WHAT IS MIXED MEDIA ART AND WHY DO WE LOVE IT?
The first piece of modern artwork to be considered “mixed media” was Pablo Picasso’s 1912 Still Life With Chair Caning. Picasso used paper, cloth, paint, and rope to create a 3D effect. This art form continued to become more and more popular in the 20th century, with artists like Henri Matisse and Joseph Cornell adopting it. Over the years, this technique has morphed into distinct types, including collage, assemblage, found object art, and even altered books. Inspired by this art medium, Minted’s artists combine techniques and materials to create unique arrangements that cannot be found elsewhere online.
THE BEAUTY OF COLLAGE ART
The origin of the word “collage” is French, coming from the word “coller” which is “to glue.” This hands-on art form is composed of artists piecing together different forms to create a greater picture. Collages sometimes include magazine and newspaper clippings, ribbons, paint, bits of handmade paper, photographs, and more. Collage wall art gives off a hand-made truly unique vibe when choosing to hang on your wall. Marvel at the design and interpretations of its meaning when hosting a party or entertaining clients.
MINTED’S ARTIST COMMUNITY
Minted has created a community for independent artists from all over the world to express themselves. It is through this expansive network that our selections are able to possess a great amount of diversity and varied perspectives. Artists vary in terms of training and skill set, but in the end, they all produce work that our customers in the marketplace love. While some are professional photographers, others are sketch artists, renowned watercolorists, and painters. You are sure to find the perfect piece in our collections. With mixed media art, the styling is so unique that it blends many of these creative techniques together and pushes our artists out of a traditional comfort zone. Have fun discovering their truly unique end results and perhaps feature one or two stylings into your wall decor.
When it comes to individual room decor, we understand how important it is to form a deeper bond and connection with the artwork you hang in your space. While perusing Minted’s art, you will discover detailed information about each artist, as well as insight into their inspiration and vision for the piece you’re looking at. With each order we send, we include a note from the artists as well as a certificate of authenticity describing how each print is limited to just 350 prints per size and colorway.
Abstract vs. Clearly Defined: Some of Minted’s artists focus on the construction of a clear image (fruit, animals, plants, people, etc.) while more abstract pieces use shapes, colors, forms, and marks to evoke emotion and create a lasting impression. Each style is unique in its own way and can help generate a very modern and imaginative feel for a room.
Patterned vs. Asymmetrical: Whether you prefer to color inside or outside of the lines, Minted’s artists have you covered. Some artistic arrangements resemble order and unity in the design of shapes and colors (such as colorful stripes, chevron designs, or perfectly-round circles), while others are more free-flowing and whimsical (think offset circles, beautiful and bold uneven stripes, and skies that bleed unevenly off the page).
Colorful vs. Muted: Minted’s collection of custom collage wall art is extensive, so spin the color wheel to find the right piece for you. You can select from impressive color arrangements that combine bright reds, yellows, oranges, purples, and more. Perfect for the entryway to a home, dining room, or living room, these statement pieces are sure to make an impression on your guests and serve as a conversation starter. Other artists have opted to create mixed media art in shades of black, navy blue, creme, grays, and pale golds that will be comforting or inspiring in a bedroom, guest room, dressing room, or cozy office space.
A FEW LOOKS & CONCEPTS TO CONSIDER
As you shop our curated collection, consider which look and theme best matches your tastes. Below we have included a few themes to contemplate:
CUSTOM PRINTING TO MATCH YOUR STYLE
Minted makes it easy (and fun) for you to customize elements of the print you choose so that it fits your style tastes. One size certainly doesn’t fit all when it comes to wall decor. As you shop, you will be able to decide the below factors:
Pick a size: Depending on the shape and orientation of the artwork, select a print as small as 5” x 7” or as large as 48” x 70”, depending on the room you wish to hang the piece in. Or, if you are looking to build a gallery wall, you can get the perfect option in various sizes between those thresholds to work with.
Pick a frame styling: Minted has a diverse collection of unique and high-quality frame options. Choose from a classic rich black wood frame, walnut wood option, reclaimed barn wood selection, and even some chic metal frames to make something perfect for your space.
