A short history and evolution of large wall art
But did you know that Cave wall paintings are the oldest known form of wall art?
But you can bet that over time, wall art evolved to include new materials and techniques.
For example, the ancient Egyptians used hieroglyphics to decorate the walls of their temples and tombs.
The ancient Greeks and Romans used mosaics to create elaborate murals in their homes and public buildings.
During the Renaissance, artists began to explore new subjects and styles.
They painted portraits, landscapes, and religious scenes in a realistic style.
The Baroque era brought with it a new emphasis on drama and movement in wall art. Artists used large-scale murals and paintings to create the illusion of space and depth.
In the 18th and 19th centuries, large wall art became more diverse and eclectic.
Today, wall art is an important part of interior design. It can be used to add personality and style to any room in the home.
Wall art can also be used to create a focal point in a room or to divide a space into different areas.
Large format silk fabric canvas wall art
Wallpaper Kenya’s method of large wall art is on silk fabric canvas.
It is a type of wall art that is printed on canvas fabric and then lined on an adhesive-pasted wall.
It is a popular choice for wall art because it is relatively affordable, durable, and can be printed in a wide variety of colors and designs.
Advances in large-format canvas wall art include:
- New large-format printing technologies produce sharper, more vibrant images.
- The use of new materials, such as metallic inks and silk fabric, to create unique and eye-catching effects.
- The development of new printing techniques, such as hand-embellished canvas prints, gives the art a more personal and handcrafted touch.
In addition, canvas wall art is now available in a wider range of sizes and styles than ever before.
This makes it easier to find the perfect piece of canvas art to complement any décor.
Take advantage of these most recent advances in canvas wall art:
- You can customize canvas prints with your own photos or artwork.
- And you can frame them in unique and stylish ways.
- You can also have canvas prints designed to be hung as a set, creating a larger and more impactful display.
- Canvas prints that are made from sustainable, high-tensile silk fabric materials.
Canvas wall art is a versatile and affordable way to add personality and style to your home décor.
Thanks to the recent advances in the field, you now have more choices than ever before.
Advantages of large wall art
Large wall art that expands the space can work wonders for you.
And can radically change the visual perception of volumes and allow you to adjust the parameters of the walls and ceiling.
Let us make a list to evaluate the pros and cons of large wall art.
I want to give you 5 reasons to make a decorative painting on the wall, instead of placing paper or vinyl.
Many times we think of a solution to dress our walls or give that personal touch, a beautiful wallpaper or vinyl that is so fashionable.
This is fine, it is a good option, the only thing that before launching into the search or installation of these, keep certain issues in mind.
1st Advantage. There are no joints
The silk fabric raw material we use for full wall artwork comes in sizes 3 meters by 70 meters.
And therefore you only need one piece as long as your wall is of standard size which is less than 3 meters.
It is the complete piece, there are no cuts. In paper, no matter how well you place it, there will always be joints.
Over time these joints are likely to lift in some areas, or in the case of vinyl, to peel off.
2nd Advantage. The design and composition
In a large wall art on silk fabric, the elements or details that make it up are designed for your specific space.
That is, it is likely that you want one area to be loaded with more details.
And that another area is left clearer because you are interested in something, perhaps placing a piece of furniture in front of a lamp…
The position of the drawings and the structure are designed for your specific space. It’s art, has movement, and fits with the rest of the objects.
On paper, the rapport of repetition or the details of it, touch where they touch.
3rd Advantage. Digitally printed wall art is forever
It will be there for a lifetime unless you get tired or a major accident occurs.
You will always have it in perfect condition. It will pass from generation to generation.
In the case of paper or vinyl, let’s say that it will last a few years.
And if we leave it for a few more years, it will be in irregular condition.
4th Advantage. A work of wall art is exclusive
There is no other like it. As I said when thinking about each space, for each personality there cannot be two alike.
Details, composition, and design have a reason and it is a pleasure to discover that particularity that is part of that work.
The difference is in the details.
5th Advantage. Artistic connotation
Not the least important. Digital lartge wall painting, a Trompe l’oeil, or trompe-l’oeil has anartistic connotation that the other option lacks.
Seeing a direct brushstroke on the wall is magical, it has nothing to do with it, it’s Art.
What kind of wall art visually enlarges space?
The main thing is to fit it correctly into the room.
- 3D effect. The illusion of maximum volume and presence. Landscapes and abstractions, geometric figures floating in the air, imitation stucco. 3D photo wallpapers that expand the space are suitable for any room from the bedroom to the bathroom.
- City panoramas, bird’s eye views. Highways, skyscrapers, endless lights – these scenes are a reflection of our city life. Suitable for the modern interiors of those people who can no longer imagine their lives without the urban bustle and, on the contrary, only dream of moving to a big city.
- Nature. Dense forest and endless fields, waterfalls, mountain peaks, and sea horizons. Even if such wallpaper does not decorate the wall entirely, but only partially, the expanding effect of them will be very noticeable.
Full wall art that expands space is a modern interior solution for you who want to make your space not only beautiful but also as harmonious and proportional as possible.
Wallpaper Kenya is pleased to offer you a large catalog of wall artworks in which you will definitely find your own three-dimensional story.
Full 3D wall art in small rooms
3D full wall art for small rooms can be a real salvation and a lifesaver. Experienced interior designers often use this technique.
Because three-dimensional art on the walls can visually compensate for the lack of space and give the space more harmonious proportions.
Our perception is influenced by absolutely everything – the surface topography, the plot, and the prevailing color scheme.
When choosing artwork for small rooms, you need to consider the following points:
- Dark shades visually steal precious square meters and make the room more intimate. And so choose light shades, to fill your space with light and air;
- The geometry of the pattern is of great importance. Horizontal volumetric plots can make your room look wider, while vertical ones visually raise the ceiling;
- The smooth, slightly glossy surface of the canvas reflects light better, which means the plot of such wall art looks more voluminous;
- If you decide to use photo artwork in the interior to expand the space, please note that the floor and ceiling should be made in the most neutral, monochromatic shades.
Important point! To ensure that the wall on which you have the mural that expands the space does not lose its illusion effect, you should not block it with massive furniture (cabinets, shelving), furniture with active colors, and decor.
It is also recommended not to get carried away by the shelves, photographs, and paintings on this wall.
In which rooms can you use 3D full wall art to increase space
Before we talk about 3D full wall art in rooms with a specific purpose, let’s pay attention to the areas in which the three-dimensional picture will be placed.
Due to the fact that 3D wall art is a fairly active method of decorative finishing, it should be used in moderation in the interior.
As a rule, in one room, one or a maximum of two adjacent walls are decorated with large wall art.
Too large an area with a plot can create an effect that is not expanding, but rather piling up.
With one or two accent walls, the others should be done in neutral, inactive colors and finishes.
A rather interesting effect can be achieved if you paint a wall with a perspective with a door, thereby masking it.
A rectangular door leaf will harmoniously merge with the wall, enhance the effect of presence and visually expand the wall.
The living room
You will not be mistaken if you say that the living room is the most suitable room for bold, creative large wall art.
In most modern layouts, the living room is allocated the largest area. Because this is the place where you and your family spend leisure time, large and small companies, and guests gather.
With bright colors, and a wide variety of subjects, you can decorate not one, but two walls with a pattern.
There are practically no restrictions in this space. Full wall art that expands the space in the living room interior can be hung in the TV area, placing emphasis on it.
If you don’t want the theme 3D art to be constantly in your area of attention, you can paste it behind the sofa.
Sometimes in the living room, you can find a working “office” area or a dining room.
In these cases, full wall art performs not only a decorative function but also a zoning one.
Large wall art for the kitchen, expanding the space, will be a good finishing option. The smaller the kitchen, the lighter the color scheme of the room should be, including the theme of the artwork.
A beautiful panel depicting landscapes, terraces, and cafes will fit perfectly into the dining space.
Wall art can also decorate the work area or apron area. In this case, the artwork or painting is sealed with epoxy to protect it from dirt. And to be able to wash this wall at any moment.
The bedroom is a place of relaxation and rest. The central object that attracts attention in this room, of course, is the bed.
It can also occupy a large area of space, making it less free. In this case, wall art that expands the space in the bedroom will allow you to visually adjust the proportions of the room. And make the space more harmonious and spacious.
You can decorate the wall at the head of the bed or opposite it with an interesting artwork.
This technique will allow you to enjoy the image, take your mind off the hustle and bustle, and plunge into the mysterious world of dreams.
For the bedroom, a calm color scheme without bright active details is best suited – beige, cream, and pastel colors.
Don’t forget that the environment in the bedroom should above all be soothing.
Full wall art for children’s rooms is becoming increasingly popular. Large hand-painted paintings are created on the most interesting themes for children.
There are also ready-made artworks, often drawn by talented artists, on various topics for children.
