Canvas Art

Art comes in many forms, but there’s something about art on stretched canvas that just feels special and important. Some of the most important artists in history used stretched canvas to create the most iconic and recognizable artworks that everyone knows and loves. While cultural treasures like Vincent Van Gogh’s “Starry Night” definitely belong in museums, you can bring a museum-like feel into your home with west elm’s canvas art pieces. With options including stretched-canvas prints original paintings by independent artists and prints of typographic or collage compositions on canvas, you can choose the best canvas art piece to suit your home’s decor setup.


You can frame your canvas wall decor, but be aware that the art piece has some dimension due to the wooden stretcher that holds the canvas taut. It is best to select a frame that considers this or to have a professional framer handle the job. However, because most of our canvas art pieces come on stretcher frames, you may find that framing the piece isn’t necessary to provide structure on your walls. Because our canvas prints typically include edge-to-edge printing, meaning your canvas art piece continues its pattern or composition across the sides of the stretcher, you may actually find that framing obscures a part of your art piece that you want to keep visible.


The canvas art in our decor collection focuses heavily on modern and contemporary aesthetic values, meaning there are plenty of abstract, gestural, typographic and geometric pieces from which to choose. Select a piece that speaks to you with its expressive form, or choose from canvas art selections that would color coordinate well with your wall color, furniture and existing decor. Ultimately, you want to choose a canvas art piece that appeals to you and brings you pleasure whenever you look at it. This is especially important because our canvas art options are often large, making them highly visible as a focal point in a room.


In terms of size, our canvas art pieces are typically several feet long by a several feet wide, meaning you’ll get to make a large splash of abstract color or carefully rendered pattern on your walls. These art pieces are large enough to stand on their own, anchoring an accent wall in a living room or providing a strong statement as the lone source of decor in a hallway. However, our canvas art selections are not so large that they can’t pair with other art pieces or look great in a small space. We’ve selected versatile proportions to make it simple for you to focus on what you like best. If you are looking for oversized art, we have some options for you to consider for making a huge decorative statement, both literally and figuratively.


From dining rooms and bedrooms to kitchens and entryways, our canvas artworks can fit in with any room in your house. While selecting the pieces you want to take home, measure available wall space to ensure your new canvas art fits in without looking too crowded. If necessary, you can rearrange your walls. Our canvas prints are lightweight, so they do not require heavy-duty hanging materials. If you add a frame this may change, so make sure you select hanging hardware that is right for the job. Hanging your canvas art properly not only gives it a fair chance to shine but also protects it from falls, allowing you to extend its longevity and potential for enjoyment. With options ranging from collaborations with creator marketplaces, such as Minted, or original commissioned works made by artists and captured for printing onto canvas, this product category allows you to capture the look and feel of classic artworks without suffering gallery price hikes.
