Top 90 Art Ideas in September

From Encrusted Salt Artwork to Colorful Cloud Paintings

— September 24, 2016 — Art & Design
Promotional art galleries for pets, avocado toast photography series and clothing collections inspired by fine art are a few of the innovative ideas that are explored within the September 2016 art ideas.

One of the most standout themes in these art projects includes the use of unconventional objects as canvases. This is exemplified by hairbrush designs that are painted in the style of famous artists, as well as intricate artworks that are delicately painted onto single feathers.

This notion of unconventional art is also carried through to the use of unexpected materials like salt, hot sauce and plastic as tools for art creation, as well as drones that are capable of painting expressive art pieces, effectively taking on the role of an artist.
