Artist Statement: The wall art prints in the Cityscapes Gallery are a compilation of pieces I did centered around city skylines and urban high-rises. The look is unique as I used a variety of watercolor and oil painting techniques, as well as straight black & white and color photography prints. The different techniques create totally different visual experiences for a variety of interior designs. Many of the styles can be used in different decor depending on the way the art print is matted and framed. The final presentation can make a world of difference allowing the print to either stand out as a focal point or blend in with the rest of the room as a complimentary addition to the overall look.
My approach to the prints in this gallery was to present city skylines and urban high-rises in different elements. Some of the prints are very precise and linear in their presentation, other prints are abstract and suggestive in the elements they capture. I focused around two specific cities for this collection, San Diego and Seattle. Both cities are younger and newer in their skylines and offer a wide gambit of urban architecture to choose from.
I would also like to note that I am available for custom work in printing an art print for you. I have re-cropped prints to fit a specific size for a client and added wider white matting so a print can be immediately put into an existing frame with a matted look. An example of this would be some of the black and white photography art prints. I left some of those prints with the wide white matting look. My pricing is based on the ultimate size of the print and not the extra work to customize. I believe this is one of the advantages I have in my gallery since I do my own printing.
I invite you to share in my love of art and take some of these art prints home for your own Wall Gallery! Kirt Tisdale
