2024 Art Trends


We specialise in art here at The block Shop and we get it, choosing the right artwork for your space can be incredibly difficult – there’s just so much choice! Let's take a look at the art trends for 2024!


1. Indigenous art

Andy and Deb featured gorgeous pieces by Indigenous mother-daughter artist duo Miimi and Jiinda in their 2019 apartment at The Oslo and that is what started our love of indigenous artwork at The Block.

The Block Shop has since seen an explosion in demand for similar pieces. Art from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island artists has continued to be a big trend ever since with year on year The Block's most loved pieces coming from our Indigenous artists, collectors right across the globe continue to snap up pieces to add to their collections.

We continue to be amazed at the diversity and varying styles in our Indigenous art collection we have online, take a look at it here.


Kamilya Lowana Coastal YooroorroomCoastal Yooroorroom by Artist Kamilya Lowana White was the most popular and highest sold artwork from The Block 2023, having featured in Kyle and Leslie's kitchen, this piece was a fan favourite!

Lizzy Stagemen Marrunga Yubaa The Block Lizzy Stageman's Marrunga Yubaa (meaning sweet rain)  had her own moment when she appeared in Ronnie and Georgia's Hallway in The Block 2021, "The artwork started selling as soon as the episode aired and has remained consistently popular ever since" says The Block Shop.

Rachel and Ryan Brad Turner
Rachel and Ryan's winning living and dining room featured artwork by Brad Turner and Cara Sanders 'Owlet', 'Numbuh-ba Jagun' in the Bundjalung-Yugambeh language means Back to Earth. This new awakening is not only sincerely heartfelt but has a powerful and profound message about reconciliation!

Pastel colours

Dusky pinks, pale blues, beige, coral – these colours have all made major comebacks in recent years. So it’s hardly surprising that artwork in these hues is trending once more. Whether it’s abstract art, landscapes or framed photographic prints, if they feature pastel colours, they’re bang on-trend. These look great when paired with natural woven textures and stone surfaces.


Angie Summa ArtThis year Angie Summa's 'Three is not a crowd' featured in Jenny and Dylan's winning hallway, no suprises that the judges and viewers alike have fallen in love with this pastel pretty!


Lady Love Print The Block Shop
The aptly named "Lady Love" appeared in The Block 2021 and we have loved her ever since at Insider Style.

amanda hinkelmannIndigenous artist Amanda Hinkelmann is proving to be a popular choice this season on The Block, the perfect mix of two trends! 

Native flora and fauna

It’s so lovely to see Australian flora and fauna getting the attention it deserves on our walls. Artwork depicting local plants and animals continues to be a big trend in 2022, with eucalyptus, in both imagery and colour, particularly popular. 


Generation Artwork The Block ShopOne things for sure if Ronnie and Georgia use an artwork its about to start a trend... ! Two trends are nailed in one artwork here with the beautiful Australian native imagery aswell as that oh so pretty eucalypt colouring.

Overblown flowers

Whether photos or paintings, pictures of large overblown flowers continue to be a popular trend. These look particularly good when positioned centrally in an otherwise plainly decorated room. If you’re looking for a statement piece for a bedroom, floral prints look fantastic over beds. 

Jen Shewring artA popular choice for The Block 2022 is artist Jen Shewring who's artworks have been used in multiple houses this season. "It was having kids that really cemented painting into my routine. I found I’d be energised while painting a couple of nights a week after they were all asleep. I’d grab a glass of red and slip into my studio, play music and paint until midnight. I’d be so excited the next morning to race into my studio to see the new painting in the daylight." Jen told Insider Style.

Anna Blatman Art The Block

The Iconic piece , 'Orange Galore' chosen by Kirsty and Jessie in The Block 2021 shone the spotlight on artist Anna Blatman, we love all of her art but the bright flowers have a special place in our hearts... and walls!


5. Place name posters

Place name posters – especially those with a vintage look – are a big trend for 2022. These look fantastic blown up large and framed in living areas or kitchens. Pick your favourite place and fulfil that wanderlust, or show where your loyalties lie.


Macedon Ranges ArtCRT Prints specialise in place name posters, and we've found the perfect piece for our neighbours!!

Melbourne Artwork The BlockWe here at 'Insider Style' might be abit biased but we do love Melbourne especially for all things art.


Let’s face it, 2021 was a tough year. No wonder ‘inspiration art’ continues as a big trend in 2022. Not sure what this is? It’s basically anything that sparks joy or inspires you to get out there and live your best life. Think framed inspirational quotes or paintings of sunrises or sunsets – anything that make us happy!

Clear Water Photography The Block ShopSitting on a surfboard in crystal clear water is bound to make anyone happy! And travel... its been a long slog, but we can all dream, which is why hanging it on your wall is the next best thing.

Macedon Ranges artThis season has seen alot of inspirational artwork giving a nod to Macedon Ranges where The Block 2022 was filmed. This piece from Tom and Sarah Janes Living Room is 'Summer at Macedon Ranges' by Jen Shewring.

Palm Springs/Mid-Century images

The Palm Springs aesthetic continues to be a major trend in 2022, and artwork reflecting this is still popular with collectors. We’re talking framed Slim Aarons photographs, pictures of cacti, or images capturing mid-century homes in and around the Palm Springs area. Need inspo? Take a look back through the Block-winning home of Jimmy and Tam

8. Street art/ backyard murals

Art doesn’t need to be confined to indoors – backyard artwork is a big trend for 2022. Ronnie and Georgia used Melbourne-based street artist Steve Cross to create a custom mural for their garden back in 2017, and the trend has only grown in recent years. Many artists – like Steve – are available for commissions, or you might want to consider using decal stickers (just check they are suitable for outdoors first).

Ronnie and Georgia Block backyard street art
Street Art continues to grow in popularity especially in backyards - Ronnie and Georgia's Block outdoor area still very much on-trend. 

If there's one thing we've seen on The Block this year it's that Grafico Walls is a popular choice! We haven't got to outdoor's week yet but if the interiors trend is anything to go by.... their might just be more in the backyards?


Tom and Sarah Jane wallpaperTom and Sarah-Jane are big fans of Grafico wallpaper, this choice was controversial amoungst the viewers, but it won them the room so that is what matters.


Dylan and Jenny master bedroom

Dylan and Jenny are also on board, their Mater Bedroom featured this beauty, 'Australian Ferns' Wallpaper.
