The Product: Sydney wall art print of the iconic Sydney Opera House
A fine art print of one of Sydney’s iconic skyline buildings, the Sydney Opera House. When you first visit the Sydney Opera House and its environs, it is the sheer scale of the surrounding structures that hits you. Mighty cruise ships tower over the water, dwarfing the busy multitudes of ferries, yachts, kayaks and motorboats. The vast, natural harbour is the gateway to hundreds of kilometres of shoreline, numerous beaches, enclaves and districts of Sydney. It is bordered on all sides by undulating national parks, historic sites and monumental architecture. Not least the two iconic, architectural landmarks of Sydney Harbour Bridge and the Opera House. The latter, designed by Jørn Utzon and completed in 1973, with Sydney Harbour Bridge as its backdrop, is one of the most instantly recognizable views of this vibrant city. This graphic, modernist-style print is a stylish reminder of your year in Oz. The perfect addition for any globetrotting householder. Perhaps, simply, a picture of your home city.

A signed Giclée, this artwork is printed using the highest quality acid-free light-fast archival 300gsm Minuet Cotton Rag. The heavyweight etching board is velvety smooth with a fine surface texture and is one of the most widely used media worldwide for artwork and photography. Using pigment-based UltraChrome and Ultra Violet (UV) inks, the Giclée printing process ensures superior detail, colours and longevity. The print comes unframed and is delivered in a cardboard tube for you to take straight to your local framer.
Need framing advice? We’d suggest a slim, white frame with subtly visible woodgrain and a white card mount, if you wish the frame to disappear – say, against a white wall – and the print to stand out. Equally as effective is the same style of frame in black, also teamed with a white card mount, to outline the drawing and act like bold, precise punctuation! The third option would be to go for a softer, warmer effect with a natural or stained wooden mount. All three will work beautifully, depending on the backdrop, and the look you want to achieve. It’s worth knowing that artworks such as these will often leap out, to striking effect, from a dark-hued wall.

Which size? For wow factor and individual impact, opt for the larger format of an A1 print measuring 840 x 594mm of this striking Sydney wall art print. If you want to include this drawing as part of a smart gallery wall or eclectic grouping of artwork and photography – go for the smaller A2 version which measures 594 x 420mm.
