Still life art has existed for practically all of human history, and typically, though not always, portray an inanimate or man-made object as the subject, falling into the centre of the composition.

Often times, bowls of fruit and vases complemented with flowers are the subject of choice for Still life art, but can also comprise of people and the natural world.

The subjects within Still life works tend to convey a deeper meaning and are often chosen intentionally by the artist to impart a message or thought, such as with Andy Warhol’s Campbell’s Soup Cans series, carrying with it the thought that one should embrace modernity.

Still life art can art also convey the subtle beauty of a moment, particularly in pieces portraying simple scenes, and can even be biographical in nature.
