Cosmic Drama: From Original Space Wall Art To Archival Prints
Get A Limited-edition Nebula and Space Wall Art Print
My space wall art captures galactic drama, and inspires awe and wonder. It takes the swirling stars and nebulae of the heavens and gives them to you in the form of limited-edition, museum-quality prints.
This is the result of a fine art painting, as well as a unique acrylic printing medium that showcases shimmering light and color, while adding more durability and light than a space wall art canvas.
All of my fine art makes beautiful space wall decor pieces and are Lumachrome Trulife acrylic prints, widely regarded as the highest quality acrylic print medium on the market.
Museum quality, or archival quality, means that a print will last many years without fading. This is determined by the type of paper, ink, or other print medium used, as well as how the print is processed, stored, and cared for.
With proper care, an archival print can last generations.
Why An Acrylic Print is Best For My Outer Space Wall Art?
Acrylic printing is a unique printing method that offers benefits over other mediums like paper and wood. It offers advantages over raw space wall art canvas or painting because it’s more durable and luminous. This is why this print medium is standard for museums and why I chose it.
An acrylic print is a medium that seals the paper print with a hard acrylic layer. There’s no need for a frame or for glass to protect it. High-quality acrylic is also imbued with image-enhancing and protective properties, making the image appear lit from within.
Acrylic prints are ideal for high-definition viewing since light refracts off the surface, increasing clarity and making the image appear more vivid. The refraction gives the image a three-dimensional appearance that makes a photo come alive.
Equally important is longevity. A ⅛” hard acrylic coat seals and protects your print. This makes it resistant to humidity, moisture, UV light, dust, and abrasions. Acrylic-mounted prints can withstand harsh environments better than almost all other types of prints.
Acrylic prints have a clean, airy appearance that makes them feel modern and light. This makes them excellent for a contemporary or minimalist aesthetic. On top of all this, they’re relatively lightweight and easy to hang. This is a big advantage over heavier materials like wood or metal, which can be difficult to hang on large walls.
While an acrylic print is ideal for vibrant large space wall art, not all acrylic is created equal. This is why I chose one that’s favored by some of the most renowned museums in the world: TruLife®.
A Brilliant Image that Endures: Trulife Acrylic
Key benefits of Trulife acrylic
This innovative acrylic was developed specifically for direct print and facemount applications. It offers multi-dimensional colors, as well as striking depth and clarity for high-definition viewing. This makes it perfect for my compelling space-themed wall art.
Here are 5 other benefits:
- It’s anti-static to repel dust and debris, making a low maintenance choice for space wall decor.
- It virtually eliminates all unwanted reflections.
- It’s 99% UV resistant.
- It has a double 1/8 ” hard coat that protects against scratches and is shatter-resistant.
- It can be wiped clean like glass and no special cleaners are necessary on the viewing side.
Lumachrome® paper is unlike any other archival transparency photo paper. It’s infused with iridium particles, which gives it vivid and brilliant colors that last over 120 years. This is what gives it incredible depth and dimensionality.
It has strong reactive properties that give off a stunning “glow” that’s perfect for space wall art. Good quality accent lighting can bounce off the acyclic, illuminating the image and making it appear almost backlit.
If you’re looking for space wall decor, or a space wall art canvas or print, my limited-edition space wall art promises to transfix viewers today and for years to come.

Care and Cleaning of a Lumachrome Trulife Acrylic Print
Acrylic makes care and cleaning of your outer space wall art is relatively easy.
Make sure to follow the mounting instructions and don’t mount in a moist environment.
Keep your large space wall art out of direct sunlight. It causes glare and distracting reflections, and will eventually reduce the print’s vibrancy.
When you need to clean it, you can spot clean using a dry lint-free or microfiber cloth. If a dry clean isn’t thorough enough, you can wet clean your print by making a solution out of mild dish soap and distilled water. Just make sure that your dish soap is fragrance and dye-free.
Never use any textured or gritty cloths or sponges, glass cleaning sprays, acrylic cleaner, or scouring sponges or compounds.
Read in-depth care and cleaning instructions.
Accent lighting is the ideal way to illuminate your print. A well-placed track or ceiling light is preferable. If you have this option, there are a few things to keep in mind about your bulb choice.
I recommend you get an LED bulb. There are different color temperatures available and they’re relatively cost-effective due to lower overall energy costs. Unlike traditional halogen bulbs, they’re not very hot to touch.
Don’t use halogen bulbs as their radiant heat can damage artwork over time if they’re too close to the print.
If you don’t have track lighting or recessed ceiling lights, you can still get a beautiful result with indirect natural light from windows or ambient room lighting.
The TruLife® Acrylic does an amazing job of reducing glare while the metallic nature of the printing surface uses natural light to reflect the details of the print.
