Art has always been used as a form of escapism and with Lockdown 2.0 upon us and a vastly different looking Christmas ahead, Tiny Riot and the 80’s ‘Queens of Pop’ bring their masterpieces to our aesthetic rescue. Whilst we may be having to stay at home, we can still enjoy our own four walls with some vibrant and exciting art. From Madonna and Freddie to George and Amy, we can all be an entertaining rock & pop royalty on Christmas Day.
Since the whole world went into Lockdown back in March people have taken it upon themselves to make their homes their havens and this phenomenon has directly impacted the buying of art. Sales of art across online platforms and homeware stores have rocketed, with companies across the board reporting increased trade of up to 72% month-on-month.
As we spend more time indoors scrolling, pinning and mood-boarding our perfect spaces, the type of art people are purchasing is also changing, with consumers either buying pieces that reflect their moods (think moody introspection) or buying to reflect their hope for the future (bright, bold and exciting).
“Art has always been used as a mark of personal expression and to reflect where individuals are in their lives as well as the times we live in. We wanted to tap into the need for escapism this year with images that are familiar but presented surprisingly differently. Celebrating these icons was an absolute joy and we hope they get featured lots in the background of video calls to entertain colleagues, families and friends too over the festive period.” Tiny Riot
Using a range of multi-disciplined design techniques, Tiny Riot creates beautifully crafted art editions, ranging from their iconic be-crowned ‘Music Icons’ collection through to camo infused pop art prints (think Charlie Brown and the Pink Panther!
Tiny Riot focus on the crafts of digital and screen-printing and can work with individuals to create bespoke gift messages making any of their products the perfect Christmas gifts for loved ones. With prices ranging from £35 – £120 there really is something special and meaningful for everyone this Christmas.
