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 kind of shading with many thin lines is called hatching. (image source) It's very common in ink or pen drawings and printing techniques like etching or woodblock printing. A sub-category of prints with especially fine details is the "old master print". This site demonstrates a number of different hatching techniques and how they influence our ...

A possible term is 'counterchange pattern': "Patterning in which a dark motif on a light ground alternates with the same motif [in] light on a dark ground." (lexico.com) Examples: source source The Frisian artist M.C. Escher famously made extensive use of this type of pattern, inventing a lot of new ones. Take a look at his work Metamorphosis ...

Propaganda 'style' Below some specifics can be found. Without more input it is hard to pinpoint what exactly attracts you in the image, so I've made a quick analysis. Characteristic features are: emphasized and clean outlines; (comic art) realism; arched shading; a colour palette limited to five colours (or slightly differentiated hues of two colours), ...

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 "...

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 ...

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 in the image in your post is based on the Soviet Constructivist style of poster art. Yes, these designs were primarily made for propaganda purposes but there are many styles of art that have been used in propaganda. The severe angles, use of large block print, saturated colors and boarders, the proletariat as hero, etc. are all specific to ...

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, ...

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 ...

The other answer provided some good details, but I don’t believe it was what you were looking for. The art style name that consists of big body parts and a small head which has been trending for the last few years is called “Alegria”.

It's hard to pinpoint, because it's neither a genre nor a style, but it reminds me of horror vacui, i.e. 'fear of empty space' (think vacuum horror), a type of design that gained special popularity during the Baroque period, when elaborate shapes and intricate decorations ideally adorned every last piece of surface in art and architecture. Searching for the ...

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.

It's a form of hierarchical proportion: Hierarchical proportion is a technique used in art, mostly in sculpture and painting, in which the artist uses unnatural proportion or scale to depict the relative importance of the figures in the artwork. source Larger figures in these images play a larger role within the context, have a higher value or authority, ...

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 ...

Black and white is the colour scheme of your drawing - it is never a style. The medium is ink on paper, if digitally cleaned up and printed it can be described as a print (and you might want to consider working in (limited) editions). The technique, depending on your drawing method, seems to be free drawing, akin to free writing (and in that case an ...

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 ...

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