Many modern artists choose to portray dalmatians whimsically in their dog canvas art. These works are generally done in flat styles and are perfect for decorating areas meant for younger children. Talented artists like Emma Parkins use this approach in their paintings. Her dalmatian artworks like 'Dalmatian Friends', 'Dalmatian Delight', and 'Gifted Dalmatian' help to display the active and caring nature of these unique canines in a way that is appealing to audiences of any age. Dog art aficionado Alfred Gockel also highlights the caring and rambunctious nature of these canines in his series 'Puppy Love', although his works are more decorative in nature and are suitable for interior design in any area of the home.
Pet portraiture is also a common venue for dalmatian paintings. These canine depictions can be done either on canvas or through photographic mediums and are enjoyed by many audiences around the world because of the uniqueness of the breed. Dalmatian pop art, as seen in Dean Russo's portrait 'Dalmatian' and 'Home is Where My Dog Is' by Veruca Salt is highly popular, although dog photography is the most traditional method.
