Mosaic Art

Mesmerizing Asian Mosaic Designs That Will Wow You

(4 min read) Mosaic art brings together the old and the new. It’s a tradition that dates millennia, but you’ll find plenty of contemporary examples. And although mosaics are rooted in Western art, you can seek design inspiration from Chinese and Japanese art. The result is an original artwork that bridges East and West. To showcase the versatility of mosaics, here are some Asian-influenced motifs that will wow you.

Fit for an emperor

Chinese ceramics—particularly from the Ming and Qing dynasties—are sought after by museums and antique collectors. With their bright sheen, cobalt-tinged designs, and uncanny craftsmanship, it’s not hard to see why. This mosaic tile masterpiece featuring an image of a majestic ceramic vessel could be yours.

Mosaic with a view

Traditional Chinese and Japanese landscape paintings are vastly different from their Western counterparts. Rather than concentrate on a focal point or on the horizon, your eyes wander across the work. The elements, such as the trees, cliffs, and clouds, all seem to float in the misty air. “Dual View” lends a new perspective to our notions of painting. 

Down to a fine art

One of Japan’s most acclaimed art forms is the woodblock print or ukiyo-e. The Land of the Rising Sun may be famous for manga and anime, but centuries ago, ukiyo-e flourished. When the artworks began to be exported to the West, artists such as Vincent van Gogh, Claude Monet, and Edgar Degas were captivated. If you’re looking for an art medium that will last generations, consider mosaic tiles featuring a Japanese woodblock design.

Frozen in time

“Frozen Waterfall” is as timeless as it is beautiful. This rendering of a landscape has an enigmatic charm to it. At the top half is a majestic waterfall dropping from a cliff. Its torrential flow is momentarily captured in mosaic tiles. The water crashes down below, forming a thick mist amidst the rocks and trees. What follows is calm and serenity. The muted palette also adds to the mosaic’s pensive atmosphere. 

Where East meets West

“The Bridge,” a mosaic design framed by cherry blossoms in bloom and highlighting a garden bridge, is like something out of a photograph. The image is a case study in contrast. The fleeting and falling cherry blossoms juxtapose against the permanence of the bridge. The colors of both subjects—a soft pink and a bold red—are very much different. This mosaic artwork is soothing as well as intriguing to look at.

Engineering marvel

The Great Wall of China is a marvel of human engineering. Although parts of it have crumbled or fallen into disrepair, you can trek restored portions of the Great Wall. We’ve explored a section that’s only 30 minutes away from the capital, Beijing. But don’t be fooled by the sprawling pavement. It’s a steep climb, even on seemingly flat parts. This mosaic art of the Great Wall of China will surely amaze your guests and bring back travel memories.

    I love traditional Chinese ink art. It always looks spectacular and adds a lot to the whole vision of the place. It’s incredibly stylish and very exotic. Making it in form of the mosaic makes it even more quirky which I 100% love

    The scenes look very familiar. I like that design of a dancing shape of green and yellow, looks like a cliff or something on a frame. It is so quiet and peaceful.
