Art for Slow Living

By Megan George

About this Curation

With its roots in the Italian food scene of the 80s and 90s, slow living is an anti-dote to the mindless busy-ness of modern life. Focusing on living life with intention and awareness, the idea of 'Slow' has grown incredibly popular in recent years with more people seeking balance and connection. With our personal universes shrinking down to the four walls of our homes in lockdown, many of us are embracing the virtues of slow living - quality time with family, home cooking, taking the time to admire (and smell) the roses in our gardens on regular walks.
The artworks in this curation match the core values of this lifestyle - simplicity, intention, balance, mindfulness and connection. Hit pause on your hectic schedule and take a moment to breathe in the the beauty of these simple moments captured on canvas. Do you feel the calm coming in? Welcome to Slow.
