If you love bold, intricate animal art we think you’ll love our Andreas Preis collection of wall decals. The work of this Bavarian artist is anything but tame. My Wonderful Walls has brought his nature inspired illustrations to our site in the form of wall stickers so everyone can enjoy his art whether they rent or own. Check out the Andreas Preis Collection for inspirational animal art you can adhere to your windows, walls, doors, mirrors and more.

Artist Andreas PreisAndreas Preis was born in the Bavarian Forest in the south of Germany and now lives and works in Berlin. He has always had a love of drawing, painting and creating and studied Communications Design in Nuremberg, graduating with a diploma in 2009. Working towards his five year old self’s dream of being a “painter without a boss”, he is now a freelance illustrator and designer. The artist uses a technique called cross hatching to create the details seen in his illustrations. Almost everything is drawn by hand in his illustrations though he still relies on technology for some of it. His work includes not only illustrations on paper but logos, longboard designs and 3D projects like the Butterfly Effect.

Some of our favorite decals in the Andreas Preis collection are part of his “LIFE” series where he has paired animals with simple instructions like, “Learn, Hope or Love”. According to an interview, Mr. Preis did with Digital Arts Online, there is an idea behind every animal. Some of the connections between the text and animal were literal and others were more symbolic.  The use of texture, color and symmetry in each of these pieces makes them dynamic and appealing.

There are also cutout animal decals in this collection like Fox, a sly fellow in orange, rust, green and white. Or bird lovers might want to check out Blue Owl, a serene owl sticker in blue, tan, black and grey. Just like all My Wonderful Walls decals, the Andreas Preis collection is made with SafeCling, a high-quality polyester fabric material that is mess-free, removable, re-positionable and eco-friendly. Our wall stickers look painted on because there are no white edges and come in a variety of sizes perfect for any space. Made in the USA with loving care, it is our pleasure to help you find the perfect wall decal or wall stencil for any space in your home, office or business.

Animal lovers and art lovers will adore the new Andreas Preis Collection from My Wonderful Walls. You can find more Andreas Preis art on his website or Behance page. Or for a behind-the-scenes glimpse at his art, be sure to follow him on Instagram.
