Adding Drama and Contrast to Your Home with Black & White Wall Art

Black & White Art – Adding Drama and Contrast to Your Home

There are few things quite like the elegant drama that a black & white art piece can add to your home. That’s where these unique and wonderful pieces of black & white wall art come in very handy.

The very first piece of Black & White wall art that I ever owned was the classic – if perhaps slightly overused – β€œMoon and Half Dome” by Ansel Adams, which featured a moon rising over a huge rock-face.

I’m not sure what it was about that picture that appealed to me at the time, but it was when I first started noticing the importance of adding quality artworks to the home.

Before this point, I will admit, I had mostly decorated with movie posters and some IKEA rugs tacked up to the wall.

But once you discover a love of art, even if your taste changes over time, I don’t think you ever go back.

So today we celebrate the unique and stunning drama that is always provided by beautifully designed black and white art.
