The blooming popularity of landscape mosaics
(4 min read) Landscape or scenery mosaics are all the rage these days. In 2020 mosaic art was all about that greenery, from lime to deep Brunswick green, mosaic artworks seemed to be bursting with nature and life. In 2021 those jungle shrubs and Kapok trees, as well as lilies and sunflowers, sort of zoomed out and turned blurry. It turned out the world wanted a bigger picture now. People wanted to bring their whole favorite landscapes inside their homes.
From minimalistic craze full of white, chromed, and polished, to complete 180 straight into the arms of mother nature. Lush and wild, autumnal and chilly, it’s all about vast gorgeous landscapes in 2022. Apparently, we still want to bring the great outdoors inside (we won’t mention why). From coastal scenery to sunrises over big waters, from pastures and forests to views from your favorite windows and terraces, landscape mosaics are truly on their rise in popularity.
Depending on the scenery depicted, some usual landscape color palettes include greens and blues, as well as yellows and browns. These color combinations usually perfectly depict any landscape, and with the sheer intricacy of mosaic artwork itself, you will get the feeling you’ve traveled somewhere in no time!
Mosaic landscapes are usually created of glass or marble and those, in my personal opinion, are the most realistic looking ones. Both glass and marble scenic mosaic art can be successfully mixed with some other natural materials for a more captivating effect. For example, irregular natural stone shingles can be used to create cliffs or seaside rocks, while terracotta is great for vast naked surfaces like farming fields in the autumn or fallow land patches.
If you are wondering, how will you know if the scenic mosaic artwork is exactly what you need, don’t worry, that’s easy. If you can feel the breeze in your face and the warm mosaic grass under your feet. Or if you can smell the flowers and petrichor on a gloomy mosaic day. Or if you can be teleported onto a sunny street of a seaside town and feel the salt rising from the mosaic sea. There. That’s how you’ll know.
In the end, you shouldn’t overthink when it comes to choosing your own scenic mosaic art, because you can’t really make a mistake. Nature is always welcome these days, whichever way you decide to implement it into your home. On the other hand, you simply can’t have enough landscape mosaics. Scenic mosaic art never gets tacky or old, so go for it. It’s just one more way for us to preserve nature.
