Art In Black And White

I know that the new it painting trend seems to be the modernist black on white abstract. The originals from the mid century truly have the most depth and thought provoking brush stroke as opposed to everyone picking up a roller or brush and slapping some black paint onto a white canvas.  Is it bad to say that I have kind of seen enough of these trendy paintings.? I know they are cool and sharp but if I can't have on original I am not sure that I want to create a duplicate for trend sake, and believe me I thought about it.  However, I have found some black on white art that I would love to have in my home. I feel these have great impact and contain subject matter that speaks to me. Don't think I am saying do away with a black and white abstract if you have one, just open you mind to other forms of black and white that too can create a conversation piece in one's space. Here are some example's!

A wonderful abstract here reminds me of the London bridge!

1961- Myke Reilly at 1stDibs!

The above two are good available prints through Natural Curiosities.


Now the following are my favorite and they are available from

All by the talented Kate Boxer!
They are subjective abstract plus black and white with gives them a modern edge.
I think they would mix well with other modern as well as traditional art.
DO you have any favorite Black and White alternative art that you love,
please share!

  1. I like your first example and the penultimate one the best. I'm also partial to B&W photographs. And etchings.
    There used to be a gallery in Soho in NYC that had B&W lithographs from a Japanese artist who did these nudes that you would swear where photos. But he had actually pounded the image negative onto a sheet of metal, and transferred it with ink. Just amazing.

  6. The amazing design is the art of structure. Art is a masterpiece. Black and white art is very rare in the world. I also love art very much, but I don't have much time because I am busy with my university research. And that's why I don't have to complete my other course assignments and Researches, and I will pay someone to take my online exam so that anyone can do my assignments and quizzes because I have a lot of work-related other courses.

  11. As much as I love to paint but I don’t think I will ever be able to understand the idea of abstract painting. I have tickets to go to an art gallery near my house but before that, I need to hire a professional writer to write my dissertation so that I won’t have to worry about dissertation completion.

  13. Black and white is a great painting subject. Although they still employ certain antiques, most of their decorations these days are made of bright art. I additionally want vibrant artwork for our chamber in order to rest after struggling to finish our subject on the subject of custom law essays uk.
