Art with a calming effect

Yann Houri

Yann Houri isn’t afraid to use a shitload of paint, which is demonstrated by the painting below. In his work, Houri focuses on the complexity of humankind. It aims to make people aware to live more in the moment and admire these moments for their pureness. Despite the deeper story behind his artwork, the bold sweeps with his brush makes you stare at this piece of art for a while.

This blue lychee ensemble is one of our favorites.

Hotel Magique

Nothing beats the depth of a paint stroke and the flaw of a brush heading an unexpected direction. That’s exactly what discribes this piece of art best. We’ve got nothing else to add.

Pier59studios

The pictures from @pier59studios balance between art and photography, but actually have both incorporated in them. We loved this one of Wayne Booth for marie claire UK, shot by Jason Hetherington. Her facial expression is fierce, her gown is blowing in the wind and the blue shades of the sky have a calming effect. What else you do want?

Harry Markusse

This painting of Dutch visual artist Harry Markusse has some kind of depth in it. Despite that it consists solely of stripes, you get drawn in as soon as you’re in front of it. Take a good look and let go of everything else.

When we first saw “Boy in white sands” we were mesmerized. The colors, the composition and the shades: everything just seems right. It definitely belongs to the best art with a calming effect, if you ask us.

Yves Klein

Yves Klein is also high on our list of art with a calming effect. His use of color, objects and materials works therapeutic. This detail of the Sponge Relief reminds us of the sea, and therefore of how small we actually are. Take a good look and let the imperfect forms of the sponges sweep you of your feet.
