What is a wall without art? To us art brings so much to a space, not only will it add colors, texture and a certain mood. It will also bring a piece of the artists story into your space. Art – is a subject that fascinates us. It is something that allows us to analyze and come up with stories on why the art was taken and what it says to the artist. We always admire the creativity in it and of course are always imagining them in an interior setting. Certain pieces of art at times, gets us inspired for a whole design concept and mood for a space – simply by that art piece having that wow effect on us.

With some new On The Wall interviews coming our way we thought to round up some of our favorite On The Wall talks with some of our inspiring and talented friends. All which are individuals with a passion of the arts and whom uses an expression appealing to us and which we wish to adorn a wall with.
If you wish to see the whole interview simply press the images and you will be redirected to the inspiring talks with the artists.
Terence Hannum reached out to us after seeing last weeks ‘On The Wall’ post with Arjan. Not only were we happy that someone read our post, but also that they wished to be part of the series. I straight away clicked the link to Terence website and was greeted with a talented and interesting artist.
Alike anything we have shown here, Terence uses cassette tapes as his material for his visual arts. The cassette tapes are a reflection of his second talent and passion: music. By combining the two art forms he has created something meaningful and powerful for him whilst providing us with interesting pieces to hang on the wall. They are pretty cool right?

An artist which leaves trays of inspiration through his art and passion for the art is, Arjan Janssen. He was born 1965 in Eindhoven Netherlands and started his artistic academics in his early twenties, this followed by philosophy classes. Combining his educational journey together with his passion and natural talent for the arts he embarked the art scene. And aren’t we glad he did so?
Illustratations; an art form which fascinates me! Perhaps this fascination is because I secretly wish I could draw something worth looking at. Ok well enough of me…and back to the artist of this gorgeously painted elephant – Stina Persson. Stina is currently based in Stockholm but has previous to that spent a few years living in New York City.
With an extensive portfolio and with clients like Coca Cola, Target, Elle UK and Nylon magazine amongst some, you might already have stumbled upon her work. Myself I came across her art during one of my late Pinterest searches.
