Modern Frescoes
Contemporary Interpretation of an Ancient Art Artwork for interior decor with antique, aged looks and crackled effects
by Lena Owens @OLena Art
A fresco is associated with something fascinating, beautiful, antique, rare and yes - very, very expensive. As each fresco exists as a unique piece of art, none have an analog. Possession of an original fresco is almost an impossible dream as it is extremely rare to even find one in the extraordinary collections of the wealthiest and most influential people.
No matter who you are and what your goal, the experience with ancient art has rewards that often go beyond all expectations. The study of the history of frescoes reveals originations in several countries over a wide span of time. Through time frescos have revealed each artists interest in life and a sense of connection to their place in time.
It is often through examination and study of these relics from history that both artists and collectors begin to understand the amazing process that is only found in the creation of this ancient art. Deep looks into the knowledge, history, country and time, gives tremendous appreciation and love for life itself. That love gives birth to an expert: the artist or the art collector.
People, who like to collect antiques and want to have ancient frescoes in the collection, can do it only in the form of photographs and prints or as a replica produced by modern artists through various forms of techniques. People successfully have learned to produce modern frescoes according to old recipes as a mural artworks, or they do it on canvas and it can be framed as a piece of art. The basic objective in frescoes creation is to produce an antique and aged looking piece of art transformed in a modern style.
There are also technologies, how to make a fresco in size, corresponding to the modern interior, which will look like a piece of plaster torn from an old church collection of Italy or Greece or other famous places and brought home from a tourist trip and hanged on a wall as it is. If it finished by cutting around the edges, it creates a shadow to the wall to be used as a wall decor in a modern interior.
The recipes may vary but the final result will imitate the real thing or the artist will bring his or her own touch to the ancient art.
One creates it with one’s own hands by following the recipe of a fresco process through trails and errors or to commission it to the artist, who knows how to create such a piece of art. Know why you’ll want to ask me because I know how to and can do it. When finished fresco I create is viewed, it has a cracked surface.
In this short brochure, I will explain the basics info, how I do, my own style of ancient technique, so you can try to do it for yourself or to reach out to me to commission a piece of art, which has qualities, looks of a real fresco with my own personal touch, no matter how small or big it is.

A story, how I've learned to paint modern fresco artwork on handmade canvas with vintage aged effects and rustic large cracks.
The crackled finish made by braking it with your hands and re-assembling pieces on canvas for indoor/outdoor wall art.
Have you ever tried painting on a rough wall like we see in really old church houses and some big ancient edifices;
if you have tried you would realize it is not an easy work to do but the result when you finally must have pulled through is a splendid one.
The type of art you get from creating an art on rough walls is called Fresco.
Fresco literally means painting on a wall prepared with fresh wet lime;
it requires a lot of expertise and speed in working with the environment because once the lime gets dry the color pigments get trapped in the wall itself.
It is a very complicated painting technique to engage in as a hobby and demands a certain level of material, drawing and color theory mastery.
In this work, we will be discussing the ancient (true-Buon fresco), when work is done on wet, lime mortar/plaster - intonaco.
And Modern (fake-Secco or Mezzo-fresco) styles of Fresco and the final effect each has when carefully and expertly done.
