Prints & Canvas


A beautiful piece of wall art can liven up the dreariest room, and this form of decorative art makes a statement about the personality and style of the person who inhabits that space.


Quality artwork found in both print and canvas mediums, but the medium you choose is determined by budget and desired effect of the image on your home decor. Before you start shopping for a piece of fine art to adorn the walls of your home, read on to learn more about the options you'll find on these two art mediums.




Art prints are images produced on poster paper that retain color well but lack the depth and texture of a picture printed on canvas. They are an excellent and affordable choice for a variety of images that you may wish to hang in your home or office. You can find excellent reproductions of museum quality pieces on paper. For example, if you admire a Van Gogh painting but are not Warren Buffet, a quality abstract print can replicate the charm of "A Starry Night" in your home at a fraction of the cost. You will also find a variety of prints featuring sports memorabilia, black and white photographs, modern art, even a collage of different images compiled from a computer. Framed prints can add color and style to any room and are an excellent choice for budget-conscious art lovers.




Canvas prints tend to be more the more expensive wall art medium, so it's important to select a favorite image in which to invest. Almost any image can be printed directly onto canvas, but the detail may not be as sharp as paper. Hand-painted original art, done on canvas using oil or acrylic paints, have a richness of depth and texture unmatched by paper. Abstract, floral, landscapes, and portraits tend to be familiar subjects for this medium.
