If you are like many of us, you appreciate art. But it’s hard to know where to start, especially if you’re trying to find art for your kid’s room walls. You are not alone in this world. The founders of French-based L’Affiche Moderne had the same problem and can help you find original kids wall art that that does not feel like it “belongs in your dentist’s waiting room”. Even better, they can help you (and your wee one) with your French.
L’Affiche Moderne is French for “The Modern Poster”. The founders were inspired when they found many great books illustrated by talented artists, but were surprised when they couldn’t find comparably illustrated wall art for their kids. Hence, L’Affiche Moderne was born with the vision of offering original and creative works by some of the best illustrators, graphic designers and photographers around the world at below art gallery prices.
Their wall art selection has a vintage or retro bent, but an overall modern feel. Their contemporary art selection for kids has both vibrant colors and neutral palettes as well as vintage-feeling illustrations that remind us of when we were kid’s ourselves. The concepts are sometimes very modern, sometimes funny, sometimes educational, and always beautiful.
Examples above include a gorgeous around the world wall poster for a travel-themed kid’s room. Penguins in Antarctica, elephants in India, pandas in China, and kangaroo in Australia are depicted in the vintage-styled work by children’s book illustrator Julie Mercier.
This exclusive under-the-sea wall wall print illustration by French character illustrator Marion Billet features fish, turtle, sharks, and other sea creatures in a brightly-colored ocean world.
If you are seeking something delightfully different, consider wall photography to add a unique feel. This photo of a doll in a garden by French photographer Cyril Auvity is precious fora little girl’s room.
Finally, our favorite is this French language wall poster from French graphic designer and illustrator Limoon designed to educate your child on common French words like “arebre” for tree, “un” for one, and “glace” for ice cream.
You can purchase most of these and other wall art from L’Affiche Moderne in poster, mounted canvas, or framed print format and they ship to the US.
