Popular Batik Wall Art

Batik Wall Art

Batik is an ancient resist-dying technique practiced all over the world. To create batik wall art, the artisan must think in reverse, working from lighter colors to darker tones. A resist material — usually wax — is applied by hand to the areas of fabric where color is not desired. When the cloth is crumpled into a vat of dye, the wax crinkles, resulting in a network of fine lines of color. Then the wax is removed and the process is repeated with each new color, keeping in mind how colors will blend when layered. NOVICA'S collection of Batik Wall Art includes contributions from artists in India and Thailand, that make for wonderful inspirational and spiritual gifts. Batik from West Africa often celebrates dance and music, and Javanese batiks perpetuate ancestral motifs once reserved for royalty. In fact, Indonesian batik was designated a UNESCO Intangible World Heritage in 2009.
