There is a beauty to be found in the shadows that has inspired artists throughout history. Life isn’t all sunshine and rainbows – and neither is art. Revel in the intensity and emotion of gothic art and the eerie atmosphere it creates. Gothic pictures have a powerful impact that appeals to many of us far more than pretty landscapes and floral prints.
Whether you’re looking for inspiration for your next Halloween party’s decor or you genuinely love the drama of this style, you’ll find a fantastically creepy selection of gothic pictures to choose from. Fallen angels, devils, sirens, ravens and skeletons – they’re all here waiting for you.
Gothic pictures may draw inspiration from the darker things in life (and death), but that doesn’t mean they aren’t beautiful in their own way. Prints range from the subtle to the nightmarish, allowing you to find the level of darkness you are comfortable with.
Contemporary prints, such as the five black feathers depicted in ‘Five Ravens’, are striking in their simplicity, bringing just a touch of gothic charm to a room. Many historic gothic pictures are more elaborate, such as William Blake’s gruesome scenes in ‘the great red dragon and the beast from the sea’.
Hanging sensual prints is a fantastic way of bringing some dark romance to a bedroom. You’ll find beautiful gothic women to admire from the strong Game of Thrones-inspired ‘Northern Wolf’ warrior to the unforgettable ‘Catrina Girl’ with her Mexican ‘Dia de los Muertos’, or the Day of the Dead, make-up.
Find the right material and your gothic pictures will make an even bigger impact. Modern photographic prints are given a gorgeous sense of depth when printed onto glossy acrylic glass, while images with intense colours are given a bold finish that complements their style perfectly when printed onto slender Alu-Dibond.
Gothic pictures of misty or snowy settings, or those with white backgrounds, look fantastic printed onto lightweight Forex foam board, which has the added bonus of being light enough to hang safely on any wall. If you have chosen a traditional painting, then you might want to consider printing onto stretched cotton canvas for an authentic museum effect. And don’t forget our high-quality photo paper, which gives a great performance for the price and can easily be framed for a more professional finish.
