H3. Does the Style Looks More Expensive? the Effect of Visual Complexity on Luxury Perception of Art Infused Products

Experiments results demonstrate that consumers perceive products infused with complex visual arts are more luxury. This is because complex arts tend to capture consumers’ attention and broaden their pupil size, which in return, is explained by arousal of that stimuli. Stimuli’s artistic level is found to moderate the mechanism.
