Bare walls can call out for a great piece of artwork — and since Metal Effects is one of the hottest products going, the combination of the two can bring a stylish, rustic flair to any space. Canvas art also personalizes and dresses up any area, guaranteeing you’ll never have to stare at boring blank walls. We’ve found a few artists who do inspired work with patinas and oxidized finishes on canvas – read on to browse our ‘gallery’!
Becky Hicks of Becky Hicks Fine Art is a Texas-based artist with a love for nature and all things “country”. Her artwork reflects her passion and in this painting, the rust finish provides a background for an alluring, wild horse.
Artist Ali Kay of Chattanooga’s Positive Space Art is a master on both canvas and wall space and we’ve featured her before in our Modern Masters series. She frequently uses the Metal Effects patinas to add depth and interest to her paintings and this canvas, one she created for her home, is no exception. Ali also teaches workshops in how to create these treescapes as well as rusty florals so keep an eye on her Facebook page as her classes sell out quickly!
Scarlet Johnson of J82 Art Studio shares her patinated and oxidized works with us via her Instagram account and we found ourselves smitten! She specializes in decorative art as well as horse and pet portraits – isn’t this zebra stunning?
Art isn’t just for interiors! Hoity Toity Peacock recently created a patinated art panel with a bird motif for a client’s farm gate. It’s aged beauty works perfectly in sync with the rustic, organic surroundings.
A master of wielding the oxidizing patinas of Metal Effects, artist Igor Turovskiy of Igor Fine Art creates incredible art pieces with texture and creativity. This fairly recent canvas of a tree has a such stormy drama. So beautiful! Igor also teaches his techniques, with a workshop coming up soon at the Faux Retreat. See more of his oxidized artworks in his Modern Mastery feature.
We hope you’ve enjoyed these art ideas with Metal Effects and please, visit the individual artists’ websites for much more! You can decorate your home with art and paintings that you’ve made yourself or hired an artist (like the ones above) to create especially for you. Be sure to keep coming back to the blog as we’ll soon have a DIY Canvas Art project for you to try, too. Have an inspired day!
