10 Floral Artworks To Get Us In The Mood For Spring
For all you happy flower girls - from Koons to The Flower Guy
Gorgeous Listicles 11 Mar 2021

The sun is beginning to come out and Spring is on our doorstep. Finally, we don’t need to wear 50 layers when we leave the house and our parks are beginning to sprout dozens upon dozens of blooms. So, here are 10 floral artworks to get you in the mood for Spring!

Georgia O’Keeffe’s Dreamy Blooms

Perhaps the most famous painter of flowers was Georgia O’Keeffe, apparently she depicted a mega 200 across her career. There are many who speculate that the images are actually a comment on female sexuality, as the paintings pay specific attention to the plants’ reproductive elements, but we can neither confirm nor deny this hypothesis. Whatever you think of O’Keeffe’s flowers, you cannot deny their status as icons of the art world. 

Brandy Kraft’s Floral Inventions

Brandy Kraft’s flowers are so realistic they look like scientific photographs. Kraft’s blooms are bright and cheerful. They are so realistic that they’ll make you want to look at plants in a whole new way the next time you get outside. Basically, these paintings will make you appreciate Spring in a whole new way!

Monet’s Nympheas

Perhaps the most stunning display of art in the world is the installation of Monet’s water lilies at the Orangerie in Paris. The awe inspiring works leave many speechless, and it’s easy to see why. The ultimate flowers to get lost in as you embark on your Spring adventures. 

The Flower Guy’s Magazine Images

The Flower Guy gives magazine imagery the flower treatment, and it’s something you could do at home too! Michael De Feo believes in the power of flowers, and we just love his vision. He has been creating work for over 25 years across the world, and we’re hoping he’ll pass by all of our cities soon! 

This Shadowy Rose by Mai Al Moataz

This glowing rose is beyond dreamy. Mai Al Moataz has made many photographs of roses that really speak to the soul. There is something super beautiful yet fragile about her flowers that really inspire us about the potential of Spring. 

Andy Warhol’s Screenprint Blooms

Warhol’s screenprint flowers are instantly recognisable. The iconic series of pop art prints are bright and full of energy, exactly the kind of inspo we need as we move from Winter into Spring. 

Marcella Trimarchi’s Art Flowers

Marcella Trimarchi has experience working at Versace, Gianni, Tom Ford and Valentino. Now? She works for herself, embracing her creative side on her own terms. And how does she do that? Through flowers! Initially inspired by New York City’s flower district, her elegant designs have been influenced by the delicate leaves of the Lilygrass. Lovely! 

Van Gogh’s Sunflowers

Some of the world’s best loved flowers are Van Gogh’s sunflowers. You may not know, but Van Gogh painted several versions of these iconic flowers. The different shades of yellow bring instant joy. In fact, the artist is quoted as once saying: “How wonderful yellow is. It stands for the sun.” We love that!

Jeff Koons’s Floral Puppy

What’s better than flowers and puppies? A puppy made out of flowers, duhhh! Koons’s puppy – a West Highland terrier – was created to inspire optimism, confidence and security. It was inaugurated at the Guggenheim in Bilbao in 1997. And, while the work inspired a terrorist plot, we can’t help but smile when we look at those flowers dressed up as a dog. 

Basim Magdy’s Thoughtful Flowers

The flowers in Basim Magdy’s film 13 Essential Rules For Understanding The World really give us food for thought, not just for Spring, but for all times. Of course, we love the floral element, but we’re inspired by what the flowers have to say even more.
