How to use "Monotone" in context?

Monotone is a new wave of digital art where the artist repeats the same color or pattern across an entire piece. The colors or patterns become so faded or muted that it creates a hypnotic or soothing effect.

Some of the first monotone pieces were created in the late 1800s by French artists like Paul Gauguin and Vincent van Gogh. They were inspired by the starkness of African sculpture and the infinite repetition of patterns in the natural world.

However, monotone art didn't really take off until the early 1990s.
