Modern Art for Sale on Catawiki

Modern Art is distinguishable from other artistic periods through one chief characteristic: innovation. Founded in the belief of better reflecting the realities and hopes of modern societies, it signifies a break away from more conservative values and realistic depictions. 

Modern Art is a culmination of often abstract, experimental forms, which take our visual experience to new heights beyond an appreciation of its style. What we can find is a deep and profound connection to a piece, resonating and inspiring. 

The kind of emotion you want to bottle up and put away for another day.

Let Modern Art take you on a journey

With the power to deliver more than just aesthetic pleasure, Modern Art rewards us with a multisensory experience. Through symbolism, innovation and iconography, it’s a world of feeling and expression. 

From portraits to prints, tapestries to talking points, sculptures to statues, that place inside your home is calling out for some art. Turn your space into a gallery and bring an iconic contemporary artist inside. 

Looking for inspirational modern artwork that evokes those feelings of connection? Searching for something which satisfies your senses? Discover it here in our Modern Art Banksy online auctions.
