In many ways, the Caribbean has developed their own form of art by taking techniques and adapting them from cultures around the world. The result is one of the most fascinating combinations of artistic influences ever seen.
Almost any form of art can be found somewhere on one of the Caribbean islands. Tribal, abstract, surreal, landscapes, cityscapes, portraiture, flat and representational styles are easily available, all with their very own Caribbean flair that makes it unmistakable, and highly remarkable.
Themes of island life are common in Caribbean art along with artwork that represents each of the individual islands. Although they typically have some commonalities, the styles represented are individual to each island, with some preferring symbolic, tribal, or abstract contemporary art and others preferring to depict their lives in skilled realism.
With the richness and variety of the art available in the Caribbean, it comes as no surprise that this uniquely mixture of culture is widely used for home decor. The bright colors and original subjects of this art category add a splash of interest to any room but are generally most aesthetic in areas such as the living room or bedroom, where multiple color influences or styles can benefit from its presence.
