Andy Warhol, the famous pop artist, was fascinated with the graphic possibilities of culinary knives and made several different studies of them in 1981 and '82. Although these works aren't as well-known as his art depicting celebrities and mass-consumerism, they possess a wide range of possibility, color, and different pop art styles.
Another artist that depicted knives as a subject of their own was Erin Clark. Her work 'Sharp Edges' is portrayed in shades of black and gray on a white background and exudes equal amounts of intimacy and menace as the sharp aggression of the upright blades contrasts with the familiarity of the subject matter.
Knife art is a category that lends itself to graphic depiction which, in turn, gives this art many unique possibilities in the field of interior design. Its combination of shock value and familiar appeal make knife art perfect for modern styles that want to add some rebellious flair to their decor options.
