Are you creative? Everyone is to a degree. However, that does not mean everyone is an artist. And an artist can mean anything ranging from painting to creative writing, whether nonfiction or fiction. But you will appreciate some art if you are not considered an artist.
And with World Art Day coming up on April, you will want to acknowledge your favorite piece of art and show it off in your home. World Art Day is the day to celebrate fine arts and a day to encourage you to tap into your creative side. So, what kind of art does your zodiac sign appreciate?
Aries – Pop Art
Aries, you like anything bold because you are bold. Therefore, you like bright colors and bold outlines, which is why you like pop art. Pop art was a movement in the 1950s that emerged from the USA and the UK. Pop art deconstructs popular culture images, such as those found on television, comic books, magazines, and movies. Therefore, you would appreciate pop art and would like it even more if any of it consists of the planet associated with your ruling planet, Mars. The brighter the red color is, the better.
Taurus – Pottery
Taurus, you are sensual and want to appreciate art to engage with your senses, so three-dimensional art is ideal. Therefore, handcrafted art thrills you as you can hold it in your hand, whether a mug, cup, plate, sculpture, or vase. And, of course, you would want these art pieces to be as luxurious as possible because your ruling planet, Venus, influences you in that way. Undoubtedly, you would have so many of these three-dimensional art pieces scattered throughout your home. You will likely buy a few more pieces on World Art Day.
Gemini – Collages
Gemini, you are versatile, and you are not into one particular thing as your ruler, curious and intellectual Mercury influences you to develop a liking for various things, which includes art. That is why your favorite piece of art would have to do with a collage. On the other hand, Mercury influences you to gravitate to anything written, which is why you would like anything visual that consists of written texts. So you likely have various collages in your home or your office. You may even have the urge to create some.
Cancer – Wall Hangings
Cancer, you are all about the home as you take a lot of pride in your home because that is your life: home and family. That is why the art that you would appreciate is wall hangings. You would want to decorate your living room, kitchen, den, or hallway with some lovely wall hangings and pictures of your family on the wall. You also appreciate those fabric-made art pieces you would hang on the wall. Therefore, one of your best gifts would be anything for your home, and an artsy wall-hanging piece would be ideal.
Leo – Live Performances
Leo, you like anything exciting, and it is not that you are not into physical art pieces at all. You have an appreciation for wall art or pottery pieces. But they don’t excite you. You appreciate performance art. In other words, live theatre is what excites you. You can relate to the drama you see and enjoy watching the performers dance as they conduct their plays or shows. Therefore, if someone gave you a choice between heading to the art gallery or a live play, you would choose the latter in a heartbeat.
Virgo – Impressionist Art
Virgo, you are highly analytical and appreciate the detail, so impressionism is the type of art you would appreciate. Impressionism developed in the nineteenth century in France with outdoor painting and spontaneous ‘on the spot’ painting rather than studio sketches. Landscapes and everyday scenes were the main subjects of impressionism. Paul Cezanne and Claude Monet were impressionist artists known to paint beautiful landscapes, which you would appreciate as it would fit your earthy nature. You would be the type to have a few of these impressionist paintings hanging on your wall in your office or home.
Libra – Art From The Renaissance Time
Libra, your ruler is Venus, so you appreciate beauty, which is why the type of art you appreciate comes from the Renaissance time. The Renaissance occurred between the 14h the 16th centuries, and you appreciate the paintings, sculptures, literature, music, and architecture from that time. There is a beauty associated with art that artists created then, and you find the soft tones that artists used quite comforting. You likely would have a painting of the Mona Lisa or Ginevra de’ Benci in your home as those paintings emerged then.
Scorpio – Surreal Art
Scorpio, you enjoy anything considered dark and intense and appreciate surreal art. In the aftermath of World War I, Surrealism developed in Europe, where artists depicted unnerving, illogical scenes and developed techniques to allow the unconscious mind to express itself. The pioneer, André Breton, said it envisioned an exaggerated reality or a surreal world that reconciled dream and reality. Various media were presented, including paintings, writings, theatre productions, filmmaking, and photography. In other words, surrealism consists of a lot of shock value, and as a Scorpio, you appreciate that.
Sagittarius – Art Deco
Sagittarius, you love abundance, and you love anything that you consider as lively. That is why the art you appreciate would be Art Deco, which emerged in France after WWI, and there are several reasons why this type of art would appeal to you. Firstly, it is decadent. You have vibrant colors associated with this art, the geometry is strong, and the detailed work of the art brings out a luxurious feel. Art Deco is glamorous and brings out a wealthy vibe. Buildings such as the Palais de Chaillot in France, the Delano hotel in Miami, and Palais de la Mediterranee in Nice, France, are examples of buildings with Art Deco architecture.
Capricorn – Realism
Capricorn, you are an earth sign that is invested in reality, and you are goal-oriented. Therefore, based on those traits, the type of art you would feel the most fitting for you would be realism. Artistic realism avoids speculative and supernatural elements and represents subject matter without artificiality. The beauty of authenticity lies in seeing things as they are. According to realism, outward appearances are more important than imaginative idealizations. Gustave Courbet, Edward Hopper, and Diego Rivera are examples of realism artists.
Aquarius – Futurism
Aquarius, you are progressive, and futurism art is the best type for you. During the early 20th century, Italy and other countries were at the forefront of a movement known as futurism. Objects such as cars, airplanes, and industrial cities were emphasized, as well as dynamism, youth, technology, and speed. You can find various futurist art media such as paintings, interior and exterior designs, sculptures, textiles, graphic design, and more. Examples of futuristic artists were Luigi Russolo, Umberto Boccioni, and Giacomo Balla. You may even have the painting from Balla from 1913, Abstract Speed + Sound.
Pisces – Abstract Art
Pisces, you are known to be highly imaginative and creative. That is why abstract art is the ideal form of art that you would appreciate. The sky is the limit when it comes to creativity with abstract art, as it can play around with lines, colors, and shapes, but there is nothing about the reality you can see in abstract art. You may have paintings on your walls with shapes, textures, lines, and colors. Examples of abstract artists were Mark Rothko, Jackson Pollock, and Piet Mondrian.
