What sets you apart from typical decor stores?
Picture yourself walking into a home decor chainstore. What do you see? Well, you will probably see quite a variety of decor art ranging from large printed proteas on canvas to a vintage Volkswagen Kombi with a surfboard on its roof. Stores like this cater for quick fix decor ideas and solutions. This gives you an idea of what is currently trending and where your niche might fit into the market or, even better, starting a new trend offering quality, limited edition artwork.
Here are some genres to think about:
Typical photographic genres that can sell for a reasonable price on various platforms include landscapes, wildlife, seascapes, and travel or documentary images. Fine art photography can feature conceptual botanicals, classical black-and-white photographs and body scapes.
Although trends might strongly influence the subject matter and style, it’s not going to become obsolete any time in the near future. There are many styles and some branch out to other styles (such as mixed media). Die Kaal Konyn is an excellent example of an artist using Instagram and her love of illustration to create one-of-a-kind art pieces for individuals.
They say a picture is worth a thousand words. Typography can literally do it too. It can be thought provoking, bold and fun. It is the ideal means of adding some personality while saying something you want the world to know. It is defined by Wikipedia as “the art and technique of arranging type to make written language legible, readable, and appealing when displayed” and is VERY trendy right now!
If you can manage to create art for children’s rooms and baby nurseries you won’t lose out! Parents (and grandparents for that matter) are always willing to spend when it comes to their bundles of joy. Whether it’s simple line drawings, framed watercolours above the changing table or different pieces ranging from photographs to typography, the possibilities are endless for creating that tranquil space.
