From nature to the events that mark the human experience, the inspirations that guide our artists can be found everywhere.

The subjects that inspire us are as varied as the stories behind the works we exhibit.

No matter what artistic movement stirs your passion or the materials used to create what catches your eye, the inspirations behind the works are also of paramount importance.

Allow us to guide you through the different creative elements that can encourage the development of artistic work.

Human inspirations

The “human” aspect of inspiration does not only focus on physical attributes since inherent thought also deserves artistic attention.

From painted portraits to nude drawings, art truly allows the body and mind to meld into harmonious coexistence.

The following body parts continue to inspire artists everywhere:

  • The whole face
  • Eyes
  • Lips
  • Hair
  • Hands and feet

Those who thrive on human inspiration are also fond of life events. Whether they feature a man, a woman, or a child, the moments that tend to inspire creativity are not always the most significant.

However, the different moments of life such as childhood, motherhood, and death are themes that are regularly explored.

Natural inspirations

Throughout the ages, the immediate environment has been an important source of inspiration for artists of all backgrounds. Consequently, it is appropriate to attribute a certain imaginative power to the elements of nature.

The natural components that can provide inspiration include:

  • Space and astronomy
  • Sunsets
  • Landscapes
  • Mountains
  • Clouds
  • Trees and the forest
  • Flowers (roses, chrysanthemums, tulips, etc.)
  • Ocean and the beach

As flora and fauna go hand in hand, animals can also be included in paintings, sculptures, drawings, and photographs.

Architectural inspirations

Although they are man-made, buildings and monuments are also an integral part of the artists’ experience. From this point of view, it is obvious to grasp the essential place they tend to occupy in the creative process.

In fact, many architectural elements are endowed with evocative geometric forms or a historical character that piques the imagination of artists everywhere.
