This Affordable Modern Wall Art Is Like a Mini Face-Lift for Your Space

The word modern can mean different things to different people, but when it comes to art, it refers to a specific time period and style of painting. "Modern art was characterized by a desire to do things differently—to experiment, to work with new materials, to breathe a spirit of freshness into traditional art," explains Rebecca Wilson, Saatchi Art's chief curator. Although modern art has its roots in the past, you can find contemporary works of art that pay homage to this rule-breaking movement.
