I’ve had this site bookmarked for a while now, and finally got a chance to go through it semi-thoroughly. If you’ve an empty spot for a piece of artwork, there’s a few gems that might fit. Here are a few random favorites.

Masterpieces Pattern Sheet

Oh, here’s another overseas item that’s just too interesting to pass up. No worries, though as it is available to buy (also through PayPal, if you like). What is it exactly? A pattern sheet, obviously, that you can use to hammer out a pattern in nails on your wall. Connect the dots with string and remove pattern to see an altogether different “Masterpiece”.

Irregular Mesh

Perhaps you’re a little tired of wall decals, and believe me, I understand, but take just a moment to check out this one by Camila León. It’s just the right size; it would look similar to wallpaper in smaller room (say, a powder room), and on a larger wall it would be more of an art focal point. It’s a limited edition (50-piece), so if you’re into it, you better grab it soonish.

So, whether you’ve a few bucks to spend or lots and lots to invest, you might find something that suits your fancy. A few of my favorites are below.

Paper Cut Art by Crafterall

I recently saw these handmade cards at a local store and absolutely had to buy one. Made by Etsy artist Marnie Karger, selling under the store name Crafterall, natural landmarks such as Manhattan and the Great Lakes are recreated in intricate paper cut topographies. Many sizes, styles, and colors are available, so be sure to check out the store.

Trapezoid Geo by Lourdes Sanchez

Textile designer Lourdes Sanchez recently collaborated with WestElm and turned some of her textile designs into wall art. I would ordinarily not recommend purchasing artwork from a mass retailer because I usually I believe that art should have some meaning when you choose to purchase it and put it in your home…but I’m a sucker for geometrics and Lourdes is a real artist so I’m going against my better judgement.

Chase October 2007 by Kate Bingaman-Burt

Just saw this over at Poketo!: In October of 2004, Kate Bingaman-Burt began drawing her credit card statements each month with the goal of doing so until they were all paid off. Now, imagine all that work, and think, if you did the same, would it affect your credit card balance? She has since paid off the original debt.

Gaps and Kites WallArt

Wall tiles had a big heyday a few years ago, and some of these designs by the Dutch company WallArt remind me why. All of their wall tiles are made out of the fibrous residu of sugarcane, making them 100% recycled and compostable/biodegradable. My standout favorites are the Gaps and Kites, but there’s ten other patterns to choose from if you’re interested.
