The word art conjures up in our minds a canvas painting of perhaps a landscape or seascape or maybe even a sunset painting. Some may associate art with portraits. As a matter of fact people almost always associate the word with painting. But then it could mean so many other things too. It could mean sketches, sculptures and much more. Wall art is of course unanimously considered to be one the most visually appealing varieties of art. Oil paintings or prints on a canvas medium have been the most popular form of wall art. Cunningly designed metal sculptures are now being used in many homes, corporate houses and other business establishments to add color, meaning and style to the walls.
At times you may be stumped for ideas when it comes to decorating a small area of your homes. In big cities many people live in small apartments and decorating the small and perhaps awkward areas could pose a big challenge. You may think there are no choices available and nothing could make those walls look any good. The most important factor here is that you must appreciate the fact that it is a small place and that even this place can be decorated. You cannot have a grand piano by the wall; you cannot have large bookcases and the furniture you choose to buy should be small enough to give enough space to walk about and not appear cluttered. What about walls then? Your solution lies in the nearest artwork gallery. Artwork galleries have a collection of wall art works that come in all sizes. It could be gigantic metal wall sculpture for the huge walls in corporate offices or small miniature paintings that could be just right for a small room with very less wall space.
A large painting would look awkward in a small wall. In fact there would not even be enough room to appreciate the wall art. So you have decided to buy a small wall art for your small room. You can choose abstract art, contemporary art or modern art, the theme of the painting really depending on your personal taste. The next thing that one should look into is where exactly should the painting be hung on the wall? Is the painting large enough to provide a good view from any part of the room? It should be. While small wall art is best suited for small rooms, they should also blend in with the wall. It should be so strategically placed so as to provide the viewer a complete and comprehensive view and the lighting should be just right to show it off.
