didn’t even think of!
