See the World!

The love of travel crosses paths with vintage charm in this altered map from artist Wendy Gold. She starts with a vintage map as her canvas, and uses decoupage and other media to make it a world of her own. Here, a fluttering banner proclaims a farewell wish, while vintage airliners fly west to the sun, and east to the moon and an impossibly starry sky. The print is made on heavyweight, 100% recycled stock canvas using water-based inks. It's the perfect piece of art for lovers of travel, or anyone starting out on one of life's new journeys. Made in the USA.

“Inspiration has come to me steadily throughout life, and I have been fortunate to be able to chase it,” says Wendy Gold. She explains that as a teenager she “spent countless hours creating insanely intricate friendship bracelets, kaleidoscopes, and ceramic musical instruments,” and in college made a headboard for her bed so big that she couldn’t get it out of her room when she moved out. Always looking for new inspiration, she stumbled across a beautiful antique globe at a flea market and immediately recognized her next canvas. By using recycled materials, vintage globes, and maps, she creates beautiful, geographic art.

    Comments about BON VOYAGE:

    A lovely work of art, with vibrant colors and a classical mid-century jet-setting feel. We are displaying it in a book nook, surrounded by books about travel and world cultures. The wood on top and bottom is nice and solid (unlike the cheap balsam used in so many products that claim to be "wood"), and the canvas is quality, as well. The size is medium-ish compared to other, typical household wall decorations (it is worth taking a moment to look at the measurements vis-à-vis your own particular needs).

    Comments about BON VOYAGE:

    I love this map!! Keeps reminding me of all the places I still need to visit. I'm writing because I accidentally viewed this map through typical cardboard 3D glasses and was amazed! Portions of the map just popped out and what was a lovely map was transferred into a stunning 3D map! Just thought you all should know.
