4 reasons more people are buying pop culture art prints

Everyone is always looking for ways to further personalise their homes and bedrooms to make the space really feel like it belongs them. No matter how old you are, there’s always the allure of buying merchandise from your favourite pieces of media (movies, TV, books) to really set yourself apart and let everyone know what your personal tastes are.

One avenue that’s becoming increasingly popular is people buying limited edition pop culture art prints from providers like PopCultArt. This gives people the option to easily select and order from a wide range of pop culture art prints that will look amazing in any space they are put in.

Let’s take a look at 4 reasons pop culture art prints have become so popular in recent years.

They simply look fantastic

Take a brief look at the collections available online and you’ll quickly be impressed by the sheer artistic quality on display. These are art prints, not posters or other pieces of promotional media, meaning that they have been created from scratch by artists who love the subject matter as much (if not more) than you do.

The artists can be incredibly creative and will often translate older pieces of pop culture into contemporary context, giving them a modern feeling. Often, the art will focus on a minimalist style that uses familiar elements of the subject matter in new and exciting ways.

Many pieces will create an artistic portrayal of the journey a key character makes and the transitions they go through. There are many stunning 3 panel pieces that reflect the 3 act journey of most hero characters in pop culture.

Everyone is familiar with the teenager who has their bedroom wall adorned with posters of their favourite pop culture icons as a way of personalising their space and making them feel comfortable in it. While we can always do this as adults, these posters can seem kind of juvenile to visitors.

Pop culture art prints are the perfect mix of your personal taste in pop culture with the more minimalist style that most people prefer in household artwork. They rarely directly show the brand name or any iconography and instead use their minimalist style to produce something that is above all else, artistic.

This means that they transcended the ‘tacky merchandise’ feeling and are instead treated primarily as self-contained artworks. Even if a visitor is unfamiliar with the subject matter of the piece, they will still be able to appreciate its artistic quality because it stands on its own as a unique artistic creation.

This is why pop culture art prints have become so popular with adults who want to personalise their space with something close to them but don’t want it to be as overt as a promotional poster. They are a subtle way to spruce up the space with something personal to the owner without alienating visitors who may not understand the subject matter.

They add much needed colour to otherwise dull spaces

Like any kind of artwork, pop culture art prints are a great way to add colour to the rooms of your home without needing to spend big on repainting. They give you an easy way to enhance your interior spaces but with a highly personal flair that you will continue to love for many years to come.

They make a great alternative to traditional pieces of art because they actually depict something highly relevant to you and your tastes rather than just being something that looks nice in general. Rather than simply decorating with a picture of a landscape or a boat, why not decorate with a piece of art that depicts something from pop culture you actually care about?

They make incredible gifts

When it comes to gift giving, there’s nothing better than seeing the sincere gratitude of a friend or loved one when you hand them something that really matches their likes and interests. It’s easy to find out what parts of pop culture a gift recipient is interested in and buy them an art print that will go perfectly in their own space.

The great thing about buying pop culture art prints as gifts is that because of their minimalist style, it’s a gift that the recipient is highly likely to actually use. The next time you enter their home, it’s more than likely you’ll see them proudly displaying the art print you so thoughtfully bought for them.
