I know that putting together a gallery wall can feel overwhelming. It feels like a game of tetris with artwork that you have acquired in different places and different points in your life in one space. But that’s the beauty of the whole process! It’s figuring out the visual discourse of artwork that meant a lot to you in different periods of your life. It’s almost like putting little pieces of your story on a wall.
Here are some tips that might help you start visualizing your gallery wall:
First, the paintings don’t need to be in matching colors or frames. Actually, a gallery wall with all matching frames and color schemes looks generic — like it’s a showroom for a furniture store. Here you see a gallery wall of a nature and abstract lover. But you also see that other than the landscape theme abstract that provides a common thread, the artworks are quite different . This actually makes it more interesting.
