Most Popular Casino and Gambling-Themed Art Pieces

Gambling and casinos, in general, are not only great sources of fun and entertainment, but they’ve always been quite a popular source of inspiration for many artists. With such a strong community, a plethora of useful resource sites, such Gamble USA, and endless options for entertainment, it’s no wonder that so many different artists found gambling to be so inspiring.

That’s precisely why we nowadays have a wide variety of movies and songs featuring this motif. Aside from them, there are numerous painted art pieces that also feature gambling and casino games. What’s more, cards, dice and other gambling symbols are quite popular options when it comes to tattoos. So, let’s take a look at some of the most popular casino and gambling inspired pieces of art.

Cassius Marcellus Coolidge – Dogs Playing Poker
We simply can’t be talking about art pieces that feature casino games without mentioning arguably the most famous paintings of them all – Dogs Playing Poker by Cassius Marcellus Coolidge. As a matter of fact, Coolidge was so inspired by this concept that he made 8 different variations of the same painting. Even though this piece of art dates all the way back to 1894, it’s still extremely popular to this day.

Edvard Munch – At the Roulette Table
Created back in 1892 by the famous Edvard Munch, this art piece depicts a group of gamblers gathered around a roulette table. While some of them are actively participating in the game, others are simply watching as the events unfold. Although just a painting, the atmosphere depicted in this work of art is almost palpable which only goes to show just how skillful the artist truly was.

Casino and gambling-inspired tattoos
Aside from the aforementioned paintings, casino and gambling-inspired motifs are also a huge hit in the tattoo industry. Even though it’s rather impossible to single out any tattoos in particular, some of the most popular symbols include dice, the Ace of spades and playing cards. What’s particularly interesting to note is that similar tattoos are oftentimes requested even by people who don’t really gamble or visit casinos. And this is probably because all of these popular motifs can be interpreted in many different ways.

Needless to say, these were just some of the examples of the most popular art pieces containing some of the strongest casino and gambling motifs. Naturally, since the industry is so inspiring, it’s safe to assume that it will only continue to inspire artists across the world in the future.
