Looking for a radical addition to your home?
Urban art has never been more controversial as it slips from the streets to the walls of your home.
This change of how the style is showing up in more traditional mediums, such as canvas and print, has caused many to debate what defines ‘urban art’ and what types of art can truly be represented by this style.
What is urban art?
Urban art combines street art and graffiti, influenced by current political and social issues; it arose as a way of expressing opinions on the walls and buildings of the city as a form of anonymous political protest. With increased interest came more support, encouragement and appreciation of this kind of experimentation.
As the various styles within street art develop and flourish, the combination of new styles and genres has become even more impressive. Lucky for us, urban art is available for us to enjoy at home.
Urban art in your home
You may be thinking how can I integrate this urban style in my home? At Rock Salt Prints our urban genre combines pop, graffiti and street art. The newer, more experimental mediums you can find on our pop, graffiti and street section intertwine geometric, abstract, surrealist and pop art styles.
Urban art is full of expression, creativity and freedom. As urban art gains popularity inside the home, people are using it to add colourful murals or bold graffiti posters around the house.
If you really want to make a statement, this style is for you!
Its unconventional colour choices and pop-art vibes will spring off your walls. One of the best ways to do this is through the use of scale. A large poster, hung over your sofa or bed, can be used to bring the colours and style of your room together creating the perfect atmosphere that flows and expands your space.
Our graffiti pop art prints are the perfect place to begin your search. We have a wide range of iconic singers, bands and activists that have been portrayed in this unique style. Our urban range brings these unexpected, edgy and cool styles to your home.
Whether you choose something a bold like a full wall poster, mix it up with a gallery selection or even make a statement in the kitchen or with a chopping board or splashback, it’s an excellent conversation starter for your home.
