Christmas is not only a time of celebration and connecting with loved ones but it’s also a time to express ourselves, inspiring, sharing an experience as a community in a moment of joy. Even if the gatherings may be smaller this year, Christmas is a chance where we can get creative, find inspiration and share. Everything can be an inspiration if you have the eyes and you are in the right time, say all the great artists. And sometimes art itself can be an inspiration on its own… That’s why we see the influence of key art movements on Christmas decoration every year. But today, we’ll look into our favourite: POP ART
Pop Art presented itself as a challenge to traditional fine art and heavily influenced by the popular culture. It is modern, bold, vibrant, exciting and always makes you smile. That’s why it goes perfectly with the most joyful time of the year! Like any artist in other modern art movements, Pop artists brought in fresh ideas about materials, functionality and the way they approached the world. They were brave and they experimented.
If you want to make it pop this year and ready to have fun with your decorations, Pop Art is the right theme for you. Start by looking for bold objects, reflective materials, which allow you to play with light and colour to add to that sense of fun and vibrancy. You can even make your own ornaments by drawing and coloring them on a thick piece of paper to make it as uniquely yours as possible. Bring in neon colors to make it more eye catching. Don’t be shy, the more lights and colors the better for this theme. Choose light strings with different shapes and sizes such as combining pearl lights with festoon party lights. Use lights in contrasting colors, add texture and glam with micro cluster lights. Add mesmerising effects to your lights and your home is ready to pop into 2021!
