Abstract Canvas Wall Art

Abstract Canvas Wall Art

Have you ever looked at a cool piece of artwork and thought to yourself, “I have to have that”? Or "Can I pull that look off in my home"? When it comes to abstract art, it's really as easy as declaring the look you are going for, choosing your favorite piece, choosing location to hang it, and viola! Done! It easily incorporates into many different decor themes and be the final element to add a hint of eclectic, and even modern, charm to your space.

Abstract art can express an endless variety of moods, fading softly into the background or taking charge of a room with bold color and form. Whether your style is modern, rustic, eclectic, traditional, or somewhere in between, there’s always a way to incorporate abstract art into your decor.

They tend to be the perfect choice when a room calls for an oversized, colorful statement piece. The subject matter is typically open-ended which  won’t dominate a room’s narrative, while the eye-catching composition (whether its geometric or fluid) helps to create movement and depth in your space. If you need something more muted so as not to overpower your other decor, a black-and-white statement piece will almost certainly do the trick.

Fun Tip: Give it a companion. Whether stacked vertically, hung side by side, or displayed flanking a piece of furniture or doorway, a pair of abstract canvas wall art works will give your room an intentional and balanced feel. The key here is to keep the framing and sizes consistent, so that they are displayed as a cohesive set, even if the colors and  compositions vary.

Another thing to keep in mind is that your wall doesn’t always have to scream for attention. Sometimes your room calls for something more subtle. And that's OK. Just stick to colors that already exist in your space. You might choose an abstract piece of art where the main color matches your walls, or your sofa. This way, the overall look of the artwork will ensure that your decor ends up feeling modern rather than overdone or too eclectic.

This type of artwork plays nicely with other genres, especially when it comes to your gallery wall! From traditional landscapes to portraits and figurative prints, it is so easy to incorporate them into a new or existing gallery wall. A few things to keep in mind to help you along the way - Stick to a limited color palette for a more cohesive look. You could opt for art that uses all cool tones, or black and white, for example. Keep your frame colors and materials similar. Again, keeps your gallery cohesive. But you can incorporate a mix of sizes and mediums for added interest. In terms of placement, gallery walls can be incorporated on large and small spaces alike. They are perfect for filling in a large blank wall as well as making a small space like a powder room feel special. With this, you would simply choose the size accordingly.

So go ahead, choose your favorite piece!
