Miniature art is huge in the original art scene this year! Not only are minis beautiful, they’re affordable and easy to change out with oncoming trends year after year. What’s new for miniature art in 2023? It’s all about nostalgia, dramatic colors, and excitement. Here’s how you can incorporate these tiny treasures into your home with these hot trends.
With the pandemic sunsetting behind us, many people are turning to peaceful scenes in art for a sense of comfort, hope, and renewal. Miniature paintings are an excellent genre that portrays peaceful feelings in an intimate setting. This aptly named Peaceful Cove is an oil mini by Rob Crouch, an artist from Virginia.
Vintage trends like the Grandmillenial trend continue to be top of mind for many decorators, and a quick way to create the look is to display miniature art with vintage-looking frames. Regal (Tiger) by Bonnie Latham and Step Into My Cottage by Elizabeth Brown are some great examples.
A gallery wall is a group of paintings and other art media displayed on a wall. An Ode to Jean Dunand by Peggy Morse is a fascinating piece made with casein and eggshell. Wouldn’t it be great to pair it with other minis as a gallery wall? The monochromatic geometric patterns create a clean modern feel, but you can choose many other art styles to suit your own personal taste.
Experience a whole new perspective with the marvel of three-dimensional art. This unique art texture surfaces in many genres, including miniature sculpture! Painting Studio by Julie Amber is an adorable mini ceramic sculpture. Collectors can get creative displaying pieces like these in cube furniture, the office, a study and more.
Speaking of three-dimensional textures, there is plenty of mixed media miniature art that is also suitable for the hot trends this year. Like more than one art style? Go ahead, mix it up! This lovely mixed media mini by Sherri Trial has several colors and textures to pull from to create a fun and eclectic look on a blank wall.
