Yes. We are all guilty of staying in our bathroom longer than we should. Why not make the experience ‘unique’ with this bathroom art?
I don’t know about you, but I don’t want any room in my house to be boring. And that most definitely includes the bathroom! Whether you’re a fan of a long, luxurious soak in the tub or a steamy shower, the bathroom is a sacred space: your very own spa. It’s a space for you to get away from it all and relax, let go, and… well, you know.
Artists themselves have been inspired by these quiet (or perhaps, not so quiet), contemplative or intimate moments, creating works that are interesting, colorful, and sometimes a little tongue-in-cheek to reflect this multifunctional space.
Below are some of my all-time favorite unique bathroom art pieces.

Bad Hair Day by Pete Edmunds
A humorous take on the common problem of those days where our hair just won’t behave. It’s fun to take a joke as far as one can – so what better than to see a hairdryer running out of control with dramatic effect!

Snake in the Bathroom by Lisa Ng
Big and colorful – this work packs a punch. This otherwise perfectly ordinary bathroom is inhabited by a large green serpent that has twisted its enormous body around the angular fixtures. It reminds me of my misspent youth and my old Nokia.

Fibre, back, plastic by Zena Blackwell
A quiet figurative composition, the intimacy of which seems almost at odds with its size. The stark, graphic quality of the birds in the foreground and the looming faucet seem in conflict with the plush pink towel, the smooth ceramic surface of the tub, and the soft curled-up figure of the girl, looking down. Ah, to be so blissfully unaware of the world.

Clean by Leo Wijnhoven
For the literal person in your life. The artist has taken the wholly unglamorous subject of the toilet turning it into something expressive and vibrant. Perfect for those after a little pop art in the bathroom without wanting to (or, sadly unable to!) commit to the full-scale work, this is also available as a fine art print.

Lost in reverie by Anastasia Korsakova
Surrounded by color in the tiles, the yellow curtain, and the gorgeous eggplant tub, the figure is both in focus and lost in a daze. Her face is both shrouded and alluded to by the magazine she clutches. A contemporary twist on the classical bathing nude – or my idea of a perfect evening. Light reading? Check. Cocktail? Yes, please. Equal parts aspirational and relatable.

Everyday good habit by Elo Wobig
Similar to the work by Wijnhoven, Wobig chooses to find beauty in the everyday. The painting is impressionistic, depicting common bathroom items – a toothbrush, toothpaste, and floss – with confident strokes. Yet, there is a warmth to the composition as if the picture is lit by early morning rays. In situ, it also serves as a good reminder to keep some of our better habits.

5a. Dimensión by Anibal Riverol
Capturing a moment between father and daughter, the work teeters on the edge of the figurative and the abstract. The multitude of colorful shapes, as if lingering shadows denoting the ghosts of prior movements, the work conveys both the intimacy of the moment and the busyness of the action.

Lavabo boys by Hortense Varillon
Digitally printed on glass, there is immense movement and vibrancy to the work. Depicting a series of figures tumbling and diving into the stark row of sinks and mirrors as if it was a playground, it brings a sense of joy – gaiety even – to the mundane.

Shared Bathroom by Sasha Neschastnova
Colorful and expressive, this work is a very modern take on the nude – and the idea of courtship! Perfect for those with a very ‘come as you are’ attitude or those who like to keep the door open.

The Bather – La Baigneuse by Éliane Ducros
This composition is calming, capturing this would-be bather in an almost dream-like state, surrounded by an aura of aqua blue. Sensual with a little bit of humor – in the form of a small rubber duck.
