1. Framed Paper Wall Art

A key consideration when it comes to decorating with paper art is durability. Framing is one of the most effective ways to ensure that paper wall art stays pristine from dust and curious fingers. When framed well, the frame should not overbear the aesthetics of the selected 3D wall art, but rather complement it, as is the case with the artworks by this artist below. The frame's subtle egg-shell colour pushes the crisp white of the work forward, accentuating its highly technical compositional elements. In this case, the frame complements the designs which are inspired by Islamic architecture (central), crafted through a meticulous process of nano folding. The framed piece appeals to minimalist lovers, and would be a sophisticated addition to a corporate or hotel space.


2. Statement Metallic Art Showpiece

Merging minimalism with pop art sensibilities, metallic art achieves the ideal balance between being a show-stopper and exuding sophistication, embracing both contemporary aesthetics and classic charm. Whether enhancing modern interiors or traditional spaces, abstract metal wall art seamlessly bridges the gap between bold expression and refined elegance. Its reflective surfaces interact with ambient light, crafting ever-changing visual displays throughout the day.
