Maximalist Interior

Sometimes, more is more! This joyful philosophy, at the heart of a maximalist interior, is based on the belief that in order to be happy, you should surround yourself with things that you love, and often in excessive quantities. How do you create a maximalist home interior? Get inspired by layering texture, pattern and color, and feel free to experiment with as many as you like! Complement this with oversized, ornate furniture and bold, statement decor. 

Within visual arts, the maximalist movement is commonly seen as a response to the minimalist art movement in Western art. It's also linked with the rise of the Neo-expressionism movement of the late 1970s, which is characterized by intense subjectivity, rough handling of materials, and vivid colors. One of the artists who is widely associated with the rise of maximalism is American painter David Salle, whose canvases are packed with color and activity.

So what makes art maximalist? Think richness and excess, channeled through bold colors, gold tones, busy canvases, giant sculptures, and an abundance of different patterns and textures. Today, artists explore maximalism using a variety of mediums. For example, French artist Bastien Cuenot's stunningly colorful and monumental sculptures are designed to take up room and command attention in any space. 

Meanwhile, the paintings by artist Guive Khosravi, whose artistic universe is heavily influenced by Pop Art and cartoons, are overflowing with vibrant color and activity. One could even say that each corner of the canvas reveals a new discovery everytime one returns to admire the work.

The young and emerging abstract painter Nathanaël Koffi's signature style embodies this maximalist philosophy. His work often combines explosions of color with an unusual support, such as an old skateboard, or ornate frames. 

Feeling inspired to live a life of exuberant excess? Explore Artsper's carefully curated selection of art designed to create the perfect maximalist home interior!
