One of the most debated issues about color is whether black is truly a color or not. To an artist (or a child) black is a color and white is not. But for a scientist, white is a color, black is not. The real meaning of the word black means the absence of colors. Try to mix all the colors in the rainbow, you’ll get black. Black has many associations. Black goes beyond a simple or mixed color; It can be seen as the color of solitude and misery, but it can also express a sense of creativity, power, elegance, strength, nobility, and beauty.
In digital arts, black is usually the preferred color because of its effectiveness in producing contrast. Black and yellow or red on black creates a powerful color combination. Almost all colors appears more luminous against a black background. Below I put together a collection of beautiful black wallpapers that truly illustrate the beauty of black-inspired design. Go ahead, try some black wallpapers on your desktop or laptop. Take your pick and enjoy!
