Modern Art Canvas
At ModernCrowd.com we feature a wide variety of original art, including hand painted canvases. The originals are not mass-produced paper prints, or even giclee reproductions. Each is professionally stretched (aka “gallery wrap”) and inspected by our gallery staff, and is 100% hand-painted by the corresponding artist that we represent - immediately ready for your wall.
Unique Artistic Flair & Personality
There are countless benefits to having your modern wall artwork on a hand-painted canvas rather than a paper print. Obviously the quality is incomparable: a print does not have the texture, depth and personality that a canvas does. Anyone with an affinity for modern wall art will understand that the life and texture comes from both the canvas itself as well as the layers of acrylic paint.
By nature of being hand-painted, our artwork also allows for slight variety and flair, making your modern painting unique, albeit with a reproduced design.
Also, you may notice that we keep our canvases on the stretcher board rather than framing them in a traditional frame. By keeping your modern canvas on stretcher board, you will achieve thickness and texture in your new wall display, making your artistic accent more prominent and eye-catching. The art will really “jump” off the wall. As mentioned, all of our modern canvases are stretched by our professional gallery staff to ensure an even pull, thus eliminating wrinkles and waves that you might find in an amateur canvas art painting.
Modern Canvas Textures & Varieties
Depending on the painting that you select, our artists may choose from a variety of canvases that vary in texture and color. Some canvases are from a tightly-woven textile to allow a smooth surface while other artwork maintains a more textured surface. Some canvases are bleached white, while others have a more natural khaki color.
Our artists typically choose acrylic paints rather than oil paints for their modern art canvases for several reasons:Quick Drying: Acrylic paintings dry in a fraction of the time that oil paintings dry - leading to quicker turnaround times and safer packaging and transit of your artwork.Versatility: Acrylic paints can be mixed and used in a variety of ways, working wonderfully for modern wall canvases.Color Integrity: Your modern art canvas will maintain the beautiful colors, as acrylic paints have proven not to fade or discolor on canvas.
New Modern Canvas on Your Wall
To hang your new modern canvas art you will simply need a few nails and a hammer. In most cases our panels do not weight enough to require drywall screws or contact with wall studs. Simply pound a few nails into the desired locations of your wall for the painting. If you purchased a multi-panel wall painting, hang each panel individually from a centered nail. All that remains is to enjoy your wonderfully unique modern art.
