Architectural photographs, or urban photographs, are ideal subjects for wall decor.
The architecture of the modern buildings gives a lot of interesting composition options to create wall art.
Montreal has a downtown area that offers urban landscapes worthy of the greatest metropolises.
The viewpoint angles, the contrasts, the reflections, the vanishing points, the symmetrical or biased compositions are all elements that make for unique Montreal canvas posters, each with a different impact.
Dynamic compositions: canvas or poster prints to escape
A photograph with a centred vanishing point will give some depth to your picture:
-This type of photo feeds your wanderlust and is perfect to decorate a smaller room, like an office.
-This wall decor will allow you to immerse yourself in the photograph and give your eyes a much-needed break in between computer sessions. We recommend a medium size print.
Indeed, it’s not necessary to print large posters to display in a small room. You most likely won’t have the necessary space to fully enjoy this print size, while a medium poster should sit perfectly right above your computer, where you can really appreciate the view!

Looking for serenity? Opt for canvas posters with a centered subject
A central composition will bring calm and serenity to the photograph. The viewer’s gaze will be focused on the central element.
The empty areas allow for the picture to breathe. For an impressive result, we recommend printing this type of photograph in a large or very large format.

Graphic composition, between photograph and drawing
Urban pictures can be very dynamic but also graphic. By using repetitive elements (like windows) on a 2D plan, we get some very interesting geometric compositions.
This view of the Place Ville Marie is particularly good because it brings together three composition characteristics:
- The general image is dynamic thanks to its vanishing lines;
- The main building doesn’t represent any distortion: it’s a “plan” type element;
- The central composition provides a perfect balance.
In medium or large print, in your office, your entrance, your living room or even above your bed, this Montreal canvas poster will find a place anywhere in your home.

The aerial type photograph, also called “bird’s eye” or “topshot”, allows you to discover a whole other aspect of your city. By crushing the proportions, you obtain every graphical composition, sometimes bordering on abstraction.
This photograph demonstrates Sainte-Catherine street in the Village. It’s hard to recognize at first glance this emblematic district of Montreal, which is why this picture is interesting. The diagonals bring a kind of dynamism that break the structural monotony of most city plans.
Without hesitation, this one deserves to be printed in a large format and to preside, for example, above the couch. Its elongated format is perfect for a living room wall decor.

Why not a portrait mode poster of Montreal?
Despite our eye being used to see horizon lines or urban photographs in landscape mode, the portrait mode still lends itself perfectly to wall decor.
Like a window overlooking the city, this type of Montreal canvas posters allows you to escape and to break the monotony of a windowless white wall.
For a successful “window to the city” effect, a large print is ideal. The relation between the view of the city and the building size has to be realistic.
