2021 Art Trend: Virtual Escapism

Naturally at iCanvas, creativity is one of our favorite escapes. After spending nearly a year within the confines of our own homes, it’s no surprise we’re collectively seeking a getaway in the form of art. Never before have we been so desperate for a dreamy reprieve from reality. Coined by Minjin Kang and Mijoo Kim of Mue Studio, the phrase “virtual escapism” says it all.

Described as “a safe harbor in the storm,” the soft compositions, atmospheric imagery and clean lines work together to create a calming, surreal vibe. Blurring the lines between reality and fantasy, we love the power this trend has to transport us to a soothing utopia — a welcome distraction disguised as a visual voyage.

Whether you dream of sailing through stars, floating on clouds or exploring otherworldly architecture, iCanvas has a huge variety of art prints to help you discover your own dreamland. From celestial scenes to mystical horizons to pastel palaces, keep scrolling to escape to another world within your walls.
