Personalised wall art


We all know the feeling. You come back from that amazing holiday, or just had the best party EVER, or managed to capture your pet’s best portrait on your digital camera or iPhone. But then what? Most pictures these days don’t make it further then a Facebook post or a tweet. And after your phone stops allowing you to pick up calls because it is maxed out with data, the picture folder eventually needs to be emptied further limiting the life span of those pictures. It might be worth saving some and printing them on canvas or acrylic as wall art.

Create your own personalised wall art

Try going for a bit more quality then you get at your average copy shop or photo booth. A great site to check out is www.fotoviva.co.uk. I did a search online and they are one of very few that deliver worldwide. Plus they print on gallery quality canvas and acrylic, which makes the result look a lot better. They also have a pretty cool online gallery with stock images, both photographs and art, to choose from if your own pictures are not cutting it. Acrylics start at £60 and canvases start at £35.

Try mixing your own personalised wall art with existing images or prints you have, and frame those in different frames to create a unique collage. If you paint the wall in a contrasting colour, it’ll make the wall stand out!

Not all pictures and wall art need to be framed. The Ikea portrait of Audrey Hepburn in this example could be replaced with a canvas of your own pictures.

Instead of hanging the wall art on the wall, create ledges, to allow for regular changes to your collage. In this case, a black and white themed wall art collage creates a sleek and retro feel.

You’ll find that a wall with custom art will get the attention of both you, and your friends and family. You can even theme your wall according to the occasion or holidays.

Another example from the stock gallery at Fotoviva. This image would work great in both a modern, and retro interior. The colours even work in a classic style home. Especially when printed on high gloss acrylic!
