Tropical and Haunting Art Prints By 83 Oranges
The specialist design studio, 83 Oranges, blends photography, illustration, and graphic design to create their unique modern art prints. Nature in art comes in many different forms, tropical and bright, or dark and mysterious are a couple of them that you will find in these bold artworks.
In the more pop art prints from this trendy studio, the lomographic tinted ocean art is met by a brilliant pink skyline, or a swash of chalk pink paint. As well as this, the contemporary matching of plant prints against a coral pink backdrop will add flourish to any space. Also, you can opt for the quirky topography print which actually combines the word flourish with against something a bit more fruity. Somethin for those font lovers out there.
83 Oranges also captures a bevy of vast landscapes showcasing isolated forests. Valleys slope off into the distance and paths lead off into cloudy mist. As if frozen in time, the landscape prints depict a reality that we don’t usually get to see, occasionally tinted with a human touch of candied red.

Papercut Illustrations By Yetiland
Yetiland is an artist that always stays true to a very distinct and unique style. So, harnessing the papercut style of art that was first discovered in his childhood, angular and modern illustrations evoke familiar shapes like trees and the sun in a highly stylized way.
With a nod to traditional Japanese art, Yetiland infuses typical scenes like a curling wave, mountains and blossom trees with his own flavour. So the result is often attentively framed art scenes of nature in art, like the fox print of the vibrantly orange creature treading across snow in the dazzling rays of sunshine.

Joyful Nature Illustrations By Terry Fan Art
Terry Fan’s whimsical depictions of nature in art will bring a smile to everybody’s face. Imaginative and fantastical, his ocean art features a truly giant whale. Also, playful flying elephants which would make an inspiring addition to a children’s bedroom. Additionally, the soft colours and delightfully painted texture gives Terry Fan’s underwater world a tranquil presence in the home.
If you’re looking for something a bit more adult though, there’s Fan’s tattoo art inspired memento mori, this skull art is mostly edgy but darkly beautiful.
Minimal Art By Robert Farkas
What more do you need than the simplicity of footsteps in the snow? Nature’s own minimalism is realized here through stylistic illustration in this Robert Farkas art print in a bright combination of red and blue.
The distinctive shapes of nature in art rendered in Farkas’ inky animal print are a great option for something that will really pop out on the wall. Most of all, his haunting and heroic portraits of wolves are fierce and evocative.
Nature Art By Nicebleed
Francis Minoza and Laurence Minoza are the sibling team that makes up Nicebleed. Their nature in art comes in a beautifully entangled form. Weaving together a fox with thorny branches and impaled wasps, this monochrome vision spiked with orange depicts a spiraling bird’s nest with plenty of intrigue.

In these surprising vacation type prints you can find some romantic pool times seems to be straight out of the 70’s. Surrounded by a dramatic black and white rock face. Embracing nature in art, Treece has also created a playful and innocent collage of two children dancing in the valley. Additionally, did you notice that kids rule in these landscape images? A stream of them seem to cycle across an impossible path towards a naked woman watching from the rocks, or a giant child uses the city as if it’s his play pen.
Celebrating nature through wit and surrealism, in these landscape art prints, the hills really are alive with the sound of music.
Vintage Nature Prints By Teagan White
Inspired by vintage nature prints, Teagan White uses a wonderfully nostalgic colour palette to create arrangements of flora and fauna. Teagan creates from Minnesota, where she received her BFA in illustration from the Minneapolis College of Art & Design in 2012. Unsurprisingly, her spare time is spent trudging through forests and fields, making friends with gulls, watching rabbits play and wild flowers blossom.
Teagan White’s heartwarming collection of nature and art is blooming with autumnal colours and whimsical creatures like owls, butterflies, and bees perching on an oak tree. Whereas in some more gruesome tangles, creatures like deer and animal skulls are found gracefully returning to the earth. In one example of this, you have the contrast of new life with baby foxes playing and rabbits nestled in a burrow. A nearby skeleton vanishes into the ground.
A symphonic combination of illustration and watercolour form these detailed art prints. Humble and sweet, yet so alive with the wilderness and tragic reality of nature.

Also, it seems like there’s a hint of those vintage nature prints to this one, updated with a brilliant blue, modern art finish.
Whimsical Nature in Art By Skye Zambrana
It’s rare to spot photographer, artist and designer Skye Zambrana without her camera. Having lived her entire life in a remote mountain retreat of California, the magnificence of the landscape is a constant inspiration for her nature in art.
Hold the world in the palm of your hand in this mind-bending nature photography print by Zambrana. Reminding us that just like in photography, we can carry our favourite images with us wherever we go.
Additionally, the stark and wintery tree seems humble and kind in an outstretched hand. What an ideal art print for an office space where sometimes you need to be assured that you can deal with more than you think. Furthermore, with an analog feel, the miniature nature print has a great sense of depth.
In another piece, Zambrana reminds us that good images are often in the simplicity of their arrangement. With this minimal and careful collection of feathers, there is a combining of nature with the stylistic hands of the artist. With the feathers’ varied shades of intricate browns and dazzling cobalt blue, there’s more than enough beauty in nature for these incredible objects to stand alone.
