Hanging large wall art (more specifically hanging multiple panels of artwork) shouldn’t be the cause of your waking nightmares. I, too, have had the disappointing visual of sporadic pencil marks and nail holes peeking from around the artwork I just hung up. We can conquer! And it’s really easy. So here we go…

1. Make a pattern/template from a paper painter’s drop cloth (make sure it’s paper – less than $5) found at Home Depot or other hardware store.

2. Spread the paper open on the floor and arrange the panels as you’d like them to hang on the wall. For the wall art arrangements we sell, each row will be hung at the same height. Use a ruler or tape measure to make certain that they are aligned correctly. I find it best to first arrange panels on a large table or floor as you’d like them to hang on the wall. Measure the same height for all panels both horizontally and vertically with the necessary spacing. We recommend a 2-3 inch space between all panels. This allows for easy viewing. (Note that the panels we sell are packaged in order with #1 on the top and in the same orientation for convenience. Sometimes it’s hard to tell which way is up with abstract art.)

3. Once you have the wall art laid out and measured, trace the outside of the frame. With the canvas prints, it’s better to make small marks around the 90 degree corners of the frame as to not mark the canvas. Make a mark with your pencil within the tracing where the nail will be placed once the frame is hung.

4. Remove the frames from the paper. Pin or tape the paper sheet to the wall, ensuring that both ends of the paper are hung at the same height. Hammer the nails into the marks for the nail holes directly through the paper. Tear down the paper, or save for later. Once it’s removed, you are left with glorious aligned nail holes! Hang up the wall art. See? No sweat.

Custom large format wall art is becoming increasingly popular for everyone from the art lover to the corporate office. Never has it been this easy to upload your own or change the layout of one of Modern Mural’s hundreds of hip designs. There are a few basic requirements for image size and quality, a photo from an 8 megapixel camera will work great, and the least amount of alterations to the image, the better. Visit their oversized section for ideas if you have a large space that needs to be filled. “Having the option of custom layouts and uploads available on the site takes out the need for the middle man – and all those pesky designer’s fees. If having your own photo or artwork printed intimidates you, there’s a gallery of artwork from abstract to macro nature shots that will do nothing less than impress” says owner, Juliane Evans.

Artists from around the globe contribute to the extensive gallery thus creating a very unique fusion of styles. Martine, from France, creates artwork that’s very Zen, with rocks and botanicals as the subjects. Michael, from England, creates the boldest brightest designs that are not for the cautious. Both create artwork that embodies Modern Mural’s philosophy: “Art and technology have a symbiotic relationship. To us, not much is better than dreaming up an environment for your living space that is fresh and modern. We love design and we strive to capture a specific art culture in its advent. Refuse to be bound by convention. Decorate your space with cool photos. Create an environment that reflects you. Live to inspire. Be in charge of your art.
