Top 30 Art Trends in October

From Corporate Motif Weaponry to Biographical Children's Books

— October 28, 2017 — Art & Design
Art is something that appeals to everyone, even if they aren't typically someone who considers themselves an art fan, and the October 2017 art trends show that indeed art is varied enough to work for people of all stripes and ideas. No matter the subject or the medium, art has an ineffable appeal that transcends ideas of highbrow and lowbrow.

Sometimes art serves a functional purpose. For example, Pop Chart Lab has designed a poster that acts as a scratch-off card for movie buffs, letting them scratch out the various classic films that they've seen to keep a running tally of their fandom.

Other pieces of art are designed to make bolder statements. Tom Galle has refashioned some of the most iconic brand images and logos into weaponry for a recent art project, making a statement about the potential damage wrought by consumerism.
