If you've got a jet-setting family, as I have, it's easy to forget fairly quickly where you've taken the kids on holiday. (Let's hope you don't arrive home without them and then forget where they were last seen.)
You may well already have a home or workplace that is blessed with picture-rails. If you do then you'll probably know the benefits. Yet if you don't have them, or if you hitherto haven't understood just how useful picture-rails can be, here's the place to learn.
This article is the first in a series that promotes the creation of professional-looking art without the need to be a professional artist. Or, better still, without the need to even be remotely artistic. Yet, as some of the images in this article demonstrate, amateur brass-rubbers can create artwork which is so remarkable that only a seasoned snob would turn their noses up at it!
New for 3rd quarter of 2019, EasyFrame are proud to introduce high quality 360 spin photographs of all our picture frame mouldings. Customers can now see all the way around the frames so they know exactly what they will be getting.
This article is about the output of Roy Fox Lichtenstein, one of the leading American pop artists who - alongside peers such as Andy Warhol - effectively broke the mould. During the 1960s they created work which ushered in a visual world as fresh and revolutionary in the 1960s as the music of The Beatles and The Stones which it accompanied.
Now, in ‘Frame Academy IX’, we tell you how to hang pictures on the stairs so that they look well-arranged.
We all look for inspiration, and with that in mind you can’t go far wrong with a great photo of somebody who oozes capability. So here I’ve put together a collection of what I consider to be the 10 greatest-ever images of icons who, if they’re on our walls, can serve as a constant reminder (to us or those we’d like to enlighten) that we can do better.
This article is about the contemporary Austrian artist Rosina Wachtmeister, now aged 80 and reportedly still going strong. She has become well-known in Central Europe, though her art is sold in the UK and is freely available through her official site at www.rwlicensing.com, for her bold impressionistic poster-work which often depicts cats (she also creates cat sculptures, but please don't let this fascination with the fickle furry malfeasants put you off!)
This article is about cubism which, in very simple terms, is a style of art in which its exponents try to simultaneously depict every possible viewpoint of the subject-matter so it looks geometrical and occasionally like cubes.
Hungry to acquire other game-changing technologies that can enable EasyFrame to lead the pack and provide customers with results that are hard (if not impossible) to better, Rob Zanna explains here how the business is going to be the first in the UK to test another device. It's a high-end automated mount-cutting machine called the Novex, it's manufactured by the Swiss who have a bit of a reputation for great engineering, and it's not even been launched yet though it will hopefully be churning out products in EasyFrame's factory before the end of 2019.
