In Greek mythology, there was the titan called Atlas who was responsible for bearing the weight of the heavens on his shoulders. He didn’t do it voluntarily, as it was the punishment handed out to him by Zeus. While holding the sky is indeed a responsible task, Atlas’ strength and endurance would be especially useful in art logistics. Fine art installation of large pictures takes a massive amount of energy and care, so such a job would be right up the titan’s alley.
At Fine Art Shippers, we pack, ship, and (de)install large-scale artworks all the time. It takes a team to handle the pieces safely, and proper handling techniques turn out to be especially useful if you want to save both your health and art that you carry. What to consider when you need to hang big paintings?
Fine Art Installation of Large Pictures
From a designer’s perspective, a large picture in a living room is the all-time classics. For an art shipping company, safety is first, and then goes the aesthetics, which is definitely a deciding factor for every homeowner. The first thing you should never do when dealing with bigger-than-the-world artworks is trying to install them by yourself or even with the help of your family members and friends. Professional fine art installation services exist for a reason, and any attempts to hang a big picture without essential skills and equipment might have tragic consequences for both the condition of a transported piece and the safety of your house and the people inside.
The fine art installation is a thorough process that combines experience, skills, and specialized tools. Experience allows us to build reliable plans and prevent almost any mistakes. Skills are something you get and develop with experience. On paper, everything looks perfect, but your approach might change once you lift a giant and try to carry it. Finally, installation is impossible without reliable hanging systems that make artworks a part of a space. By combining these three components, we achieve positive outcomes even in the hardest situations.
