I love art. I know that's a massively vague statement but I absolutely and utterly love art and all that art is. Fine arts, theatre, music, literature - I love it all. I’ve loved art since I was a child and I studied one year of fine arts in university before deciding that it wasn’t for me career-wise.
What’s the difference between art and design? My interpretation is that basically art is something creative you do for yourself and design is being creative for someone else. As much as I enjoy being a designer and working to briefs, I believe I am also an artist at heart.
One of my biggest goals this year is to add more art into my design work. I want to include some of my own paintings, drawings and patterns into my designs and create something that is a mixture of art and design. A trend that I’ve seen come up and really love is that of abstract shards. Have you seen the hand painted cakes of late? They are visually stunning!
Isn't it amazing how creative some people are? Who would've thought replicating brush strokes onto a cake would turn out so exquisite and beautiful!
I decided to do some more research into abstract shards and created a mood board for my own play at abstract art.
What do you guys think? Are you loving this trend as much as I am?
