About Triptych Wall Art
Triptychs are one among our favorite art presentation formats. They are a popular choice for large wall spaces, and they offer something different and interesting over a traditional piece of art.
In this article we will first briefly explain what a triptych is, then what type of art and media you can expect to find offered as a triptych, and finally a roundup of our favorite triptych wall art.
What is a triptych?
A triptych is one continuous image divided into three equal vertical segments. Each of the three pieces is hung equidistant from one another. This modern presentation adds interest and dimension to an otherwise "normal" piece of artwork.
They have the added attribute of being able to cover more surface area, making them a popular choice when it comes to filling large wall spaces such as over couches or beds and on empty walls or staircase landings.
What type of art works as a triptych?
Common types of artwork offered as triptychs include abstract paintings, abstract photography and even certain landscape photography images. Since the image is divided equally into three pieces, the image's composition determines whether it is a good candidate to become a triptych or not.
Triptychs are offered in multiple media options, the most common being gallery wrapped canvas. Other media options some artists and photographers offer are aluminum, framed stretched canvas and framed fine art prints.
We particularly like the gallery wrapped canvas option as a triptych because the image spills onto the sides of each piece, adding to the dimensionality when seen from an angle.
