Art on call: 17 (free!) backgrounds for all those video chats

Suddenly find yourself a frequent flyer on one video chat app or another? We’ve got the good kind of background noise to beautify your next broadcast: 17 different free, downloadable, virtual backgrounds from 11 absurdly talented 20x200 artists. If you’ve already purchased a ring light or mastered the sartorial art of business on the top/party on the bottom, consider yourself an advanced caller. Or maybe you’re just getting the hang of remote meetings. Either way, these artist-created backgrounds will vamp up all those video calls. This is teleconferencing with an artistic touch.

These virtual backgrounds are optimized for Zoom, but you can use them anywhere they work. Set one as your desktop if you wanna! The point is to inject a little art into your new normal, and hopefully provide some ambiance-altering, mood-improving effects in the meantime—for you and anyone watching. Nothing spreads cheer like a giant cheeseburger, a change of scenery, or some encouraging words in cool lettering. Check out all our artist-made backgrounds below, click, download and do your thing. It’s art for everywhere!

With art for everyone,
Team 20x200
