Abstract Wall Art for Less!
Modern Abstract Wall Art
Wall Art is Pricey!
I think the majority of us like some kind of decoration or art on our walls. A popular choice is abstract wall art, some of which can be quite simple yet extremely complimentary to the decor of a room. Some can be complex and even messy but quite beautiful. I am quite a fan of this type of wall decorating.
Here's the part that I don't like when it comes to wall art; it can be very expensive! Having recently moved into a new apartment where it wasn't really acceptable to paint, the decoration I wanted on my walls was to be at least eye catching to take away from some of the blandness of white walls. I shopped around browsing whenever I saw some suitable pieces at department stores and little mall shops that specialized in home decor and I always found the same thing. They were always out of my price range which was pretty limited.
So here I was trying to come up with a way to make my walls nice too! There's no reason why I should have to have boring walls because my funds are limited. I needed an idea, I needed something interesting to hang on my wall and I wanted it fast as I was going on three months of bare walls. Boo hoo.
Aha! Why hadn't I thought of this before, silly me! Off I went to one of our local dollar stores and after spending only ten dollars I had all the materials I needed to create my own, if not better, abstract wall art! Yes, ten dollars!
I bought three colours of acrylic paint at one dollar each, a package of sponge brushes for one dollar, and three 16" x 12" artist white canvasses. My walls were going to look great!
A wonderful thing about abstract art is that it doesn't have to look any particular way. You don't have to be a great painter or even be that creative to do it. I searched around online to get some inspiration and voila! I had my idea. I used earth tones in each and placed them on my wall side by side above my sofa and nobody can tell that I did them myself. In fact, they look just like I bought them during my last trip to the mall ;)
The pictures presented in this hub are examples of some abstract art for sale online. As you can see this style can be quite captivating while maintaining complete originality.
I made note of different price ranges, while some canvas art was for sale for around thirty dollars others were priced in the hundreds. I suppose it depends on the artist and the store. Since this hub is trying to express how easy and cheap this could be to do it yourself, I felt that comparison of prices and stores wasn't necessary to list.
*A bonus that I realized while hanging my new art was that they are extremely light weight and terrificly easy to hang!
Another fine example of Abstract Wall Art.
