Oversized art is in—from pop to abstract, be bold an think big
An oversized art print commands your attention. Have you got a beautiful mantle you want to show off? A fabulous mid-century modern sofa you want people to look at? Or perhaps you want to separate your dining area in your open-plan living room? Try a patterned print; not only will it draw people’s focus, but it will make your room feel more cosy, happy and homely. Try a print by Hormazd Narielwalla – a modern master of pattern.
Garrido's delicate balance of nature-based shapes and rhythms, overlayed and transformed, create stunning artworks that look great as oversized prints.
A framed print looks stunning hanging on the wall, but if it starts to overpower the visual look of the space, try something different. Rest it on the floor, leaning up against the wall or place it on a low shelf or bench.

A colourful artwork makes a beautiful statement on your wall and if you keep the rest of the room minimalistic you’ve got even more space to play with pops of colour. Try a large scale Basquiat with urban flavour, or a colourful Rothko printed true to its original size, for a contemporary look with timeless appeal. Just remember to keep your space minimal and let the artwork do the talking.
A large art print shouts ‘look at me’ the minute you walk into a room, so if you’re feeling shy, opt for an iconic artist to add instant familiarity to your statement wall. Try a Warhol piece for a wall that positively pops, or a Picasso to add vibrancy to a minimal space.

Don’t be afraid to work oversized prints into small spaces – a painting with depth can add a sense of space and really open up a small interior. Try a beautiful abstract landscape by Liz Jameson or Kathy Ramsay Carr to whisk you away to another world.
