This unique wall art print titled ‘Birds in a cage’ is a limited edition print which has been hand illustrated using fine liner pens, digitally coloured, and printed in Melbourne by The Nonsense Maker. The artwork features a beautiful blue swallow with a vibrant red mouth. Inside the bird there is a cage which has two smaller swallows inside. All three birds fly through the sky but only one is free. The two smaller swallows fly blissfully unaware of their cage, representing the irony of the notion of freedom. This limited edition art print is the perfect bedroom art print, living room art print or art print for any room.

The Nonsense Maker’s ‘Bird in a Cage’ limited edition art print is hand made in Melbourne using all Australian suppliers. Beginning with a pencil sketch before moving to pen, a method called crosshatching is used to create the depth and the tone you see in the final design. This fine line art is then scanned into a computer and coloured digitally. All our art prints are printed on the highest quality paper with fade-resistant pigment ink, giving them the same life span as a painting.

Wall art prints are an expression of yourself and are the perfect way to make a space uniquely your own. Framed art is about finding the right balance of size, colour and composition, and it can be tricky. If you are feeling a little lost on how to frame art prints, check out our blog page for our best tips for decorating with wall art.

The Nonsense Maker’s Australian art prints are imagined from a fun and whimsical world where dreaming meets reality. Sometimes silly and sometimes sad, inspired by etching techniques used by old time illustrators. While the handmade greeting cards have much less detail, our animal art prints can take up to 60 hours to create. Each of The Nonsense Maker’s animal art prints come packaged with a vintage book inspired backing board, and a short story of the inspiration behind the piece.
