Statistics reveal that the first usage of art is for home display purposes and true to that statement, most of us are constantly looking for new art-based ideas for home décor. As most of us also look for ideas to personalize our space, through a display of our ideas, hobbies and crafts, we often overlook our most creative possessions: our photographs. In this article, we will list out the top ways of converting your photos to art.Creative photographyPerhaps the most common way of converting photo to art, is through creative photography. This means that special care needs to be taken when your photo is shot. If you are not an expert yourself, you may like to hire the services of a creative photographer who can then capture shots that are timeless and would make great displays.SketchingPhoto art in sketch style is another creative idea. You can hire a local artist to sketch your portrait. However, this is usually time taking, expensive and there are no previews or re-do’s involved in that price. Alternatively, you can hire services of art studios that will create sketches out of your favorite photograph. You can choose the background, and also the colour of the sketching ink. Moreover, you can ask for many previews till you obtain the design you desire.Pop art from photosAnother way of converting photos to art is by using popular pop art options. You can thus make a photo portrait that is inspired by artists like Warhol, Lichtenstein, Blek le Rat, Banksy, Pixnit or even Fairey. While some free software can help you with this, if you want to create a timeless portrait that looks great, it is always better to hire the services of professional pop art studios. Unlike pop art artists who charge large amounts for creating pop art variations, the studio charges much lesser. Moreover, you get to choose from many options in design and print. Finally, you can opt for sizes, materials and gift articles to print on too.Photos to art collageConverting not one, but many photos to an interesting collage is another growing idea in today’s community. However the approach to designing such collages has become different. People now send a bunch of digital photos to the designer, who then puts them together in creative ways and then takes a digital print. Pop art artists who today influence the collage world, include Piet Mondrian, Richard Hamilton and other artists. Some styles you can look out for in collages include patch collage, polygon style and crystallized collage variations.Our homes are the worlds we create for ourselves. We try to beautify them with things from across the world. And with all that, we also try to put in a little bit of ourselves, to make the house our home. Photo to art options work great in this regard. While here, we’ve just brought up a few ideas that help you make your space strongly personalized, in the next article, we promise to bring in more ideas.Until then, happy designing!
