The modern world is awash with color. Every time we look at our phones or computer screens, dozens of garish hues clamor for our attention. Black and white pictures offer a break from this exhausting sensory bombardment, giving you chance to step back, relax and regain your focus. After suffering an initial drop in popularity with the advent of color photography in the 1970s, black and white prints are now enjoying a renaissance among stylish young people with an eye for classy, elegant interior design.
Black and white wall art can turn your home or office into a refuge from the hectic buzz of daily life. The stark contrasts and strong lines encourage deeper thought and reflection, emphasizing detail and form. Our range of black and white pictures includes both timeless classics and modern masterpieces. The instantly recognizable “Lunch on a Skyscraper” will add wit and charm to any office, while the philosophical “pause” is the ideal focal point to bring relaxation to your living room.
Black and white photographies of landscapes and animals provide the perfect peaceful backdrop for your bedroom, and our impressive range of cityscapes will add a touch of sophistication to any wall. If you still think black and white is boring, you clearly haven’t seen our stunning Milky Way photographs or Victoria Ivanova’s dramatic “The soul of a mustang”!
Black and white is also the perfect format for examining everyday life in greater detail. The stark lines in our portraits really bring out the subject’s character, while even mundane objects such as typewriters or the keys of a piano take on a fascinating mystique in these close-up shots. Fans of pop culture will also love our range of film and music stars, which includes iconic photographs of Audrey Hepburn, Charlie Chaplin, The Beatles and many more.
The simplicity of black and white pictures makes them ideal for printing on a wide range of materials. Forex PVC foam board is ideal for pictures with a high proportion of white space, and its semi-gloss finish will give your wall art a premium look and feel. Alternatively, choose the classic option of black and white posters on high-quality photo paper for a flexible design that can be pinned to any wall or framed for an extra touch of class. Printed canvas, Dibond and acrylic glass formats are also available.
