Create Your Own Salon Wall With These Affordable, Vintage-Inspired Artworks

Shopping

When we asked Sydney-based stylist Jono Fleming his tips for creating the perfect art wall earlier this year, he was quick to provide plenty of options for low-cost ways to bulk up your collection. But we had no idea he was about to create his own affordable artwork solution!

Palette by Jono Fleming is his latest project: a series of limited-edition digital prints – that look just like paintings – on stretched canvas. Inspired by the vintage artworks and prints that sometimes seem impossible to actually find, Jono collaborated with friend and digital artist, Rachel Stevens to produce a series of vintage-style still-lifes and landscapes, drawn digitally. With a distinctly found-this-gem-at-an-op-shop vibe, the pieces are designed to be the perfect finishing touch for any interior – at an affordable price. We love!

‘I wanted artworks that felt personal, special and bring an eclectic feeling to your home decor.’ – Jono Fleming

Jono Fleming is never not redecorating. While pottering around during lockdown earlier this year, and invariably thinking about ways to restyle his house, he realised he wanted some small-scale, vintage artworks that wouldn’t cost him an arm and a leg. The artworks he wanted were not dissimilar to the dusty framed pieces you might find at an op-shop, but his search for them proved fruitless. So, he set about making them himself!

‘I wanted a collection of art that felt classic but could work in a modern home and across a variety of styles,’ he explains. ‘It needed to be versatile.’

So he contacted artist and illustrator Rachel Stevens to be his collaboration partner. Though Rachel is a multimedia artist who also works with watercolours and inks, Jono was particularly interested in exploring her digital art for Palette; namely, her ability to create painterly images with large, textured brushstrokes on a digital canvas.

Armed with a brief and some of Jono’s moodboards, Rachel created an original series of moody still-lifes and pastel landscapes. Cross-sections of pomegranates, melons scattered across an indigo tablescape, a dusty pink sky over rolling green hills; you can hardly tell that Rachel created each of these compositions without a paintbrush!

Each artworks is printed on a polycotton canvas, stretched and framed in a lime-washed timber float frame. Each print is available in an edition of 100, priced between $165-$260, and can be bought as single pieces or as part of a pack (did someone say ‘salon wall’…?).

‘With Palette, I’m offering a way to buy art at an entry-level price point’ says Jono. ‘Affordable art can still be a unique, special and personal experience for the owner.’

Keen to add a vintage touch to your home? ‘Palette’ is available to shop now here.

Palette’ is a continuous project and Jono is always looking for artists to collaborate with. If that’s you, hit him up here!
