Contemporary Halloween style for tasty holiday decor
As with any contemporary art, there are Halloween themes in all shapes and forms, from more traditional watercolor drawings to modern digital prints and 3D art. Pleasantly affordable and immensely decorative, it can not only be a part of your special Halloween decor, but also everyday wall art. And there are not just pumpkins and skulls, though there are many of them. Superheroes, Disney characters and others are surprisingly common in contemporary Halloween art.
There are more framed print applications than you might think. If you do not want to perforate your walls for holiday wall art, you can still make good use of these frames.
Contemporary Halloween art prints
Art prints are the cheapest. They also come in a bewildering array of designs and options, so you can choose whatever you like from a welcome sign to a decorative printed pumpkin that does not get bad before you get a chance to clean it up.
Etsy has quite a few sellers offering different prints and printouts. You may need to provide your own framework, but that’s the simpler part.
To create a tasteful holiday table or console display, simply lean your Halloween-themed frame against the wall and supplement with additional decorations. Simple and effortless!
Halloween chalkboard art ideas
Blackboard is the best canvas for temporary art. Draw Halloween bats and pumpkins and wipe them off in time for Christmas. It’s fun for kids and adults, and content can be changed any day, if you want, at your whim. To create a character or “canvas” of any size, use the chalk or blackboard color instead of searching for the right type of blackboard.
Some prints also come in the form of signboards, but of course they have a drawback, as they can not be changed.
String & 3D art
String Art requires some time and dedication. But it can also be bought ready. The beauty of the art of drawing is that it is very different from the traditional painted or printed pieces and is characterized by thread patterns that emerge in the process of creation.
3D art can also add a more realistic atmosphere to your decor. Of course, it depends on what kind of wall art you choose. This framed artwork looks pretty lifelike if you ask us.
Sugar Skull Prints
Like everything pretty thing? Sugar skulls, symbolic of the Day of the Dead, are much more decorative than normal. Printed, drawn or cut out, sugar skulls always look beautiful.
You can find your favorite characters and superheroes depicted in Sugar Skull form, keeping it as a year-round wall art. As you can see, they can look pretty.
Even a floral watercolor painting of a skull is a spectacular wall art idea with a hint of morbidity. It’s a great compromise between a sweet, not scary sugar skull and a morbid, grim human skull.
The theme dictates many contents of contemporary Halloween art. So you can always find pumpkins, crows and bats that lurk somewhere in the piece. They can be simple and decorative or spooky and vivid, depending on the kind of art you prefer – minimal and nondescript or narrative and elaborate.
A simple watercolor pumpkin can certainly exert an influence in the decor. But the artistic pictures can also tell a story or bring something into your holiday theme.
Skulls are the most popular contemporary Halloween art objects. They look positively deadly in any execution. Even dressed in flowers, you’ll stare a skull or smile that’s disturbingly enough.
You can create a very contemporary Halloween frame with a simple printable skull. Additionally decorated with black candles and pumpkins, it can become a very spooky table decoration.
Displaying skulls are even more popular and can also help complement your contemporary Halloween art.
Canvas Art & Illustrations
Although art prints are very common, canvas art is still available. Digital illustrations are also popular and often offer such details and colors that would be impossible to achieve on screen.
There is something artistic about it that makes this kind of art more scary and scary. Note Greg Pro’s character design. These red eyes look amazingly scary.
Colorful contemporary Halloween art
Do not expect all Halloween art to come in black and orange. Just like decorations, contemporary works of art come in all sorts of bright shades, shades and tones. Digital art offers so rich colors, they seem to shine.
Such artworks can become an unexpected focal point in a minimalist modern space that is often colorless. However, if you want to incorporate a colorful artwork into an existing color scheme, it’s best to choose a piece that matches the room palette.
Since signs are so popular in decor, we could not omit them from the list. Besides, they can be both artistic and decorative.
With a blackboard, you can create your own Halloween sign for a wall or sideboard screen. Use colored chalk to highlight certain elements of your character, if you really want to highlight it.
Other Halloween attributes such as zombies and ghosts make perfect art objects. And these fascinating, cool and simply different pieces prove it.

It can be as minimal as the decor itself, but there are also pieces full of history, details and color. Make use of the virtues of the arts to create the best Halloween decor this year while you decorate your home with painted pumpkins, freshly cut gloomy flowers and exquisitely shaped candles.
