The mix of black and white is associated with light and darkness, with yin and yang. Its main idea is a play of contrasts and a struggle between opposing concepts. Black and white paintings do not contain anything superfluous, they carry a history of contrasts and are often created using the minimalism technique. This makes them suitable for modern, high-tech, loft, art deco interiors.

Such artworks do not overload the interior, they are strict and consistent, but this is their appeal. Black and white paintings are often created with an emphasis on dark or light colors. Therefore, you can choose the dominant color that suits you based on your feelings or preferences in the interior.

Dominant colors in black and white paintings and their meaning

It may seem to you that limited to the use of two colors, black and white canvases cannot be diverse and unique, this is not true. Artists use different textures and often choose the dominant color from a duet of two shades to create a unique artwork filled with associative images.

There are two ways to create black and white paintings.

  1. In the first version, the artist uses more white. In this variation, the canvas is impregnated with grace and looks light and airy.
  2. In the second version an artwork bears respectability and strict elegance. It is dominated by deep black color, black strokes and lines become the center of the canvas.

Thanks to this variation, the painting takes on different shades and meanings, as well as combined with different colors in the interior.

What colors are best combined with black and white paintings

Black color will reveal itself well in a bright and spacious room. However, it is worth remembering that black and white paintings with a dominant black color against a white wall can irritate your eyesight due to the very strong contrast.

If in the painting that you have chosen there are more dark shades, combine it with orange, pink, light green, red, lilac, yellow colors. In this case, it will be perfectly shaded, but will not tire you.

However, if the canvas is created in more light shades, it will look great in an interior that has red, green, blue, gray and purple colors.

Which room is best to hang black and white paintings

Any room in your apartment will gladly "accept" black and white paintings. A light-colored canvas in your bedroom that depicts contour lines or landscape will calm you mind before sleep.

In the living room, a more contrasting version of the canvas, with rich black in tandem with bright white will look great. For a large and bright living room, you can also choose a set of paintings. For example, you can check one of the living room paintings or grey abstract paintings to complement the canvas in black and white shades.

When choosing black and white paintings, do not be afraid that you will be mistaken with the choice, since this is a classic option that will harmoniously fit into any interior.
