Much needed personality is easily injected into a room via the blank gallery walls of our homes. You needn’t be an aficionado to choose and appreciate a great print or original piece – the key is, do you like it and can you live with it?
As you may have read in one of Duckprint’s previous Your Space posts, anyone – including your four year-old son – can be an artist worthy of a wall. But if artistic ability (or inclination) is one of those things that just passed you by, you have a veritable WORLD of artists to feature in your very own, personally-curated bedroom gallery.
Here are some of Duckprint’s favourites but there are infinitely more online, in every price bracket – just have a look!
Nancy Ramirez is a traditional medium and digital artist, combining pretty fragments of colorful abstract paintings or elements of existing photographs to create new and surprising pieces for all to enjoy.
>Ramirez has a particular affinity with interior design and relishes creating artwork that is accessible and affordable – making any of her works, including this colourful, yet geometric, Wild Herringbone, a valuable addition to your artistic collection.
Cost of materials under $100
Inspired by Nancy Ramirez’s work? Laura from The Embellishment Nest was – through the magic of Pinterest – and went about creating her own take on Wild Herringbone.
All you need to create a similar design is a canvas, some painters tape, acrylic paints and some creativity. To be honest, the success of a design like this really doesn’t hinge on whether you can draw or hold a paintbrush with correct technique – it relies on randomness and bright, beautiful colours of your choice.
If you’ve longed for a DIY art project you could hang in your home and just haven’t wanted to take a huge leap into art classes or failed attempts, this is a great intro into the wonderful world of art!
From $23 upwards
