Music Lovers Art Gifts

Visual art and music have always had a close relationship. There’s a reason that we think about album covers and music videos when thinking about our favourite music; our mind likes to connect sounds and images to create an impression that is greater than the sum of its parts. This is why it’s worth buying art for the music lover in your art. Of course, you can’t just buy them any art. You should take the time to find art that has a music quality, art that relates to music on some level.


Musical Imagery

The quickest way to find art for a music lover is by looking for music-themed art. There are plenty of artists out there who make art using musical imagery. Think of paintings of instruments, of musicians, and musical symbols. Some artists only paint musicians, working hard to capture the essence of an artist at work as they paint portraits of musicians on stage. This approach is the most literal, but that isn’t necessarily a bad thing, sometimes less is more. If you know that the person you’re shopping for has a favourite musician, then you can’t go wrong getting them a painting of that musician.

Visuals to Match Music

If you’re shopping for a music lover, you need to think carefully about what sort of music they like. After all, not all music is created equally. For example, a country music fan might love a painting of a cowboy herding cattle on the open range, but a hip-hop fan might be disappointed by that sort of painting. If you need ideas then consider looking at the album art used by the person’s favourite bands, they should give you hints about the aesthetic they are interested in.


Abstraction and Music

Abstract art is one style of art that practically cries out for musical accompaniment. Art that doesn’t make sense on its own can take on new meaning when viewed through the lense of music. After all, instrumental music and abstract art have a lot of similarities. They aren’t literal artforms; they operate based on emotions rather than clear symbols, words, and imagery. Classical music is great for more traditional and ordinary abstract pieces while jazz pairs well with chaotic and inventive abstract pieces. It’s also helpful to pick art that has a colour that matches the art you have in mind. The darker the music, the darker the colour, and vice versa with lighter music. Fans of harsh metal music will enjoy black imagery while pop music fans will probably prefer bright primary colours.
