Zoom, Teams, Skype, Google, Facetime, there’s no shortage of ways to open a portal into someone else’s home these days. Whether it’s for work or school, we’ve been welcoming people into our personal space via the four corners of our screens for well over two years and it’s becoming a natural way to interact. So, if you haven’t already, it’s time to invest in your background.
The space behind you is prime real estate for an art piece that sparks conversation. Pop on that camera and invite curiosity with a painting that acts as a starting point to getting to know you. Hang your favorite fashion accessory like a pair of Nikes and connect with potential mates who share in the same sneaker culture as you.
What makes art funny is taking something that feels so random to the art world and then turning it into art. The irreconcilable tension between the sophisticated framed, painted canvas and the mundane subject matter is what creates a hiccup in our brains. Anything from a packet of ketchup to a sunny side up egg will make people laugh and make video chatting with you light and fun!
If you aren’t sure what you want your walls to say but you’re feeling lackluster in black and white, fill the space with color. An abstract piece will not only inject some life, it’ll also up-level the elegance of your space.
One of our favorite ways to fill a background is with a painting that transports us to another land! Arizona, Beverly Hills, an ocean view of crowded waters… endless are the options of hot spots that immerse you in that relaxed, vacation mindset.
