If you’re eager to get started building a gallery wall with different art pieces, consider choosing a selection of abstract art in different sizes, textures and colors. Gallery walls can be either eclectic or unified, and there are points in the middle of the spectrum, too, that allow you to blend a variety of different art pieces around a unifying theme. To strike the right balance, you can decide on a specific quality that each piece will have. For abstract art, color and shape are often the simplest elements to focus on and carry through each piece you choose. No matter what ends up characterizing the art you choose, gallery walls look great when they include a variety of pieces in different sizes displayed in a balanced arrangement.
Too add some textural variety to your gallery wall, consider adding a wall sculpture or some other kind of dimensional art piece to the arrangement. We offer both figurative and abstract dimensional art options that allow you to add variety to any wall in your house. Many of our abstract dimensional art pieces look fantastic on their own, too, allowing you to create a statement wall over a mantelpiece or at some other design focal point. From monochromatic metal wall sculptures to two-tone geometric panels made from upcycled wood, you can choose to display our dimensional abstract art in small groups for a more dramatic impact.
Whether you choose a collection of abstract prints or curate a mixed collection of figurative and non-representational pieces, our collection of art pieces is sure to contain several options that appeal to your taste. Dress your walls up with style and give your living space an extra boost of enjoyment.
