Wall Art Ideas for Decoration

Wall Art Ideas for Decoration | Culture and Fun - Art | Scoop.it

Walls are usually seen as confinements, obstacles, but the reality is we all live within some kind of walls. Even those who prefer the outside are compelled to spend certain amount of time inside.

Decoration therefore, came naturally, and people have been using wall art since ever. Remember ancient Roman frescoes of Pompeii, or Renaissance and Baroque ceilings – it’s clear the need for beautiful inner space has always been there.
