Complementary Artwork Pattern
Should you have artwork along the staircase wall? We definitely think so! Stairs provide a unique opportunity to have your mini art gallery wall in the house. Below are our top 3 recommendations:
1. The diagonal line is the main feature here, emphasized both by the stairs steps and the guard railing. If the art pieces were aligned to this diagonal line, they would play together with the steps and guard railing. The art will match the stairs' natural rhythm.
2. The next distinguishing feature of the stairs is the same-sized rectangular series of steps. What if the artwork you choose along the wall is also a series of similarly sized and rectangular pieces? The stairs are a great place in the house where a series of artworks will work great.
3. Our next recommendation is not a hard rule; however, we think vertical pieces work better as stair art. The stair wall has more vertical space, and horizontal pieces might look too crowded.
Chuchin was born in Bucaramanga, Columbia. He defines his style as Contemporary Expressionism and Marginal Art.
In his work, he studies modern-day human subjects and our emotions and reactions to the complicated world we live in. His Neo-Expressionist portraits are distinctly 21st-century portraits overflowing with complexity, multi-tasking, and multi-dimensionality.
His series of 9 portraits are vividly expressive and can be arranged in a diagonal line on your stairs wall. They are fun yet complex with luminous colors on our HD metal prints.
Cute and Whimsical
Ukrainian 🇺🇦 artist Alyona Krutogolova from Kyiv, Ukraine, synthesizes the traditions of Ukrainian folk art and elements of naive art. Pet hedgehogs, dreamy floral cats, wandering sea cows, harvest hens, coffee elephants, spotted owls, and romantic frogs inhabit her world.
Your stairs will definitely become that island of happy silliness with Alyona's collection. Alyona's vibrant work looks great on canvas. With a uniform orange background, it is so easy to combine them to create elaborate collages. We have over 50 artworks from her, both original oil on canvas and canvas art prints. Each one is 12 by 16 inches, a perfect size for a staircase.
Fill your world with these cuties you take the stairs! 😻 🐶 🐸 🦉 🐮 🐴
A touch of sophistication
Hajime is a contemporary Japanese woodblock master from Tokyo, Japan.
Hajime Namiki follows the philosophy of the traditional Sōsaku-hanga art movement: Hajime draws, carves, and prints each one of his artworks. All of his prints are framed in the traditional hand-made Japanese frame made from cherry wood.
We were introduced to Namiki's work on our recent trip to Japan in the world-famous Watanabe Woodcut Prints publishing house in Ginza, Tokyo, by Mr. Watanabe-san himself.
These woodblock prints come in standard sizes and can be nicely arranged along your stair wall.
Tashi Gurung is a master Thangka and Mandala artist living in a remote village in Nepal.
These unique Buddhist paintings are painted using the traditional Tibetan process with Yak ghee paints. Tashi spent 20 years restoring some of the oldest Buddhist monasteries in Bhutan, Nepal, Ladakh (in India), Tibet, and Kham (in China).
The artist duo BLECHMEKI uses mass-produced American pottery from the 1930s to 1980s to create photo tableaux of stunning simplicity and beauty.
At first glance, individual pieces of pottery – such as vases or figurines – appear identical, but closer inspection reveals subtle and captivating variations in form and color.
Blechmeki's work would elevate your home to new heights with its superbly clean and modern aesthetics. It also would work great with small sculptures or pottery in your house.
Belarusian artist Inna Petrashkevich is a contemporary watercolor artist. Every morning, 365 days a year, Inna wakes up at 4 a.m. in her country house and paints. Her subjects are not only flowers and plants but also emotions evoked in her home.
Quiet and serene, her studies nonetheless suggest and underscore the wistful and fleeting nature of time - her artwork captures the evanescence of the short but beautifully evocative moments.
Her series will add a bit of color to a your stairs wall. House plants are one option. Small floral art prints are another one. Her prints will look vibrant on HD Metal and can be ordered in a variety of sizes to match your stairs size.
These are just a few ideas to help you find the best art for your stairs.
