10 Awesome Minimalist Wallpapers on Deviantart
DeviantArt is the largest art social networking site in the world. With over 13 million registered members submitting an average of 100,000 new pieces of artwork every day, there is the potential for anybody to find a wallpaper that they absolutely love.
DeviantArt is also pretty enormous, though, so if you’re after an awesome minimalist wallpaper, you’re in luck – here are ten great ones:
1. White Foliage by Sian44
This wallpaper makes minimal use of color (only blue and white), but doesn’t skimpy on eye-pleasing shapes and patterns. The design features white silhouetted tendrils of plants, soft grass and swirls of motes rising into the air against a blue background that subtly spreads outward in bars of varying shades.
2. Hot, Ice, Cosy and Frapp by dm29
A minimalistic yet adorable illustration of four forms of that much-loved treat: espresso. Simple flat-colored pictures of the beverages with a warm coffee brown background to make your desktop welcoming.
3. Hello, I am your wallpaper… by ClaymoreCCCLX
For those who like to humanize their computers a bit, here is a very simple and clean black wallpaper with gray text stating, “Hello, I am your wallpaper (and I love you).”
4. Minimalist Headlands by mkatich
A beautiful and sparse stretch of pale blue water and pale blue sky punctuated by a thin stretch of dark land and the large, round white moon.
5. The Grid by powerofpi
A strangely beautiful net-like grid of lines that fade smoothly through a rainbow of colors on a clean black background. Look closely and it seems to glow.
6. Minimalist Harmony by supersandra
A wallpaper made with three shades of blue. The design features a pleasant light blue background, the word “harmony” in indigo, and the Chinese kanji for “harmony” in a shade between the two.
7. Dark Candy by gepalex
A black background with streaks of color falling diagonally down from the upper right corner like meteors. Sleek.
8. Black Stripes – Very Big by iAmFreeman
Black and gray vertical pinstripes for your desktop with a slight gradient to make them darker as they go down the screen. Very stylish!
9. Afterglow by dsreaper
The black silhouette of a tree and grassy hill against a beautiful orange sky. There are rays and a white glow coming from behind the tree – it’s sunset.
10. Minimalist 1 by limon-butterfly
The title might not be very original, but the image creates the visually interesting illustration of octopus tentacles with suckers on them reaching upward by using simple lines and circular shapes. It’s all in black and white, and abstract enough to like even if you aren’t that fond of tentacled things.
This Is Just a Glimpse
On a site that gets 100,000 new pictures per day, narrowing the choices here down to ten was rather difficult. There are thousands more to choose from on DeviantArt, so if you didn’t find one here that suits your fancy, try browsing the Wallpaper section or doing a keyword search for “minimal wallpaper.” You’ll wish you had more than one desktop so that you could display more of them at once!
