For months I have been wanting to create my own gallery wall and I wanted it to have an international flare. I started off with pieces I had collected over the years. Then I added some of my own pieces that I had made that had global and international inspirations. Finally, after finishing my world map art last week, it was complete enough to call it a gallery wall.
This gallery wall is in my bedroom on the wall across from my bed. I love looking at it as I fall asleep.
The best part about this globally inspired gallery wall is it literally is international. It has pieces from all over the world.
1 - Metallic World Map Art
2 - Metal key from a shop in Bowness-on-Windermere, England (2011)
3 - Street art from Paris, France (2008)
4 - Street art from Venice, Italy (2006)
5 - Street art from Paris, France (2006)
6 - Street art from Amsterdam, Netherlands (2006)
7 - Ombre Teal "Change the World" Art
8 - Art from a shop in Venice, Italy (2006)
Here are close ups of the pieces.
Each piece has a story and wonderful memories attached to it which makes it even more special.
All of the pieces from 2006 were procured while I was studying abroad in Cork, Ireland. The 2008 piece was from when I went back to Europe with my family to attend my cousin's wedding. The 2011 piece is from when I went traveling with my mom when she visited me while I was living in Scotland for my master's degree.
This gallery wall is not finished. I can't wait to add more art from around the world! It needs some art from a few other continents!
