We have accumulated quite a bit of artsy stuff. We seldom agree on what we should hang in the house and where, but we’ve managed to keep out walls from looking too bare. Here are some of the prints and pieces of art we having hanging in our home.
The first piece on the Mid-Century Monster art tour is a beautiful geisha which hangs in our bedroom.
Also in out bedroom hangs this piece by Tara McPherson.
McPherson created this print for a series based on the show Lost. Spoiler alert if you haven’t finished the show!
Now we move on to the office. We have a couple cool pieces in there. The first two you’ll see when walking in are these two concert posters.
The one on the left is from a Man or Astro-man? show that I went to in Athens, Georgia. The print is by Jay Ryan. The other poster is from when we say Jens Lekman in Chicago. Sadly, I no longer remember the artist.
On the opposite wall we have an original page from Scott Pilgrim, by Brian Lee O’Malley.
This was given to us by our friend Paul as a wedding gift. It has inspired jealousy from many a guest.
Now on to the living room. The first pieces that visitors will notice when walking into our living room are out minimalist Star Wars prints. The prints were designed by Justin Van Gendersen.
We really love them because if folks recognize the names of the destinations then they’re fellow nerds.
Also hanging in our living room is a piece from one of our favorite local artists, catlanta!
For those that haven’t heard of catlanta, he’s a local Atlanta artist who hides art in the city and then tweets the location for fans to go find it.
The living room is also the home of our largest piece in the house.
We commissioned this piece from Atlanta artist Peter Ferrari, or as he’s more commonly known, PLF. It’s a 4′ x 3′ aerosol piece, and it’s quickly become one of our prized possessions. Here’s a shot of it with a little bit more of the room:
Last, but definitely not least, is our beautiful Daredevil piece.
Leslie had this gorgeous piece commissioned as a wedding present by popular Marvel Comics artist Alex Maleev.
Thus completes your tour of our art gallery! Of course there are still many spots in our house that could use the right piece. And there are still arguments to be had over whether or not something has the right to be hung. Frankly, I don’t see why there needs to be a discussion on whether or not my Army of Darkness poster, signed by Bruce Campbell, should be hung in the guest room.
