Yellow is arguably the most vibrant hue of the rainbow, and its vibrancy is taking over the internet. From desktop backgrounds to arts and fashion aesthetics, yellow is having a major moment right now.

But is there any way to use yellow as wallpaper on your devices? Let’s explore what different indie artists of the internet have done with bright and pastel yellows.

Just like with our Danish pastel wallpaper post, names of the artists are credited at the top of every art work along with contact for commissions.

Some of the artworks are in fact digital files sold as downloadables on Etsy. They are meant as wall art, you’re supposed to print them out. But since they are high-definition, they will look great as desktop backgrounds on very large screens.

Emotions & Moods We Get With Yellow

Yellow often sparks feelings of happiness, energy, optimism and creativity. It can bring up memories of carefree childhood days spent running around in the sunshine or lazy summer afternoons at the beach. Yellow can also be seen as a warning sign, as in traffic lights or caution tape. In some cases, it can even signify cowardice or betrayal—think about how Judas Iscariot was said to have worn a yellow robe when he betrayed Jesus Christ in the Bible.

Art Aesthetics & Gen Z Colors

When it comes to art aesthetics, yellow plays a large role in many movements such as Pop Art and Neo Expressionism.

Many Gen Z artists and fashion boutiques have also been incorporating bright shades of yellow into their work, which is why you may see so much of it around lately.

However, because yellow can be too overwhelming for some people’s eyes, for visual arts and device wallpapers you might prefer pastel shades of yellow that are more muted and friendlier on the eyes

These are often referred to as “Millennial Yellows” since pastel tones (mainly pink) were popularized by Millennials before becoming trendy among Gen Zers also, with the pastel Danish aesthetic.

Yellow is having a major moment right now—from desktop backgrounds to art aesthetics and everything in between!

While this bright hue often evokes feelings of happiness and energy, it can also be seen as a warning sign or even signify cowardice or betrayal depending on context.

If you want to incorporate this vibrant color into your life without going overboard, pastel yellows are an excellent option; these shades are more muted and friendly on the eyes than their brighter counterparts but still give you all of that sunny cheerfulness that we know and love from yellows!

No matter which shade you choose though, there’s no denying that this color trend isn’t going anywhere anytime soon!
