In 19th-century England, artists who painted realistic scenes on sidewalks were called “screevers.” Over the next centuries, their numbers increased.
Artists have always strived for a believable representation of nature and surrounding things.
In our modern age, this can be easily achieved with the help of advanced devices. However, there is something fascinating and especially attractive about many 3D images created by the human hand.
After all, the 3D drawing technique requires a lot of skill and patience, not to mention talent.
We invite you to admire the creations of various masters, whose works are made in a realistic 3D genre. This is then converted into digital form and then applied to wallpaper.
You just have to have a little taste and a lot of love for art.
But what exactly is 3D wall art? 3D wall art means mural with three-dimensional images.
That is images with perceivable width, height, and depth (length).
While some people view digital wall art wallpaper negatively, we think it is very useful. And has brought access to otherwise unaffordable wall art to all.
Although talking about 3D wall art wallpaper kind of brings into mind painting kind of murals, all wallpaper is art.
Please note my choice of words, perceivable images, and not actual objects.
The vast majority of walls on which the 3D image is printed are 2D. Meaning that they have two dimensions. Namely width and height.
And the wallpaper on which the art is applied doesn’t have the third dimension depth. Therefore the third dimension of the images on these wallpapers is an optical illusion.
The difference between 2D and 3D wall art?
3D wall art wallpaper is first sketched on a 2D surface using a set of art guidelines.
Our brain follows a set of guidelines when it interprets the signals sent by our eyes. Therefore, objects that are further away appear smaller, and those closer to us appear larger.
3D artists play tricks on our brains by drawing objects that are visible further at a distance and less visible up close.
3D wall art is a combination of science and fine art. Artists sometimes use a grid to visually stretch the image of objects, creating the stretched appearance necessary to achieve illusory deception.
Alternative methods involve using a projector aimed at the height and distance of the viewer, and then the outline of the spilled light image is traced to the camera to recreate the image on the wall.
For the sake of clarity here are the main differences between 2D and 3D wall artworks:
- A two-dimensional art image uses only two axes, the x-axis, and the y-axis. But a three-dimensional image uses three axes, the x-axis, y-axis, and z-axis respectively.
- A two-dimensional image appears to have only two surfaces; length and breadth. While a three-dimensional image appears to have three surfaces; length, breadth, and height.
- Two-dimensional wallpaper is also referred to as “plane” figures or “flat” figures due to their appearance. Three-dimensional figures are only referred to as 3D figures.
- Examples of two-dimensional wallpaper artworks are circles, squares, rectangles, and pentagons. Examples of three-dimensional wallpaper are Prism, cuboids, pyramids, and cylinders.
Judge for yourself:
3D wall wallpaper is a conceptual art
The idea underlies all works of art as well as wallpaper. Mastering 3D wall art is far from easy.
But these incredible examples show what’s possible if you’re willing to put in the hours and effort. Working in 3D adds extra depth and realism to an image that can be very difficult to achieve in 2D.
If you’re on a long journey to develop your skills, take a look at these works to inspire and guide you. We also spoke with the artists to hear a little more about their workflow and design process.
The artists behind these images use a range of different tools – check out our guide to the best 3D modeling software to find out what each one does (there are a range of free tools here, ideal if you’re just starting out
Leonardo captured the wife of a Florentine merchant in Gioconda, Aphrodite herself is depicted in the image of Venus, and a predatory print Wild Fashion – modern fashion for the wild urban jungle in the metropolis.
This is a reference to the feminine, feline grace, and wild passion.
Contemplating the mysterious smile created by Leonardo’s brush, Aphrodite carved from white marble is a pleasure, as is looking at the exotic prestige color pattern.
And you will find pleasure in the instant transformation of your room from blank to visually stunning walls.
Texture and Effects
In an old painting, a network of cracks is noticeable – craquelure or texture.
Polished marble of antique statues glistens – and the wallpaper sparkles with smooth tints of light from silver to gold and deep embossed relief.
This is where the works of art are stored. Aphrodite and Mona Lisa can be seen in the Louvre, and the wallpaper can be seen in the Wallpaper Museum in Kassel, Germany.

3D photo wall art wallpaper
If you consider photography as an art, then you will find millions of 3D wall art wallpaper at Wallpaper Kenya. For a unique wallpaper, you can take your photos and we use them. If you decide to take this route, a few tips might come in handy.
Try to capture the texture of your subject to elevate the subject material from something banal and easy to discard to something more than it appears at first glance.
A good understanding of lighting is key to being able to control the texture of an object in a photograph.
By choosing the right shooting point, the right angle, and setting a competent lighting scheme, you will save yourself many hours of post-processing.
But you also have the option of getting a 3d photo from Wallpaper Kenya, for free. And all you need to do is to give us your desired theme. For example, a forest path, wildlife, waterfall, or any other theme.
If you choose to get the artwork for your wall art from Wallpaper Kenya, we have hundreds of millions for you to choose from. And you are not limited to photographs only. You can get fine art as well.
3D abstract wallpaper mural
Click on the link for abstract 3D wall art. You copy every detail extremely exquisitely and subtly, just like the brush strokes and even textures in the image.
As long as you have a painting image in high resolution, the details of the painting will be presented to you perfectly.
Whether it is concave and convex strokes or traces of the stain.
Abstract wall art is a modern style that is opposed to realism and photo murals.
And therefore it is necessary to use imagination and understanding beyond what logic gives us to admire a mural of abstract work.
Within the visual arts, abstract art is best known for its expressions in the field of plastic arts (painting, and sculpture).
But other aspects of art have also developed abstractionist tendencies. These include such as architecture, performing arts (dance, music), and literature.
In this sense, abstract wall art is distinguished by transcending the representation of the external appearance of things.
And by proposing plastic searches that point rather toward formal, chromatic, and structural aspects.
Hence, abstraction uses the most essential resources of plastic language to try to create an autonomous language that evokes its meanings.
However, the degree of abstraction works can vary and range from a level of partial abstraction, where figurative features are still evident, to total and absolute abstraction.
Does 3D wall art give more creative space?
Even with all the advantages of 3D wall art, it is a myth that it gives more creative space to the artist.
In practice, the situation is exactly the opposite. Classic 2D graphics give many times more freedom for the artist.
Think of the classic Disney children’s cartoons, or at least Tom and Jerry.
Characters can stretch their limbs unnaturally, their eyes pop out of their sockets, their jaws drop to the floor, and so on.
The author can do whatever he pleases with the facial expressions and motor skills of the characters. And it will look funny.
2D graphics are mainly used to create illustrations, infographics, and animations.
It is more stylistically diverse and gives the artist room for creativity precisely because it does not strive for realism.
In 3D graphics, the picture almost always strives for realism. The typical antics of Tom and Jerry in 3D will look at least inappropriate, if not intimidating.
Therefore, no matter how 3D technologies develop, classic animation will not go anywhere for a long time. She has her unique film language and charm.
Mixing 2D and 3D art on one wall will be the main trend in the coming years. In the West, the trend towards 2.5D was manifested after the premiere of the movie “Spider-Man: Into the Universe”:
Is 3D art more expensive than 2D?
At Wallpaper Kenya it will cost you the same for a 3d wall art as a 2d one. Because the technique of production is the same.
There is a prejudice that 2D murals are for those with a smaller budget. However, the cost of a product created using art depends on the skill of the artist, style, detail, and timing (if it is animation).
Flat graphics can be cheaper than 3D graphics if you are talking about illustrations or small animations for a website. But large murals with an unusual concept, where detailed drawing is required, in 2D graphics can cost no less than in 3D.
Lighting, perspective, and other effects in 2D graphics have to be drawn by hand, which requires the artist to have more in-depth knowledge. Now Adobe After Effects or, for example, Toon Boom Harmony programs are used for this. 2D illustrations are created in Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator, or Procreate.
In 3D, such effects are created using programs such as 3Ds Max or Unreal Engine. It is enough to set the light sources and set the perspective in the settings. Animating some scenes, and making environments or extras is also cheaper in 3D.
Different styles of 3D wall art with wallpaper
You don’t necessarily have to decorate with a full wall mural or 3D wall art if you don’t have the budget. Wall art designs and wall decoration ideas are simply your personal choice designs.
Modern paintings in 3D or 2D designs in abstract models, patterns, shapes, designer figures in various colors, or some really amazing idea that is your own creation.
Creative designs that can decorate your living room walls, bedroom walls, hallway designs, or the entrance area just above the door. We make designs according to your requirements, your choice, and the color theme you suggest.
The designs in your living room reflect your lifestyle and your taste for art, culture, and traditions.
Mural art, mural wall design, wall sculptures, decorative wall designs, and themes, Walls are always the first love of any artist, whether in Kenya or outside.
But bear in mind that our minimum order quantity for custom-made wall art is 3 meters by 1 meter.
And from that piece, you are at liberty to create any kind of art you have in mind. For instance, you can get 6 pieces of art one meter by one meter which you can have framed.
And it is that if you want something more than flat paint for your walls, the reliefs and 3-dimensional effects provide both attractiveness and a point of sophistication.
And at a decorative level, they completely fill the wall, becoming the focus of the room. This, allows you to do without additional accessories like mirrors or pictures.
These create a 3D effect, especially when you move away, achieving a rather impressive sensation of volume. Ideal above all for premises, precisely because of the need to have a large space to capture its volume while moving away from it.
In any case, the truth is that the variety of 3D wallpapers is immense. From papers with an origami effect to some that incorporate textures such as suede or animal skin, with fur that makes passing your hand through them an experience.
