So, you’ve settled on the colour you want your next art piece at home to be, and it’s pink. Good choice. Pink features heavily in many modern paintings, collages and prints, so you’re not stuck for options. However, there are many different shades that can either stand out to create a feature piece in your home, or pastel shades that blend seamlessly into your décor.
Whether you’re looking for a minimalist print or a piece of pop art that uses zany, bold colours to drive the mood, you’ll find what you’re looking for right here at Art Republic. And we can help you. Here are six of our favourite prints that use the colour pink to great effect:
Pink is one of the most versatile colours out there, particularly when it comes to styling a living space. You can go for the calming effect of blush pink, or the energetic feeling of brighter, bolder almost neon shades.
They don’t come much bolder or brighter than this pop art print by artist and designer Jake Jeffries. Featuring his signature use of polka dot patters and 20th century icons, this piece pays tribute to one of the greatest athletes to ever grace the ring.
Using a limited colour palette, this particular piece is also printed against yellow and blue backdrops. But it’s this pink variation that we especially love. The use of different shades of grey to depict the outlines and details in Ali’s face, his comical expression, and the boldness of the portrait set against bright pink give this piece bundles of character, and would make a fantastic addition to a bedroom or office.
CJP – Rewild A2 Pink, £120
If you’re after a bold twist on nature-themed art, look no further than this bright pink print of a pinecone by art director turned photographer turned artist, CJP. While that almost luminous pink background is undoubtedly the first thing that catches the eye in this print, there’s more to its composition than meets the eye. Look closer at that highly detailed looking pinecone and you’ll see all kinds of wildlife hidden among the scales, from squirrels to a barn owl. However, that glorious shade of pink is practically as lively as the pinecone itself.
This piece by Angel London depicting a reindeer in a springtime St Paul's in London is a fantastic example of pink taking the foreground in the composition without dominating the entire picture. We love the combination of contemporary references, from the restaurant signage and pub on the left, to the estate agency board and classic barber shop light. The deer adds a sense of otherworldliness to the print, almost as if the piece depicts the edge of a forest as it meets the city centre. And that fallen pink blossom really does stand out without taking anything away from the intricate detailing of the buildings, landmark cathedral, or that beautiful deer.
We love the warm colours changing in gradients in this beautiful photo by London-based artist Nadia Attura. The way the almost aquamarine coloured sky moves to a darker, richer shade higher up and a lighter, warmer shade lower down has an almost hypnotic effect. But it’s the amazing pink hue that the sun casts on the desert hills and dunes that captures our attention instantly.
While there isn’t much activity going on in this piece, it’s the array of colours, captured at the perfect moment, that make this desert scene unlike any we’ve seen before. And we think this would make the ultimate addition to any living space, especially those with sky blue or light green theming to make that pink really pop.
Like many other colours, pink works best when it teams up with two or three other colours in your home. Sticking to a single colour in your art and home design can look a little bit like overkill, while mixing it up with a varied palette can brighten up the place and add a distinct style. Here are two of our favourite pieces that we think go a treat with other colours:
We’ve mentioned graphic designer Emilie De Black and her uniquely wonderful take on pop surrealism before, and if pink is the colour you want front and centre in your bedroom, office space or living room, Flamingo Dreams is the piece for you.
Depicting an alternate world in which flora and fauna aren’t entirely separate, Flamingo Dreams shows a flamingo with beautifully illustrated pink flowers and green leaves sprouting from its body. Set against that sky blue, De Black really brings the best out of the flamingo’s vivid pink, and we think that if any of those secondary colours in the print are the primary colour of the room you’re choosing artwork for, you’re onto a real winner.
Like art that fuses (see what we did there?) two entirely different subjects together? Paul Jeffrey’s Bomb Ballerina does just that, and to great effect. At first glance, the cloud underneath the ballerina appears to look just like the ruffled skirt of a typical ballerina dress. However, look a little closer and you’ll see it’s the spreading mushroom cloud of a detonated bomb. We’re big fans of how seamlessly these two subjects blend together with Jeffrey’s inspiration and digital design skills, and that singular yellow polka dot set against the rosy coral background is a match made in heaven. If you’re searching for pink wall art for a room where the central colour is a light yellow, Bomb Ballerina is a serious contender.
