Leave it to me to decide I want a new mini gallery wall in the middle of the gloomiest period of the year with the worst light situation and the first snow here in Munich. Leave it also to me to decide I want that mini gallery wall on the trickiest wall to photograph in my apartment. Perfect conditions for a blog post, right? Well, against all odds I knew one thing for sure: I wanted some new unique art. Or better said Juniqe art. Yup, Juniqe – a fab new source for art & more featuring many young artists.
Usually there is one big problem with art webshops: you end up browsing for hours and you feel overwhelmed by the endless choices. That risk exists with Juniqe too, but I must say I quickly curated my mini gallery like within half an hour. One of the reasons was the site’s great magazine section with lots of inspiration in pre-curated articles. I had a rough idea already and with the advanced filters it was a cakewalk. A moody, wintery palette was the goal and voilà, I am happy with my Juniqe gallery wall!
For my mini gallery wall I opted for three framed art pieces. The largest framed art piece is called ‘Wave II’ by the US artist Kristen Polsinelli. I loved the cool blue with its irregular waves concentrated in the bottom right corner of the artwork. It reminds me of an icy structure or crazy water swirls seen from above. It embodies a dash of freshness and coolness. A perfect anchor for my wintery gallery wall.
The second artwork is a small, moody sea photography capturing the spirit of maritime winters. It has a cryptic title being ‘PC2’ and is the work of Swiss artist Marc Gruninger. I loved the moody atmosphere in this art print, and the combination of the dark blue hues with the light wooden frame was just visual perfection to me. So this had to get into the little gallery wall.
The third art print is probably the most unusual one for me. I have no special relation or liking for horses yet I have opted for a square art photography showing a little herd of horses in a wintery landscape. I think I was captivated by the wilderness in this image, the free nature and the icy and fresh atmosphere. And maybe it was the horse in the center that focuses on the photographer’s lens and seems to look right trough the artwork that convinced me finally. Whatever it was, I really like the art print called ‘Winter Horseland’ by Kevin Russ who is a successful iPhoneographer. Can you believe this was shot with an iPhone?! Crazy, right!?
Three quick choices and my new mini gallery wall with a winter topic is all ready and hanging on that damn tricky wall next to my bed – honestly the most difficult spot to take pictures, excuse my wonky shots! So if you feel like you could go for a new gallery wall or just add a new art piece, have a look at Juniqe, I am pretty sure you’ll find something Juniqe for your home too.
