Many modern kitchen paintings focus on streamlined designs with eye-catching color schemes. As such, many contemporary fine art prints, such as Andy Warhol's infamous 'Campbell's Soup I (Tomato), 1968', are included in this category. However, these contemporary pictures primarily focus on objects that would be found or used in the kitchen.
Modern kitchen art often includes produce images which are depicted in new and exciting ways. Works such as 'Sliced Grapefruit', for example, have a retro feel thanks to the positioning and presentation of the subject while still being considered a representational kitchen print. Abstracted produce images are also popular and are often emotive of the produce they depict, as seen in the 'Smorgasbord' series by Lanie Loreth.
Many modern kitchen prints also use photographic mediums. These dramatic works often feature utensils that are used in either the act of cooking or eating. However, the primary characteristic of these urban household pictures is the high amount of contrast between light and dark that is seen in these images. Dramatic kitchen photography, such as 'Spoons' by Mike Feeley, is an example of this type of work.
