ILevel Installs for Mr. Brainwash & It’s A Thing

Poster for ItsAThing

We had the pleasure of working with friend of ILevel Nicola Stephenson recently on her collaboration with Los Angeles based street artist Mr. Brainwash. Nic created It’s A Thing, a new organization focused on changing perceptions and raising funds for head and neck cancer. 60,000 people are diagnosed with head and neck cancer each year, yet many Americans have little to no knowledge of this disease.

The inaugural event for It’s A Thing was a visual art experience of Mr. Brainwash’s work that took over 10,000 square feet of the iconic Starrett-Lehigh building.

All of the art in the exhibit pays homage to the vital functions made possible by the head and neck. Walking through the galleries you’ll see sculptures of headless angels, neon lights with positive messages like “Keep Smiling,” over-sized, multi-colored gumballs, and typewriters inviting viewers to sit down and tap away. ILevel installed many pieces in the exhibit, including the gallery wall seen below.

Net proceeds from the exhibit will be donated to Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. “Since my fight with head and neck cancer just two and a half years ago, I have been eager to give back to the incredible specialists at MSK that supported me throughout my journey,” Stephenson explains. To donate, or bid and buy Mr. Brainwash’s work and merchandise, visit itsathing.org.

Perfect Picture Hanging Turns a House into a Home

Many ILevel clients come to us having just finished renovating a home or moving into a new place. We are often the last people on the scene, adding the final touches to a renovation or move. We’ve been told that after we’ve provided our professional art installation services a new space truly feels like home. Here’s how we’ve worked with clients in recent days to bring a warm, personal feeling to living spaces through art placement and installation.

Salon Walls With Variety

Salon walls are expressions of our experiences and tastes, and they are a great way to make a room feel uniquely ours. When viewed individually the pieces in the salon below might not feel related. ILevel’s designer/installers created this salon wall to bring all of the pieces together in a cohesive and striking arrangement that feels like it could only belong in this room. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Salon Walls with a Theme

Deconstructed, brilliant orange Gracie wallpaper makes a statement in this themed salon installation. Choosing related images for a salon wall instantly creates a unified look. The images on each panel and their arrangement draw you in, a bit like a puzzle that you can endlessly rearrange in your mind.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Unique Pieces 

What you to choose to put on your walls says a lot about you. ILevel recently installed this Paul Vallinksy sculpture in a client’s home. This kaleidoscope of butterflies, made from aluminum (found cans) and wire, is an example of a piece that adds a finishing touch to this space, in addition to beauty, whimsy, and a wish for flight.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Family Photo Walls

Few art installations are more personal than family photo walls, and this one is a gorgeous example. The eclectic mix of frames and frame sizes winds up this staircase and around the arched window telling the story of this family.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Art in Every Room

Spaces like game rooms and bathrooms are sometimes overlooked when it comes to art installation. This light, modern space is perfect for a ping pong table. The colorful artwork amps up the energy, spark, and personality in this room.

Our Favorite Family Photo Walls

Family photo walls are one of our favorite projects to work on (and they also happen to be something we specialize in). We love helping families curate a daily reminder of their favorite memories, while also creating a beautiful display. Throughout the years we’ve built family photo walls in all sorts of styles, from colorful and casual, to tightly curated and gallery-like. 

If you’re looking for inspiration for your family photo wall, take a cue from some of our favorite projects from the past. 

A breakfast nook doesn’t get much more cheerful than a bright orange banquette and the shining faces of your family through the years.

Here, a selection of black and white photography in black and white frames creates an elegant display on a staircase.

This client turned a hallway into a gallery of family history. The photos, in both color and black and white, are given a cohesive feel with matching white frames. 

This arrangement is similar to the one above, but mats were added for a fine-art feel.

One of our favorite ways to add personality and fun to family photo walls? Include children’s artwork in the mix, like in this gallery below.

For a sleek and modern style, this client chose to hang black and white photography against a black wall.
