Caricature Canvas Prints

As you are getting ready to decorate any space, there are probably a million questions going through your mind. You are about to go on a journey, one that not many people enjoy. So, obviously, you start by thinking about what sort of things you would like in your space. Maybe you want two or three paintings, a sculpture in the corner, some shelves along the far wall, and a few plants underneath them. Then, comes the mildly depressing realization of just how much space you actually have. You may have to cut those two or three paintings down to one, and forget about your mini, in-home forest. But finally, with the recognition that unless you are a millionaire your space will be limited, you can start to plan the layout of your room and look for pieces that fit the overall feeling you are going for. From there, decorating can feel like a blur of searching through furniture store after furniture store, browsing a million websites, and going to incredibly overpriced art galleries.

If you are looking for something genuinely unique, it may take anything from a day to a month to find exactly what you are looking for. It is a very stressful and time-consuming process. But, what if it didn’t have to be that way? By narrowing down your search to one specific type of art, you can save yourself hours of department store trauma. So, with that in mind, if you have hunted and hunted, but, still can’t find the right fun, creative, and enjoyable piece you are looking for, we have a recommendation perfect for you: caricature canvas prints. Though still a broad field of art, there is nothing quite like it, and it is a guaranteed hit.

What is Caricature?

Defined by Oxford Dictionaries as “a picture, description, or imitation of a person in which certain striking characteristics are exaggerated in order to create a comic or grotesque effect”, it is most likely that your first interaction to caricature art came from a beachside boardwalk, a fair, or an amusement park. Many caricature artists choose these locations to provide a fun, and often times comedic, souvenir of your time there. Made from intricate lines and bold colors, they are a perfect combination of distortion with elegance.

However, caricature art can be traced all the way back to 16th Century Bologna, Italy, where the founding brothers of the Carracci Academy would draw small portraits during the breaks from work. These portraits would almost be a representation of what the brothers saw behind people’s outwardly appearance, and the art form became so popular that in the early 1800s Charles Philipon, owner of the La Caricature magazine, would often create caricatures where he made King Louis-Phillippe’s head into the shape of a pear.

From there, caricature art became highly politicized, as it still is today across the world. Used as a means of slandering opposing political candidates, and mocking situations politicians had put themselves in, caricature art has become a popular form of expression, and has survived all the way from the newspaper era to the digital age. Many people think of caricature art as a way to show the ludicrously and extreme nature of a situation by demonstrating it with an even more ludicrous and extreme form of art. However, the frequent connotation with political art doesn’t mean that caricature can’t be used for other purposes, specifically less mocking ones. Rather, it has become a popular way to capture individuals in moments such as prom, weddings, date nights, and anywhere else a caricature artist happens to be. The ideal combination of art and amusement, caricature is an incredibly multi-faceted form of art, which is part of what has led to its popularity throughout the ages.

Why Would I want to Decorate with that?

Though throughout history caricature has been used to push political ideals or make a mockery of its subjects, nowadays it can be a great way of capturing some of life’s most fun and entertaining moments. Caricature is a one of a kind form of expression, meant to show of the unique nature of your one of a kind experiences. Though it may be a bit too visually “loud” for some people, if you consider yourself a humorous, comedic person, caricature art is perfect for you. However, that’s not to say that caricature art isn’t for everyone to enjoy. Due to the flexible nature of caricature, it is easily possible for someone who isn’t in love with what caricature people look like to still enjoy caricature art.

Caricature prints can be made on a wide variety of subjects. Though people may be a popular one, you can get caricature canvas prints of everything from a sheep to a cologne bottle to balloon animals. Caricature is also on a spectrum, meaning that some caricature pieces are much less distorted than others. It really comes down to an artist’s personal style, as well as what you enjoy. So, regardless of personal taste and desire, there is a caricature print out there for you.

Why Canvas Printing?

You may be questioning why you should specifically invest in canvas printing. It does, after all, just sound easier to get a caricature painting done and just hang it up right after. However, caricature tends to be done on fairly flimsy pieces of paper. Even if framed, it is all too easy for any sort of water damage to occur. Not to mention, caricature printing just looks awkward when stuffed into a nice frame. But, since there is too much risk involved in just hanging the piece of paper, that really leaves you with one good option: canvas printing. With customizable canvas prints, it is incredibly easy to get your caricature preserved in a long lasting, durable canvas that will make it through decorating process and all the years to come.

Also, canvas printing is a unique form of art. While many people like to stick to traditional paintings, you can breathe a sense of fresh air into your space by using canvas printing instead. They are remarkable easy to decorate with and are incredibly versatile in placements. Caricature canvas prints can go everywhere from hung on your wall to resting on a TV stand, and even just leaning against furniture. One of the best parts about canvas printing is how many different ways you can arrange canvases in your chosen location. From a mural of smaller canvases on the wall, to a decorated shelf that can be switched out based on the season, there are no limit on your creativity. Regardless of how you chose to style your canvas prints, they are a great way to bring a modern look into your living space, and the caricature effect only emphasizes all the creative energy that comes with them.

What Sort of things can I get Printed?

The better question to ask is what sort of things you can’t get printed. This is the digital age of humanity, meaning that if you want it, there’s a 99.5% chance that you can find it. Whether you are looking for a creative rendition of your favorite movie character, or just a stylized picture to hang in the family room, there is something for everyone when it comes to caricature. However, if you are thinking specifically about certain areas in your life, we have some suggestions.

But, before you get swept up in decorating, remember that caricatures can also make a fantastic gift, perfect for someone you have a fairly fun, humorous relationship with. Though we definitely don’t recommend giving your boss an extreme caricature that highlights his receding hairline and all the bags under his eyes, a humorous interpretation of a loved one may be a perfect birthday gift. Or, if you are looking for a unique gift for a child, a caricature print of their favorite TV show character or their favorite singer could be a great alternative to yet another video game/ makeup kit. Not to mention, if you are looking for a joke gift for a significant other, there is nothing quite like a glamorous caricature of yourself dressed in something humorous or doing something your spouse would find hilarious.

But, caricatures are good for even more than just gifts and decorating (we did, after all, say they were pretty versatile). Caricature prints can also be used to commemorate some of life’s biggest events. For some couples, the perfect way to remember their wedding is a print of them together on that day. This can make a great bedroom decoration and serve as a great way to remember your special night, every night.  Another fun thing to celebrate with a caricature print is a family reunion, or any other event where the family is all together. It gives everyone something to look back on fondly and makes for a fun tradition that can be passed down for years to come. No matter what the event, caricature is an awesome souvenir, and one that is guaranteed to set your celebration out from the others.

If you are looking to decorate your house, the type of caricature you should get depends on what you would like the feeling in the room to be, as well as what the colors are. If, for example, you are starting to decorate a child’s nursery, caricature canvas prints of animals such as lambs and frogs can be a cute addition into the space. If your nursery has a lighter color such as yellow on the walls, any sort of blue, ocean themed caricature prints would be a nice complement to the shade. Or, on the other hand, if you are looking to decorate your living room and think that a canvas print would be a nice touch, a caricature of the whole family would be great to place over the TV or the couch. However, if you’re not looking for a caricature with people, caricature flowers can be a soothing addition to a living space. If your walls are a white or cream color, any sort of red caricature objects would like nice over it, including things such as Japanese cherry blossoms. For any sort of game room in the house, caricature prints of TV show characters, movie stars, game logos, or professional athletes would be an ideal way to foster the vibe in the space and add a fun decoration to an already fun space.

We love caricature canvas prints. They are a quality, durable product that can be used for so many different purposes it’s hard to believe. Caricature itself has such a rich history all over the world and has been used for so many purposes. Its style is incredibly identifiable, and it serves as a great reminder that art is meant to incite the joyful, childlike nature in all of us, just as much as it can reflect the dramatic side. Canvas printing is a beautiful, modern, stylized art form that reminds all of us to be creative with our space. Combined, caricature canvas prints can be a great reminder not to take life so seriously, and to enjoy the moment that one is in.

So, how are you going to use your caricature canvas print? Are you going to show a friend how much they mean to you on their birthday? Are you going to give your child a Christmas gift they will never forget? Are you going to create a nursery that reflects all the love you have in your heart for your unborn child? Are you going to show every person that walks into your house just how much your family means to you? Regardless of how you chose to use your caricature canvas print, we know that you’re going to find a way to make it meaningful, enjoyable, and above all else, fun. So, what are you waiting for? Get your caricature canvas print today and start showing the world just how cool you are!
