There have been many influential movements in the evolution of art and one of the most prominent was Art Deco or Style Moderne. This first appeared in France just before World War I and kept growing bigger. It became so big that it ended up influencing the design of everything from art, furniture to even mundane everyday objects such as radios.The key features of the Art Deco style are simple, clean shapes, often with a “streamlined” look. The idea was to craft a sleek look with unconventional elegance that symbolised wealth and sophistication.
1.Diving into inner consciousness
The Diver By Vernika
This metal 3D sculpture shows a diver where the rendition of human form is flawless. The ardent detailing of the taut muscles in action is what makes it so striking. The diver in essence also reflects a journey into the inner self. The journey of a seeker plumbing into the secret depths of the mind and soul to discover oneself.
2.Celebrating a mother’s love
Love By Gurmeet Goldie
This art deco work is simple and straightforward, a rendition of mother’s love that is universally understood. The artist puts it simply, "A mother's greatest masterpiece is her children". Her unconditional love is immortalised in bronze. This would make a wonderful gift for a mother or a grand showpiece that reminds one of this beautiful bond.
Fisherwoman By Uttam Manna
Art can be inspired by pretty much anything, it’s the interpretation of what would be considered mundane by the artist that makes the difference. Here artist Uttam has taken a fisherwoman on her daily ventures to make a living and breathed artistic texture into it. The result is an iron sculpture that’s stylish, modern and exuberant. One that would be just perfect for a corner table or to add to your collection of art on your shelf.
