I am huge fan of Gray Malin’s photography.  Many of you may recognize his name from his Prada Marfa work, but what really spoke to me was the aerial photography in his À La Plage, À La Piscine series.  In his words, …a simple beach or pool becomes a blank canvas that allows me to start seeing the world as art. People and objects become patterns creating repetition, shape and form…”

I have been searching high and low for new artwork to place in my master bedroom.  I knew I wanted something beach-themed, serene, and oversized.  The one shown above is titled St. Tropez Tahiti Club and is one of my favorites.  I like the juxtaposition of the ocean with the umbrellas and from up above, these umbrellas take on uniformity and color that wonderfully complements the blue of the ocean.   So when I saw this on One King’s Lane, I snatched it up!

Perhaps investment-piece artwork is not your thing but you still want the look.  Don’t fret.  Before I found this deal, I looked at other options.  I found a couple of prints from Society6 that gave the same feel of distance.  The first one is from an unnamed beach and the second is of Coney Island.  Both come in different sizes but the largest is 28 x 28.

If you want to spend more than the Society6 option but not quite as much as Gray Malin, I also found great minimalist photography by Max Wanger.  Specifically, the ones simply titled Dip and Tulum garnered great feelings of relaxation from afar.  His shop offers multiple sizes of the same print with the largest size being 16 x 24 and 30 x 45 respectively.
