Transform your space in no time at all
We all love that moment when we get to take our brand-new piece home for the first time and decide where we’re going to put it, but before you can sit back and admire your perfect print, painting or photograph, there’s the small matter of framing and hanging it! Whilst this part can be a breeze once you’ve had a little practice, for many of us the process can be a tad daunting. Maybe it’s your first art purchase or you’ve just moved and are in a hurry to make your new house a home, then take it from us, ready to hang works are the way to go.
With hundreds of framed works and ready to hang canvases available from our online marketplace, filling your walls with stunning contemporary art is easier and more affordable than ever, and since there’s no need to wait around for your work to get back from the framers, it’ll be delivered to your door and hanging on your wall before you know it! Here are a few of our faves…
Francesca Lupo, Ocean View
Looking for a fun gift for someone just moved into a new flat? We love Italian artist Francesca Lupo’s retro chic mixed-media collages. Taking inspiration from 1950’s and 60’s interior design, as well as her studies in architecture, Francesca celebrates the golden age of Hollywood, putting these stunning starlets and fashion icons front and centre – perfect for adding a touch of old-school glam to your space.
Frea Buckler, Plane 5
If you’re thinking of investing in your first piece, prints are an inexpensive way to start building your art collection, and now’s your chance to scoop up a piece by Frea Buckler, one of the Affordable Art Fair’s talented artists selected for the Royal Academy’s 250th Summer Exhibition this year. Perk up those bare walls and add a splash of colour with her one-of-a-kind, framed screeprint Plane 5 for just £360!
Iona Sanders, Tired Lillies
For us, 'Tired Lillies' strikes a calming, nostalgic tone. Through the falling petals of the bright, springtime flowers, there’s something quite special going on here, as the artist has paired the yellow petals with wonderfully moody greys, which combined with the transparent vase and black stalks, creates a simple yet powerful visual aesthetic.
Daniel Ablitt, Taking A Dip
Get lost in Daniel Ablitt’s wistful and sublime ‘Taking A Dip’. We just love how the background glows in an almost magical mist giving it a dream-like quality. Ready to be hung straight on your wall, this oil on board is no fuss and would make a stunning addition to any art collection.
Rod McIntosh, Insula
Integrating mindful yoga and meditation into his practice, Rod Mcintosh creates minimal abstract ink paintings that allow viewers a moment to pause, breathe and be present. De-stress your home and bring some positive energy to your walls with one of his calming, monochrome tondos.
David Body, Shoreline Trees
Fly with the birds and take in David Body’s cheerful 'Shoreline Trees', with its sunny blocks of oranges, pinks and blues, and pretty white houses. Perfect for coastal cottages, or anyone who hankers after the escape of the seaside in their home.
