Black and white art is a stylistic medium where the use of black or white can draw focus to or from the subject, at times creating a style which is minimal in style.

While black and white are the predominant colours present, other colours can be used and incorporated, but are often muted and diluted so as not to draw away from the prominence of the namesake shades.

There are no strict parameters on what the subject may be within the composition, nor is there on the medium that is utilised, and could incorporate paint, pencil, or even printmaking.

While not always the case, black and white art can be used to represent conflicting or contrasting ideas, such as the dichotomy of good and evil, or that of the pure and impure. Black and white art has been used and recreated across almost all cultures, throughout most of history.
