Decorate your way with our huge collection of poster art ready-to-hang prints! These prints are sure to grab attention in any room, best suited for minimalist or retro décor. The advent of poster wall art is closely linked to that of the printing press in the 15th century and has its roots in lithography, which in turn takes precedence from styles of photography. Poster art prints consist of a mix of graphical images, text or a singular use of the two, with designs that are often drawn from historical references of art publishers, advertising, propaganda, and cultural bodies. Categorized usually into fine art, reproductions and political posters, poster art prints offer a varied take on a pre-photographic artistic style that was influenced heavily by the geopolitical and industrial climates of the era and evolved to suit a medium that was used as practically as it was artistically.
Those turn-of-the-century arty illustrations are pretty, vibrant, and perfect for any part of the living space. Perhaps the most well-known illustrations are those by French artist Henri Toulouse-Lautrec, who captured the Moulin Rouge in all its vivacity. At the time, Illustrations made the perfect poster art for businesses looking to advertise an event or product. The Cognac Pellisson art poster of 1907 was created by Leonetto Cappiello, considered the ‘father of modern advertising’. It’s a claim hard to argue with as Cappiello uses humour to advertise the alcoholic beverage. He has also used his unique sense of wit and style to advertise beer, cigarettes, and biscuits. Then there are the elegant Art Nouveau illustrations by Alphonse Mucha that will brighten up the home with the sensual movement of his divine figures and bright colour palette.
