It’s time to put away the winter blahs and greys – 2010 is going to be all about bright, bold colour!  The neon trend is making its way across the pond in the coming year, so expect to see lots of fearless colour to wash away that gloomy winter palour that may currently be festering in your living room.

We’ve loving the fearlessness of this upcoming home trend but aren’t quite ready to turn our homes into a ’90s rave space  – just yet!

If you’d like to experiment with a little non-commital hue, Brighton-based fine artist Annett E. Bank may have just the trick to inject a little colour into your life.  Her recent collection of striking retro-style figurative expression paintings hold their own against  juicy orange wall paint (above) but can also equally blend with a more muted palette (below).

A selection of her beautiful multi-layered paintings of the body in movement are a sophisticated take on the hyper-colour trend, and a worthy investment that will prove fruitful after the glow of the neon trend wanes.

These three pieces are all available on Annett’s website, and start at £750 each.  A selection of her work can be seen at the Saffron Art Gallery in East Sussex, but the artist also features her work at the Affordable Art Fair in London.
