Wanting to know more about styling an abstract or geometric art poster in your home? Then keep reading to see Project Nord’s top tips and tricks for styling these posters, alongside a brief history of geometric and abstract design to see where and when this trend really began. You may be surprised to see just how long geometric and abstract shapes have been adorning art.
When styling your abstract or geometric posters, colours can be drawn out of these designs to use as accents elsewhere in the space. This subtle but powerful method will help draw the space together. Try hanging one of these designs in a space you work in. You’ll find yourself mesmerised by twirling patterns or thought-provoking shapes. Sometimes, this is exactly the stimulation your brain needs.
One tip: try picking up on some of the subtler tones used in the poster and get a matching throw or cushions. This sort of attention to detail will not go unnoticed! It actually brings about a sense of relaxation and harmony. This harmony in your interior helps create a sense of harmony in you as well: an added bonus!
Within our abstract posters collection, we have a variety of modern designs featuring every colour under the rainbow. And, did you know these designs can be minimalist too? Our collection proves this very point.
Our geometric collection has real flair whilst being both sleek and sophisticated. And, these geometric designs have personality. By using rich colours, even geometric forms are set alive.
All designs from Project Nord are of premium quality. Take a look at our collection of abstract and geometric poster prints and shake up your interiors!
Abstract posters are brilliant for introducing some colour to your space
Abstract poster art looks brilliant in all homes. In a minimalist home, one piece of wall art can create a huge impact on a space. With white walls and clean furniture, a modern art piece brings life to your wall and is stunning at the same time.
Where did this style of art come from? Artists began painting abstractly around the start of the twentieth century. Wassily Kandinsky, for example, was one of the pioneers of the art form.
His pieces contain lots of objects and shapes pasted together in a painterly collage. Kandinsky thought his pieces saw through to an alternative spiritual path and you can see why. They are erratic, full of colour and texture, and they make you think. What can you see in Kandinsky’s works?
In Project Nord’s collection, we have a range of abstract poster designs which are of a similar style.
Our ‘Mother’ poster contains various forms which seem to support one another. Can you see where it gets its name from? The element at the bottom of the design has the same solid properties as our parental figures. Then, the shape near the top can bend and flower out.
Can you see how this art poster is similar to Kandinsky’s work? The bold forms shape together beautifully. If it doesn’t look like a Mother to you, what can you see?
Other artists who were a big part of the abstract movement were the likes of Jackson Pollock and Mark Rothko. These artists were both around in the fifties and have been categorised under the label of abstract expressionism.
Jackson Pollock’s pieces are famous because of how confident they are. Pollock created his work by dripping paint across a huge canvas and trailing sticks and brushes through it. They are full, overpowering, and breath-taking.
Supposedly, his works were created through surrealist automatism, where the artist loses control of their body and just let themselves create whatever comes out.
Rothko’s artworks were also created out of a sort of meditative state. His pieces featured huge, soft-edged blocks of colour on a canvas.
He often used two tones in his paintings situated close to one another. One would act as the shadow to the other. The composition was always simple.
By not trying to represent anything physical, both artists were allowed to show their inner feelings. This is the very beauty of abstract art! And, their feelings laid out on a canvas could mean something to them and something completely different to someone else. The meaning is endless.
So, what sort of abstract art posters would you like to decorate your interiors with? These art prints look great with solid wood mounting around them. So, try framing prints if you’re worried that they will look too busy.
Of course, there are also plenty of black and white abstract art posters for you to choose from as well. So, if experimenting with form and colour is too much, you can cut one of them out.
We have everything from subtle and minimal prints to loud and beautiful designs. Take a look at our artworks for sale and see what suits your taste.
Geometric wall art ties a minimalist room together
Geometric poster design is another brilliant way to bring a bit of extra detail to your home decor. But, where did our obsession with geometry come from?
Geometric forms have been fascinated over for centuries. The Greeks used geometric forms to decorate their vases in 900 - 700 BC. Horizontal bands went around the circumference of the vase and decorative motifs were used to decorate in between. This could be anything from zigzags to triangles.
Back in the ninth century AD, Islamic artists believed that geometric patterns represented a spiritual realm. The way different shapes fit together infinitely was a reminder of something beyond this earth.
This same interest in geometric forms is still prevalent today. But what is it about geometry that people find so pleasing? Perhaps the reason geometric designs have stood the test of time is they are so simple yet also mesmerising.
As geometric posters are really modern and sleek, you need to think about the sort of space you want to have. Larger geometric posters can look great in minimalist spaces, as long as there are also some added details in the room.
Just like with abstract artworks, geometric posters look great when paired up with contrasting designs. A gallery wall with a mix of these two posters would work brilliantly. Try experimenting with different sizes and keep going until you strike the right balance.
What are our best geometric posters? Our ‘Together’ poster is a prime example of a sleek but striking design. This poster may feature simple geometric shapes, but makes a statement and brings personality to your wall. It’s interesting to see what these geometric shapes create together.
You could also try hanging one of our geometric designs in your bedroom. It would be lovely to experiment with geometric bedding to tie the room together. There are loads of grid-type beddings available so they would be easy to get your hands on.
Also, opaque colours next to geometric prints look magical. Try leaning one of our framed posters on top of your dressing table and then place a large, coloured vase in front of it. Seeing flashes of the art pattern seep through the glass looks simply stunning.
