Visualising Wall Art

Have you often looked at a painting or an art print and tried to imagine how it would look in your apartment or home? Where would you place it? What decor would it enhance? What feeling would it give to the room? After all, if you’re going to invest in wall art, it would be good to have some idea of how it might look.
The good news is that there are ways to preview art on walls in any setting, even your own home. How? With art visualisation apps and augmented reality.
 
There are many art previewing apps on the app market that allow you to add images to a space as well as using augmented reality to view wall art in any space in real time. However, not all art preview apps are the same nor do they offer the same functionalities. In this post, I want to introduce you to three of the best art visualisation apps that interior designers, artists and art galleries are using to showcase artworks to clients.
“It’s really exciting to be able to offer my original paintings in a wearable form both for art and fashion lovers alike”, says Bridget.

How do visualisation apps help artists?

There are very good reasons for artists to use visualisation apps as it helps present their artworks professionally. Artists may want to see how their art looks on a wall, or to help clients preview the art in a simulated setting. Art lovers and art collectors find an art visualisation app extremely useful on the go when deciding to purchase a specific artwork. Interior designers and art consultants use these apps for themselves and when presenting artworks and ideas to clients.
