Top 2020 Art Trends

From large-scale statement pieces and nature-driven portraiture to pared-back line drawings and retro photography, our latest art arrivals speak to a wide range of spaces, styles and moods. Read on for a closer look at the trends driving our newest art, with insight from Four Hands Art Studio Creative Director Kimberly Grey.

When it comes to sourcing new art, I take snapshots of all sorts of inspiration – from people and architecture to street fairs and restaurant décor – then synthesize these elements and translate them into core themes each season.

Pop Culture & Emotional Connection

From whimsical prints of amusement parks and street art to black-and-white portraiture, art has the power to evoke a cool, nostalgic mood. An expertly curated collection of photography featuring cultural icons and entertainers, our exclusive new partnership with Getty Images Gallery is a great example of working these throwback vibes into a living space, office or gallery wall.

Nature-Driven

Bring that “open air” feeling indoors, with scenic art rooted in nature and leisurely travel. In a newly launched botanical series, for example, photos are laid over natural fiber linen backers then encased in clear acrylic boxes, for crisp, clean interpretations of nature-based art.
