Inspired by Art Nouveau

Organic subject matter, decorative pattern and curved, graceful line work are just a few of the most recognisable characteristics of Art Nouveau. Catapulted straight out of the decadent late 19th century, this movement was generous with color and honored detailed, intricate forms. More recently, Art Nouveau has provided inspiration for a new generation of artists and designers who, inspired by the poster designs and advertisements by artists like Alphonse Mucha, have incorporated this style into their own designs. Here are a just a few examples we’ve hand picked from around the bubble. If you like this sort of thing, you can find plenty more here.
