In Our Faces: The Trend We Thought Wouldn’t Stick Around

Heads up: though the majority of them are not, some of the product links in this post are affiliates.

Face it: there’s something about abstract face art.

Whether it’s because you swear the eyes are following you or it figuratively breathes some life into your space, it’s an art trend that clearly has legs.

In fact, a recent Apartment Therapy article reported that, according to Etsy, Etsy’s on-site searches for "faces" were up 38 percent compared to 2017.

My home is no exception to this face trend.

GUEST: “You have a lot of… faces.”

ME: “THANK YOU SO MUCH!”

GUEST: laughs nervously.

If you’re ready to deck your home out with a head-turning print or two, stick with me.

Where’d you get that face?

Here are my favorite sources for prints that are abstract, unusual and affordable.

this etsy face  print  is about as abstract as it gets. take a peek at it in my office gallery wall while you ask yourself ‘did she really change up that room again?’

Etsy. If you’re game to download and print your own art as cheaply as possible, try Etsy.

Search terms that’ll help you zero in: abstract face printable; abstract woman printable; floral woman printable; floral head printable.

If you’d rather have it shipped to you, try searching “print” instead of “printable.”

Society 6. I’ve definitely decked my home out in its fair share of Etsy prints, but one of my favorite sources for face prints is Society6.

Typing “abstract face” into the Society6 search bar will yield nearly 80 options, but to cut to the chase, here are the artists I browse:

art so nice, i printed it twice. you can find this abstract face  print  from etsy in both my bedroom and guest room.

  • Artist Dada22 takes the cake for all things unusual, eye-catching and vibrant.

  • Artist Corpsica 6 has a lot of vintage art with modern paint streaks and touches.

  • Artist Beth Hoeckel boasts some quirky pieces with faces and inanimate objects.

Society6 gives you several format options. I’d recommend prints, as opposed to posters.

The prints, while more expensive, are higher quality and printed on very thick paper.

The posters come rolled up on glossy paper that’s difficult to work with.

Have you hopped onto this trend? Let me know in the comments below my favorite Society 6 prints!
