Brave | Original Abstract Art


Bravery is not the absence of fear, but the courage to look fear in the eye and walk towards it. Through all the emotions of uncertainty, fear and anxiety, you've found peace  - you have chosen to forge a path forward. You have chosen to be Brave


Brave is an original abstract acrylic painting on canvas and is part of the, 'Beauty in the Battle' collection.


It is layered with texture - much like the best stories that life brings. The unexpected patterns, the way the paint runs and how one colour rolls into the next can never be replicated in the exact same way again in another original painting.

 Original abstract art by Australian artist, Larissa Nguyen

  • Beauty in the Battle is a collection which explores the strength of the mind and human spirit. With a play of white on black, dark versus light, soft melting moments, layers of texture and colour running over colour – this collection is a depiction of the experiences of life. Life can take you through so many things, some beautiful, wonderful moments and some truly darker days, but each day you live and soldier on, you become a little wiser, a little stronger and a whole lot more resilient. There is beauty in every battle and every struggle, and that beauty is you.

To help determine if the artwork size is suitable for your home, you may use the following guidelines.

1) The width of the artwork including the frame and mat (border around your artwork) should be between 2/3 to 3/4 the width of your furniture.

1.1) If considering more than one artwork for your space, allow for 2 - 4" of space between each artwork. Also include those spaces in your total artwork width.


2) To find the right size artwork for you, measure the width of your furniture

3) Multiply it by 0.66 (2/3) and then 0.75 (3/4) to get the size range for your art. 

For example if your sofa is 143cm wide, then your suitable artwork size would be between approximately 94 and 107cm wide.

       143x0.66 = 94.38 

       143x0.75 = 107.25

4) The centre of the artwork should be approximately 58" high from the ground. This is the standard height for paintings hung in an art gallery and the average height for a woman at eye level. 

5) The bottom of the piece should be 6-12" above the closest piece of furniture.
