MINTED’S FIGURATIVE ART COLLECTION
If you’re looking for originality, you’ve come to the right place. Minted is proud to share a collection of figurative art, which is typically described as modern art that is derived from real objects (especially the human figure), and so by definition is also sometimes referred to as representational art. Famous historical artists in this genre include Claude Monet, Henri Matisse, Van Gogh, and occasionally Salvador Dali. Minted collects thousands of art submissions on an ongoing basis from independent artists around the world and we have curated this collection to focus specifically on artwork depicting the beauty of the human form.
CELEBRATE THE HUMAN FIGURE THROUGH VARIOUS TECHNIQUES
Artists express themselves through many different styles and techniques. Whether you enjoy the look of a charcoal sketch or a crisp photograph, we are sure you will find a piece or two that catches your eye. Below are some styles to consider:
- Sketch/Drawing: There is something beautiful about the minimalist nature of pencil drawings and charcoal sketches. Depicting the human form, anatomy, and muscle curves, figurative art shows movement as the dance of life. In one drawing with a black pen, a series of images of a woman awakening could make the perfect selection for a bedroom wall. In another design, a figure is crouching and showing their energy and vitality through the formation of perfectly drawn ink lines. These options make for the perfect modern wall decor to match any room’s color palette.
- Fine Art Photography: Figurative photography options in our assortment include an imaginative piece showing an interpretation of a woman in full bloom, with flowers coming out of her head. The intrigue and playfulness are sure to be a conversation starter. In another piece, you’ll see a woman’s legs protruding from the water, as if she just dove into the ocean. Reflect on how photographers stage or capture the human figure in motion. Continue your hunt for the perfect framed picture in our full photography art collection, which has hundreds of original pieces to choose from.
- Painting: Figurative paintings come in many styles. Minted’s collection includes pieces that feature a crisp oil painting of a young girl with a crow on her arm to a more relaxed painting of a couple on the couch relaxing. If you don’t see what you’re looking for in this curated collection, you can also check out our full collection of thousands of fine art prints.
- Modern Abstract: These handmade pieces will have your imagination running on overdrive. Select a piece displaying a woman diving into tables or a work made from a collage of shapes and imagery that seem to center around an aimless traveler. If you’d like to see more artwork open to interpretation, Minted has a larger collection of abstract art and mixed media/collage art.

CUSTOMIZE YOUR FIGURATIVE ART
Whether you’re looking to personalize a large piece of artwork for your living room or a subtle small wall hanging for the bathroom, Minted has many sizes to choose from so you can find the perfect fit for any space. First off, decide if you would prefer a landscape-oriented, portrait-oriented, or square wall hanging. You can use our filters at the top of this page to only see designs in your preferred orientation. From there, you can select from print sizes ranging from 5” x 7” on the small side, all the way up to 48” x 70”. You can also decide what format to have your selection printed in, be it matted and framed behind plexiglass, or printed as canvas art (with or without a frame). Ensure your art selection fits your decor and adds extra charm with a custom frame. Choose from standard options like walnut wood and rich black wood, or specialty frames like brushed silver or matte brass frames.
CONSIDER CUSTOM SILHOUETTE ART OF A LOVED ONE
If you’d prefer a nod to figurative art with a more personalized look, create a custom silhouette of a family member, friend, or pet. Upload an image of your loved one and Minted’s design associates will create a custom silhouette from the image. You can pick the print style, color, and even feature a personalized name. Experiment with standard, foil-pressed, or letterpress printing and select a frame that goes with your decor or the decor of the recipient’s home. This is always a sweet, surprising gift that is truly personalized.
