So, when I first looked at it my reaction was "mosaic" was the root of the style and so I did a little digging and came across the concept of "doodle mosaic" that really seems to fit. The other reason that worked for me its the there is a Zen Doodle feel as well, the sense that the sum of the parts are creating a bigger result.

This is a relatively new trend in graphical design which is known as low poly design or low polygon design. If you google "low poly design" you'll find plenty of tutorials on how to produce such pictures by yourself (e.g. this one). In (very) short, you take a picture, triangulate it and generates the polygons out of your the induced mesh. Clearly, ...

A company that makes them, Lindy Bop, calls them their "Ophelia" style dress and they have a similar one that's called "Sloane". It's a vintage style from the 50s - "Rockabilly swing". The description of the bodice they use in various places include: Sweetheart neckline with ruched satin inset a sweetheart neckline with turquoise ruched bust panel....

I would think that this is high contrast art. The variance of dark and light colours is very high in that picture. While this does not fit all the styles linked it fits enough of them. This is like what you see in the classic Che Guevara graphic. This effect is not limited to just black and white but excels in using minimal colours.

The technique seems to be woodblock printing. You can tell by the linearity of the drawing, the lack of large dark areas, and the wavy structure of the lines. Especially the second picture shows the underlying wood nerves, as adjacent lines have the same slight deviation. Not very oriental sounding, I know. The Japanese term for woodblock printing is ...

I agree, "Clip Art" or "Graphic Arts" would seem an appropriate answer. Also, they might be described as "icons" or "avatars" in another usage. Again, the answer to this question is perhaps largely a factor of where the clips are used, what they are being used for and how they are included. There is a lovely "...

If you're referring to the technique, that's Stippling or Pointillism if made in color. Images created in this style are composed of numerous dots that form a picture if viewed from afar. Stippling is the creation of a pattern simulating varying degrees of solidity or shading by using small dots rebusB helpfully pointed out that it seems to be a picture ...

These are very similar to notan drawings. Artists use notan drawings to quickly determine whether or not their finished painting will have an interesting pattern of dark and light values. It is a valuable tool for establishing an interesting composition in a painting. Arthur Wesley Dow wrote about notan in the 19th century. His book is out of copyright ...

The subject matter has a dreamlike hybridity, as it always seems to conflate two visually or associatively related but causally illogical or impossible, unlikely, and mostly absurd, objects. In that sense it can be described as dream art or surrealism, although both are quite broad terms. The cartoon-like art style directly reminds me of that of the animated ...

That is a Landscape Illustration, member of the Illustration family in Arts. You can get more information on the related wiki page, although not all members are listed there (it's a big family): https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Illustration If you're looking for an "art style" wording, to describe it for example on a resume or on a commission service ...

The style of 20s-30s cartoons is called Inkblot (see http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/InkblotCartoonStyle for more details), maybe this could help in your research. The two images you posted have both an Inkblot feel, but they are more "graphical", in a sense of being more graphic illustrations. Probably they're also both vector illustrations, ...

The style could be named after its instigating minimalistic 'Flat design', or is simply called 'flat illustration', but it could also very well be there's no (official) terminology for this specific form of graphic design (yet). 'Flat design' has become very popular in the last 7 years or so. I think a major influence on this style becoming more common was ...

The style is indeed usually referred to as 'low-poly', but to nuance the accepted answer a little, 'low poly design' refers to a specific type of 3D modeling in which it is the expressive goal of the modeler/artist to create models with a low polygon count (i.e. with as few possible triangular faces). It became more popular ever since more possibilities for ...

Interesting question. As Wiljago has commented De Chirico is a good fit however I'll add that what unites the examples you've given are not stylistic (formal) similarities but atmospheric. Your examples do mainly feature the flat clean (low poly)geometric forms or surfaces you favour but other factors are far more emotionally evocative. Open, empty public ...

What you're talking about isn't just one style or school, but it sounds like you may like works coming from: scuola metafisica, surrealism, American modernism, American realism, expressionism, and symbolism. Now, as I said, the characteristics you described don't define any school of fine art in particular, so within those schools there will be works that ...

Neither 'landscape illustration' nor 'pen-and-ink illustration', as mentioned in the accepted answer, are styles: one is the genre, the second the medium. Having found a high-resolution version of the original picture in your question, it's more obvious the label shows the typical line-and-dot style of etchings or similar engravings: Hence, technically, it'...

Using the glossary of art movements, schools, and styles compiled by Joelle Steele (http://www.joellesteele.com/artmovements.html), perhaps the best fit would be folk art, or "naïve art" or "outsider art." Folk Art. Art created by people who lack formal training, but follow an established tradition of craftsmanship and style, often regional in ...

Wouldn't say this is really a specific art type but "Naïve figurative marker drawing" or "cartoon style marker art" come to mind.

I would classify these as surrealist graphic icons, maybe? There are definitely simplified elements of surrealism here. If you find this style interesting though, and your goal is to immerse yourself in similar images, try your hand at these searches: Simple iconography, Simple surrealism, Line art illustrations, Vintage illustrations, Vintage surrealism,...

This is partially opinion-based, obviously, but there are some reasons I can think of: Expression. Even though this is seemingly a very broad (but by far the major) justification, the point is that the range of the colour palette naturally conveys a different meaning. Morandi's work, for example, emphasizes composition and division of the flat surface ...

The artist, Debbie Criswell, calls it Primitive Folk Art.

Building on Richardson's answer, a search of 'gothic landscape folk art' yields similar results for me! And I think this effect could be achieved with both oil and acrylic paint on either canvas, paper or if you like, wood.

As for the techniques for this painting, it seems more like oil than watercolor. If you wish to paint this way it appears they use a large square brush and a smaller pointed one. There is not much mixing of colors or blending. They appear to take a single color and place it solidly on the canvas. Except for in the moon and foliage, where they use a large ...

Here is a link showing different styles of posters. To me, it looks like a constructionist poster or a post-modern poster since it seems to be of mixed styles. It could just simply be a mixed-media graphic too.

Matt correctly identifies the style as High Contrast Art. But following the tag technique-identification - The technique frequently used to create this kind of art is Linocut.

Your style also has a scratch art quality, where you take a light colored ground, cover it evenly with india ink, then scratch away your design.
