Urban Smoke Signals

When it comes to wall-art, for those who can’t afford a few million for an original Picasso, you’ve got to be pretty careful about what you bang up above the sofa in the living room.

Self-portraits are extraordinarily naff, and only to be out-done by a portrait you’ve commissioned someone else to do. It’s the equivalent of an iPad-selfie Facebook profile. A lesson in truly tasteless narcissism.

Still life pictures are almost always dull as dishwater. There are only so many times anyone will want to stare wistfully at a pear on a lace tablecloth.

Contemporary art is the way to go. And luckily, there is such a huge variety of entirely affordable pieces, depending on your taste.

If you’re a city-dweller, this print might strike a chord with you:
