Oil art paintings remain a common medium for many artists. Although this artistic technique has been around for centuries, the subjects that more forward-thinking painters choose to depict are anything but ordinary. These developments are covered in the Oil Art Trend Report, a compilation of the most cutting edge developments in the oil art world.

Subjects depicted in the past year include human heads in the shape of a shark with a highly morbid look. This fascination with the more unpleasant aspects in life indicate how the public remains addicted to images with a sense of unease. In applying this knowledge to the business world, companies can incorporate this idea of brooding into a variety of products, appealing to consumers' darker and more somber side.
