Masterpieces to match - Urthen Boutique Design art studio

Urthen Boutique Design Art StudioUrthen is a boutique design art studio specialising in creating innovative designer ranges of artworks that can be custom designed in the size and colour of the customer's choice and placed in series to create timeless pieces. Urthen works are designed by Belinda Duffy who has used her wealth of experience in graphic and custom design to tailor-make minimalist works to her client's requirements, using the simplicity of colour, tactile textures and striking balanced design to enhance a space's décor.

Urthen's 'Symmetry' range works with beautifully designed colours and subtle and elegant design. Select from pairs of designed colours employing Urthen's symbol of balance, or choose your own symbol, colours and sizes and a personalised Symmetry work will be created for you using Resene Zylone 20 flat acrylic on 100% cotton stretched canvas.

Urthen's 'Trickled' pieces are constructed with up to 2000 pre-dried paint strips, made using a proprietary technique. These are wrapped and layered around a block. The colours of the strips and the size of the piece(s) can be customised to a client's décor using Resene Lumbersider.
