Many works of casual chic art are actually abstract images with no recognizable subject matter. These images often contain relaxing or meditative themes and are highly popular in professional venues for their thematic and aesthetic properties. Abstract images like 'Inner Sanctuary I' by Norm Olson and 'Blue Foam I' by Randy Hibberd are characteristic of this form of casual chic art.
Although casual chic art isn't considered an official part of the pop art movement, many of these graphic design pictures contain elements from pop art paintings. This can mean stylized elements, as seen in 'Thai Spice II' by Kate Birch, or graphic design pictures like 'Filament De Vie II' by Shirley Novak.
