Custom Graffiti

file-20.jpeg

Art Dallas commissioned this graffiti wall, created by a Dallas artist well known for his graffiti work locally.  The letters were routed out of wood to stand out from the rest of the booth.  'Custom,' 'design', and 'create,' are all things Art Dallas does in-house.

 Our mission is to encourage and promote creative artistic expression both locally and throughout the world. We utilize the finest materials and designs to manufacture custom artwork and accessories in collaboration with the finest contemporary artists.

The artist commissioned for the graffiti portion of this work is a local Dallas artist you need to watch. Krik Garnett spent a week creating this work with the direction of the Art Dallas art consultants and design team. As a young progressive artist of modern hieroglyphics, fine art, and design, Kirk “NOIR” Garnett has opened up his mind of color to the world around him. While being influenced by many of the greats, Kirk has chosen to push the ideology of peace, unity, love, and having fun through his expression and teachings.

Pinks in Decor

It's official: pink is losing its gendered connotations; it evokes so many feelings that everyone can relate to, from joy to lust, making for the perfect mood-enhancing paint color. Pink has shape-shifted into a stronger, more complex version of itself. We are seeing designers developing more spaces with sophistication, power, and subtlety utilizing shades and tones of pink more than ever before. 

Interestingly, pink is the only primary color with its own moniker (it is technically pale red) but the psychological effects are much different to its passionate foundation shade. In a study carried out in the late 60's, it was noted that color affects muscle tone, and that staring at the particular shade, Baker-Miller pink, after exercise, lowered the heart rate, pulse and respiration more significantly than other colors. The color is both soothing and aesthetically pleasing, making it a great choice for the living room or bedroom.

minimalist pastilles

2018 is ready to give way to a new minimalist palette. Soft, washed pastels like mint greens and sandy pinks will totally reimagine design spaces this year. 

In art, pastels are a specific type of medium. They are colors with low saturation but not necessarily the light, delicate colors we think of as pastel colors. While many pastels are light, they do not have to be. Any color that has a lower saturation and a high value is considered a pastel. Subdued colors fall into the pastel category as well. 

Soft, washed neutrals, greens and sanctuary pinks work together to create harmony.

 

 

Pink as a power color

When we said millennial pink has, "been taking over décor," We didn't know it would take such a powerful stance in the design space. Diverting from loud bubblegum pink, millennial pink is meant to make a statement. 

To make a room feel larger, light to mid-tone shades are the way to go. Rich, saturated colors such as grey or chocolate brown tend to make a room feel small and cozy and bring the walls inward. In addition to color, consider the framing finish. Glossy surfaces reflect light, and this helps to expand the space.

 

 

Sophisticated blush

Abstracts on canvas are a gorgeous large-scale way to warm up your space. The pink tones in these 75 by 50 originals on canvas draw the eye and warm the space. A blend of pastel and neutral hues is a charming touch to your already fabulous space.

Large Scale Art Prints

Art Dallas has worked with Acrylics for the better part of 3 decades! Acrylics in an Art Dallas framer's hand can be used in several beautiful ways. As a framing option, acrylic makes a major statement while staying classic. Printing on acrylic creates a new way to view a fine art print; the colors come out incredibly vibrant and it makes for a truly unique piece. Displaying your precious items is a solution to shadowboxes, where you may miss all sides of your treasures.

Original Artwork

The Art Dallas Gallery carries over 300 artists' works in-house. This gorgeous original on canvas has a resin top layer that gives it that unique shine. 

Art Dallas maintains a large inventory in the gallery, including original art, prints, and sculptures. Art Dallas fosters relationships with many art publishers, and clients also have access to Art Dallas local, national, and internationally affiliated artists to produce commissioned pieces.

Print on vinyl

Another key feature of the booth this year was the giant mural on the outside of the booth! We loved the bright colors of this beautiful work.  The work was scaled to roughly 5 feet by 10 feet. These works were created by a local Dallas artist and then printed on a large scale in the Art Dallas print shop! 

Vinyl murals provide a lasting and timeless look in addition to, or in-lieu-of, traditional media. Art Dallas vinyl murals are fully customize-able, allowing for the client’s imagination to be fully developed into a lasting impression. 

At Art Dallas, wall murals come in every look you can think of, from classic, neutral, or minimalistic, to bohemian, bold, and artsy. Digital printing has enabled revolutionary changes, bringing murals up-to-date with exciting designs. Unlimited color palettes are available and there are no restrictions when it comes to pattern size, resulting in designs that are big and brilliantly vibrant.

Art Dallas Latest Art Install

Art Dallas was recently asked to hang these gorgeous metal cut letters in the Dallas Uptown area! The letters were hung on an Astroturf wall to create the perfect juxtaposition between nature and metal. Sculptural works of art in a variety of shapes, sizes, and colors enlivens and activates a neutral space. Mixing metals with earth tones not only provides a nice, light quality, but also brings the "je ne sais quoi." This space opened the room while giving structure in the form of an art installation.

This style is the design addict’s must-have; understated for a room yet hyper-chic! We love that this space made this the statement piece; there's life to the design. One of the most fun remodels for 2018 is a refocusing on art pieces toward rich metallic tones: deep coppers, bronze, gold, and of course a crisp silver.

This custom art installation is lit from behind. This piece was created concept-to-conclusion at Art Dallas! Our consulting team wanted to create a work that would sweep show-goers right off their feet, and these antique roller skates lit up the entire center of the booth. 

'Custom' is Art Dallas' middle name! Art Dallas can provide a variety of custom solutions to solve your design problems. For example, how do you meet the corporate requirement for a travel theme at a hotel lobby bar, meet local code standards for surfaces in a food and beverage area, and do it in a way that is cool and unique?

 This custom copper piece was cut, printed, aged, and mounted in-house at Art Dallas! Metal works are one of Art Dallas' specialties. Each of the 150 individual copper pieces were cut by hand and then arranged for the most beautiful aesthetic appeal. This work brought some serious sheen to the HD Expo 2017 booth! The work now hangs for sale in the Art Dallas gallery. 

This style is the design addict’s must-have; understated for a room yet hyper-chic! Make these metal works your statement pieces to bring life to your design. One of the most fun remodels for 2018 is a refocusing on art pieces toward rich metallic tones: deep coppers, bronze, gold, and even crisp silver.  Trendsetters recommend a careful hand with these accents since too much can overwhelm the room, but with a bit of creativity and an eye for design, Art Dallas can install all the stunning new work.

3 Perfect Color Combinations We Want To See More

Black and white, purple and gold, gray and... just about everything; in the world of color palettes, there exists many safe, go-to combinations. Of course, those colors are all incredibly lovely and timeless, but what about giving something just a little different a try? For those moments when you're ready for a bit of a shade shift, consider one of these three powerful color pairings that we love.

SHN169_cn_44x44.jpg
SHN170_cn_44x44.jpg

BLUE AND ORANGE

You may already know that blue and orange are complementary colors, but a slight tweak in the shades (a little brighter, a little deeper) always creates a buzz for that interior space. 

Blues remind us of the sky and the sea, making them calm, tranquil and serene. deep blues also give a room a feeling of regal style. Mid-tones are ideal for creating a soothing environment because they invoke feelings of tranquility; these hues tend to be dramatic and energizing. 

Orange is an important color for many cultures; it symbolizes action, confidence, and courage. Expect to see a resurgence in a multicultural orange representing courage and bravery. This work's twist on a classic orange tone is a beautiful bright addition to the cool blue tones it possesses. 

RSFA123_cn_mx_48x48.jpg

Blue And Olive

These two hues might reside on the same side of the color wheel, but when paired together, they bring something entirely different to the table. The light-hearted baby blue color plays nicely with the deeply sophisticated olive green, revealing spaces that are fresh-feeling and lively.

Green and blue tones naturally recall health and wellbeing, and is a natural stress reliever. These colors resonate with nature, making it both calming and invigorating. Cool colors work well in most rooms within the home, and is a great statement color for the bedroom. Introduce green into the home with the use of plants and lush greenery which will further add to the innate serenity of the hue.

SHN192_cn_mx_55x55_60x60Bleed.jpg
SHN191_cn_mx_55x55_60x60Bleed.jpg

Grouped Neutrals

Our last color combo is a quiet focal point. With multiple muted shades in one space, you might think a struggle for center stage would ensue, but on the contrary, these hues attract equal attention when paired together. 

Neutrals such as beige, tan, or natural tones create a clean, airy backdrop for any design or color scheme. Green is often associated with cleanliness, innocence, and goodness. Because they are neutral, these colors can be calming and they make a room feel larger and airier. Bringing green and neutrals into a space does not always have to be nature's natural elements. Green and blue tones in artwork bring that lush feeling into a space.

why frame with a professional?

Frame design encompasses so much more than simply putting a frame around your picture. The size, color, texture, and style all work together to enhance your artwork, while simultaneously complementing your unique personality and style. But the quality of the materials used will work to ensure that you will be enjoying your art for many years to come.

THE GLASS

Glass, or glazing, is a very important element to the frame package, as it is the barrier that protects the visible parts of your artwork. All glass is not created equal, however, and for maximum protection, care must be taken to choose the correct glazing.

UV-filtering glass has an invisible coating on the inside of the glass which blocks about 98% of harmful ultraviolet rays, as compared to the 50% blocked by regular glass.  Most people, when they hear the term “UV rays,” automatically think of sunlight; however, there are still UV rays present in our indoor lighting as well. As we become more energy conscious, and begin switching over to more fluorescent lighting, this becomes more of a concern, as there is a higher concentration of these harmful rays than in incandescent lighting. UV-filtering glass, however, is not an absolute. Just as you can still get sunburned at the beach with sunscreen, art protected by UV-filtering glazing can still fade if hung in direct sunlight or harsh lighting. Care should be taken when hanging the art so its exposure to harsh lighting is minimized.

THE MATTING

Matting styles depend on two things: personal preference and media your artwork is created with. The mat serves multiple purposes, both aesthetically and functionally; it provides strength to the frame package, adding structure that allows the art to be protected from the elements. With the right matting and frame, the framing package can become a work of art in and of itself. Large matting is beautiful, end of story, but there are several ways to create that beautiful large, matted look! 

THE FRAME

As with matting, the frame serves multiple purposes as well, both aesthetically and functionally. The right frame provides strength to the frame package, adding structure that allows the art to be protected from the environment. A multitude of styles, colors, textures, and sizes are available in frame choices today, so your art can be framed to match virtually any décor. Bamboo-style mouldings can be used to great effect on Asian-inspired art, while olive wood veneers can be used to compliment that painting purchased in Italy. To complement today’s furniture finishes, mouldings are available in a wide variety of natural woods, from oak to walnut to natural cherry. Frame styles can even be combined, stacking one style with another, to create fresh, new looks that would be virtually impossible to find in a mass-produced frame. The sky’s the limit!

This Affordable Art Trend is Becoming a New Classic

Have you noticed that botanicals are making a big comeback? Maybe it has something to do with how plant-crazy ladies and gents are lately. To be fair, botanicals never really went away; it has to be their versatility that keeps them on trend. Most people, even those of us critical of mass-produced art, appreciate the graphic impact these pieces make, even when they're not the real deal. Vintage bookplates or pressed botanicals are obviously ideal, but there are tons of great reproductions on the market: big and small, cheap and pricey. And better yet, botanical prints impress wherever you put them. Need proof?

 

You fill up a large amount of wall space with only three pieces, and the blank background feels bolder and more modern than some of the smaller, daintier botanicals. These guys can stand on their own. These 3 bright originals on canvas are gallery wrapped and give this corner a floral glow. 

Canvas provides an elegant and stylish look and feel that has withstood the test of time. In keeping with that tradition, Art Dallas  provides printing and stretching canvas services that will add to the ambiance and style of your project. Art Dallas has a full gallery of original works of art!

Botanicals don't always have to be big and bold though. In fact, it's often easier to find smaller botanicals. But with the right framing smaller florals or botanicals can be the perfect fit. 

 
shutterstock_485513803.jpg

Enlarged and separated this photograph becomes more than just one shot. This statement wall would not give nearly the stylish impact without a colorful canvas. 

Art Dallas has a beautiful collection of artwork that can be cropped and printed on many different art medias.  Looking onto a landscape is the perfect escape from that city space. Art Dallas prints on paper are a cost efficient solution for providing beautiful artwork to your project. 

 

 

Custom framing is a large part of our business...we've created beautiful work  continuously under the same family ownership since 1988! We specialize in the individual custom framing project.

If botanical artwork isn't your style there is always room for florals in the framing. With ornate framing any piece can create a fun flair to any style. Art Dallas provides a full range of picture frames to choose from. Our fully custom framing allows the client the flexibility to design concepts and develop sizes that fully integrate into their space.

Spring Upgrades

As the weather warms, most people turn their attention to landscaping their yards or gardens (an admirable ambition, no doubt!). However, as any design-lover knows, this is also the perfect time to open the windows, clean out clutter, and give your indoor spaces a makeover as well. Here are some artful ways you can spruce your space this spring.

wallpaprty_burnhamdesign.jpg

Framing

If your art collection doesn't thrill you as it once did, refresh your pieces without letting them go (and going through the trouble of selling them). Display them using all gold — or silver, pink, purple, etc. — frames for an update that instantly changes the mood of the room.

Don't underestimate the power of a good trim. Whether on the bed, throw pillows, or framed artwork, a border will instantly clean up any look.

Organization  

You probably haven't noticed your bookshelves gathering clutter over the years, but all of those books, knick-knacks, and random tidbits (out-of-place penny, we're looking at you), add up to a lot of visual noise.

Spring cleaning doesn't always mean hiding everything out of sight. Leaving space for your artwork is the perfect way to bring character to your newly organized space.

 

 
edc100115randal03.jpg

Pop of Color

Does your space lack focus? Give the eye a place to rest by investing in a piece of artwork that stands out in either color or shape.

You don't have to grab your paint rollers or ready the wallpaper to revamp a space. 2018 is looking up — or at least the statement artwork trends are. Allowing your artwork to take up space is the perfect way to give a space a feeling of grandeur; talk about dramatic!

The introduction of art is a chance to infuse color and personality into a neutral palette; think large scale photography, paintings, or even mixed media. When it comes to statement pieces, go big or go home.

Bring the Green indoors

Add some foliage indoors in a dramatic way. We are missing our lush green outdoors so we are bringing a little green into your artwork. From originals on different media to art prints, Art Dallas brings color into blank spaces. 

Calming art has been a major topic in the design community and especially on our blog. Creating a soothing feeling of home as well as a clean put-together space is a heavy median to navigate. Bringing green and neutrals into a space does not always have to be nature's natural elements, but green and blue tones bring that lush feeling into a space.

Tackle an Accent Wall

If you've been dreaming of making a statement in a plain white room, take the plunge and create an accent wall.

When it comes to wall murals, you can find a design in every color, style, and pattern to suit your interior, but what are designers predicting to be the biggest trends for 2018? The fantastic thing about the current time is that there isn't one overriding trend. People are embracing their own tastes and individuality. We think of wall murals as art for your whole wall because they can change the atmosphere of a room dramatically.
