Walls Looking Dull? Get To Know The Artists Behind Our Fabulous Art Pieces
Let's face it. Having home decor that’s out of fashion is one thing, but having boring home decor is something entirely different. It can be tough to switch things up without spending a bomb, but fear not, it is possible to turn your walls from drab to fab with one simple change.
We’ve talked about the importance of walls to your home decor on this blog before, and the message still rings true. From perfect paints to our Banchory interior designer advice, we’ve long since shouted about just how much your walls can transform the look of your home. While tackling a whole painting project can be a little daunting, not to mention messy and time-consuming, there’s a way past it.
Wall art is a simple yet effective way to infuse your home with a fresh new look, full of your personality and passions. It might seem obvious, but having a unique print goes a long way towards making your home decor one in a million.
Here at Taylor’s on the High Street, we’re all about supporting the work of artists. A regular collaborator of ours is the wonderful silversmith Malcolm Appleby, and we’ve explored his work in-depth on our blog before This week, we’re taking a look at some of the other fantastic artists and which of their works you can find at Taylor’s.
Known for her maritime-inspired pieces, this artist captures the spirit of the seaside
Sabrina Roscino is a fantastic artist, based in the English seaport town of Cowes. Her work takes heavy inspiration from the stunning landscapes the Isle of Wight is so well known for, and her seaside pieces are ideal for a captivating splash of cool-toned colour.
Her works have a varied and unique feel, and each piece has something totally different to offer. If you’ve been looking for a calming print that still manages to make an impact, then the Side By Side Canvas is a fantastic choice for feature walls.
While this artist is best known for her work inspired by the seaside, her other work based on other natural settings are also well worth hanging on your walls. Blushing Bloom uses an autumnal colour palette that creates a warming atmosphere perfect for any home.
Or perhaps you want something geared a little more towards your interests rather than your environment? If so, then you’ll love The Library and The Box Office framed prints. These paintings use a versatile neutral colour palette and incorporate the best of pop culture for a fun yet unique piece.
With stunning contemporary classic works, this artist is in a league of her own
Another of our favourite artists based in the Isle of Wight, Ulyana Hammond creates incredible works that are often described as contemporary classics.
This Russian born artist takes inspiration from nature and her childhood in the beautiful city of Saint Petersburg. Known for its amazing architecture, Ulyana is known for creating artwork as unique as her home city.
One of her most popular works is the Watch Tree, which uses vintage watch faces in place of tree blossoms. This print is wonderfully distinctive and connects the idea of nature and time. While Russia is a big inspiration for this artist, she has also created pieces based on the Isle of Wight.
The Days End Canvas depicts a gorgeous beach scene, with pearlescent eggshell and midnight blue merging with the natural earthy tones of the ground. A fabulous piece for homes close to the sea, or if you just want to bring a little bit of the beach to you!
A talented artist known for his landscapes you’ll love
Anthony Waller is a fantastically unique artist, with little formal training and heaps of talent. After flying with the R.A.F in the 1950s he decided to make painting his full-time job in 1976, and thank goodness he did!
His wall art pieces have a singular abstract quality, and he is known for his work with watercolour as well as acrylic paint. He takes his inspiration from nature, with gorgeous prints of natural settings.
Sunlit Birch may seem like a run of the mill abstract print at first glance, but on closer inspection, the shine of the silver birch trees are easily visible. This print uses a bright yet subdued palette of whites and blues, with light touches of green and brown.
