Have you noticed a new trend in wall art? a Random Letter… a Random Word… a Meaningful Monogram… even a Single Number … they seem to be popping up all over the ‘wall art’ scene.

Don’t get me wrong, if done properly and hung correctly – WOW what a statement! But what I find interesting is that sometimes the word or the letter really has nothing to do with anything.
Hey, look what we found at this great little shop!
Cute, right? …but really random.

I have seen random letters spaced on a wall… I wonder what is the attraction… the shapes… the contrasts … the thought of making sense out of chaos… the interest to the eye?

Is this something that grows on you… or something that instantly appeals to your creative side? Either way, it is definitely something that has to be hung correctly or it would drive you mad! (at least, it would me)
Personally, I love the concept, the creativity, the thought and process that it takes to match an appropriate word (or letter) with an appropriate space… and I think it brings a lot of interest and conversation to just about any room. *But, I am going to stick my head on the chopping block here to express my distaste - personal opinion, of course, not meant to be an insult to any one - towards those photographic letter art.

Is it just me or does this seem like a commercialized piece of art?
