Many of the artichoke paintings available among modern art audiences are decorative in nature. Unlike most framed culinary prints, which focuses on the act of cooking and are only suitable for one area of the home, framed artichoke fine art is ideal for decoration regardless of locale. Because of its flower-like shape, many modern artists use this form of natural art to defy conventional modes of thinking and portray artichokes in the same settings as flowers, as seen in 'Artichoke-Abundance' by Ron Jenkins. This intriguing treatment of everyday subject matter breathes fresh life into still life representations of vegetable art.
As an art category, artichoke art helps to bridge the gap between decorative subjects and useful objects, such as vegetables, found around the home. This merging of illustrative styles has culminated into a unique form of modern natural prints that are not only aesthetically pleasing but astounding in their sensitivity to the natural world.
