A couple weeks ago, I posted about Canvas Wraps and how classy they were, and how often they can be found on things like Google Offers, Living Social, etc. I recently received my order, and here it is:
My Bioshock Rapture Canvas Wrap Art
I decided on Bioshock because it is one of my favorite franchises, it has lots of available concept art, and I really enjoyed the setting while playing the game. The underwater utopia was a great place to start for a piece of art, and then it was as simple as finding a high-res picture, cropping it, and submitting it.
Here it is, hanging from my wall.
As you can see, the canvas I went with is somewhat shiny, but the colors came through really good. However, I do have some more tips that I want to share, based off mistakes I made. First off, I left way too much dark space at the bottom, and not enough bright color in the top. I should have cropped the picture up further so that I wouldn’t have as much unused dark space at the bottom. I also forgot thabout how far they actually pull the wrap, and one of my buildings goes off the top of the picture and wraps around. Can’t tell if I like that part or not yet, but I thought that part of the art was worth mentioning.
Close up shows how reflective my print is, and gives good picture detail.
As you can see above, the canvas I got is very reflective. That is the flash from my iPhone causing that bright spot, and it blocks that whole section out. However, you can see how detailed the picture of Rapture is, and gives a good look at the colors.

The size of my print was 16″x20″ and takes up a pretty big chunk of the space between the window and the wall. From here, it looks like any other piece of scenery art, but to the trained eye, they will understand the subtle reference to Bioshock hidden in an otherwise classy piece of canvas wall art.
