Black and white photography has always had a firm place in the art world thanks to the timeless appeal this style creates. A lack of color in a photograph does not make it less of a picture, in fact it adds to the image. Instead of your eye being distracted by colour ranges it is allowed to see the picture in it’s truest sense, raw and simplified. You see the detail and lines in more clarity whilst the lack of color creates a deeper image. Good photographers know which scenes will benefit from black and white treatment best and this selection of stunning pictures is a great example of how the photographer has seen something special through the lens.
Of course we all love to have art prints in our homes as they are a natural way to decorate our walls and by using black and white prints such as canvases we can bring some of this magic into our rooms. Also known as monochrome, black and white canvas art is ideal for virtually any room design as it does not interfere with the colour the wall is painted, unlike some strongly coloured wall art can. This makes black and white art an easy addition for most home owners looking to bring a touch of sophistication and class to their rooms.
There are many online galleries which offer black and white prints but you may find the same images on every site, thus reducing the uniquness of the picture. There are many famous photographers who’s work you can find on plenty of art stores but to really make an impact it’s a good idea to go for images which can not be bought in the high street art shops. Find yourself a local photographer who creates the style of black and white images you like and you will have a much more limited edition black and white canvas and it may well be worth more in the future if the artist becomes famous. Look around and you should be able to find some print on demand art. It may cost a bit more than the mass produced monochrome art but it will have a more unique presence
on your wall.
Another method of finding high quality artwork is to take a look at these stunning canvas prints from the Black and White Picture Collection at Fotoviva Art Prints – they can be purchased online and are a great way to add some appealing art to your walls.
