4 Artists Who Create Minimalist Art

These artists create minimalist art in four different ways. Given their unique life experiences and artistic journeys, we’d expect nothing less! From organic and introspective to playful and retro, we’re taking a look at art from four artists who reveal that less is more.

With a sleek aesthetic and sometimes abstract appeal, minimalist art hones in on simplistic designs infused with literalism. A style that rose in popularity in the United States in the ‘60s and ‘70s, minimalism is incredibly prominent in art today and has even made its way into home design and other decor. Because it’s a style that can either give off calming or expressive energy, it makes sense that so many creators are diving into their own versions of minimalist creations. Whether it’s brightly hued food or subdued geometric shapes, these four artists create minimalist art in different ways.

From faceless portraits to reimagined movie posters, the work from these artists can bring stylish empowerment, colorful joy, and more types of vibes to your space. From abstract botanicals to fashion creations, keep scrolling to find a new favorite artist.
