The popularity of skulls and dragons in fantasy art has never been higher, so it is only natural that fantasy art is dominated by these images.
Dragons and skulls in paintings, drawings and t-shirts aren't the only popular medium and subject matter for fantasy art. Embossed leather and metal shields are also popular for fantasy art images. Skulls, dragons, surreal landscapes, and mythical creatures also feature prominently in modern fantasy art, and their presence in art has become increasingly common over the years. The trend also extends to cover art, which has moved from being reserved for the more traditional genre of fantasy to more inspired, imaginative, and design-forward styles.
Fairytales, folklore, and other such subjects became wildly popular in Europe in the Middle Ages. During the 19th century, however, depictions of folk themes were considered unacceptable by the strict Puritan society. Therefore, fairy and fantasy art were embraced as a response to the time's strict social norms. In the twentieth century, however, the popularity of fairy art reached a new level. Fairy art has now become the most popular genre of art, making it more accessible than ever.
