LED Backlit Poster Frame - Big Naked Wall
Big Naked Wall, an online art gallery that exclusively focuses on backlit art is announcing its official launch this week with the unveiling of their “Life is a Feeling” campaign.
Big Naked Wall is a provider of large, backlit, and interchangeable artwork. The backlit aspect of the artwork is new to the art industry and is currently unique to the marketplace.
“We feel our product will resonate with designers and art enthusiasts alike. It invokes an emotion and feeling and at the essence that is what designers are selling; feeling. Our contemporary art concept allows for flexibility in design at a modest investment” says Raymond Wali, Creative Director at Big Naked Wall.
Titled “Genesis” by Zouassi, this artwork is the same as previous. However, once the lights are dimmed, you can see the visual impact these backlit frames make on its environment.
In addition to the art being backlit, it is also interchangeable. This means a new piece of artwork can be purchased without the frame and the existing image can be replaced. Big Naked Wall works with popular artists around the world to provide limited edition pieces.
The frame and artwork are self-assembled on site so they are easily shipped and can accommodate larger sizes without special handling or shipping charges.
“Our backlit art provides a new depth and impact that traditional canvas art does not. Our frame system is unique, in that you can easily purchase additional art and swap it out as desired. These pieces look great in commercial or residential applications, we are excited to bring this to market” adds Raymond.
Titled ”Colored Spectacle” by Mark Lovejoy, this is an example of the differences shown when artwork is backlit vs non-backlit.
Titled “Astronaut in Space” by Zouassi. This is another backlit art piece that showcases the deep impact that the backlighting provides on its environment. The picture below is used to show the relative contrast of when the artwork is backlit vs non-backlit.

150 Media Stream
Situated in the lobby of 150 North Riverside, Chicago’s exclusive new commercial tower, a stunning video canvas of more than 3,000 square feet serves as a dynamic digital sculpture for tenants and visitors alike. Dubbed 150 Media Stream, the permanent installation features commissioned works by both established and budding artists from across the globe.
To avoid excessive repetition of contributed artworks, Leviathan has designed an intelligent content library that will continually transform over time and empower 150 Media Stream’s curators with maximum visual flexibility. Using generative algorithms to heighten originality and relevance, the system is programmed to address seasonal, monthly, weekly, daily and even real-time considerations.
These tools, combined with a robustly-built scheduling system and rotating imagery from other commissioned artists, ensures views of the installation remain visually enticing throughout every moment of the day. Such an innovative enhancement gratifies current tower inhabitants, attracts desirable new tenants, and even shares art with the public.
150 Media Stream is a multi-faceted achievement in art, architecture and technology that celebrates the transformational power of art as collective experience and explores the interplay of art, space and viewership in both public and private contexts.
During regularly scheduled “artists’ moments,” residents and visitors come together to experience media art displayed at a grand scale, as 89 LED blades stretching 150 feet long and rising 22 feet high ignite into light, color, and movement. Developed in partnership with Chicago’s premier arts, culture and higher learning institutions and private supporters, the 150 Media Stream is an international platform for both rising and established Chicago, US and global media artists.
The installation also features competitively selected collaborative works by exceptional art educators and students through its groundbreaking media arts program, ensuring a truly representative cross-section of Chicago’s diverse arts community.
Located at 150 North Riverside Plaza in Chicago, the 150 Media Stream is the only structure of its kind dedicated to showcasing Chicago artists, culture and history alongside renowned and emerging artists from around the world.
