You have heard of abstract, oil, watercolor, sculpting, and molding art—but have you ever heard of DNA art? DNA art has become a popular trend when decorating your house. Genetic art is the most unique and contemporary type of art, and if you are looking to be creative and customize your own piece, this is the way to go.

So what is so interesting about these pieces is that nobody else can own this exact portrait, because it is made from one’s unique DNA fingerprint. Since nobody shares exact same DNA with another person, this is what makes the picture so unique. Every profile is different, so whereas you might have similar portraits to someone else, you will not have the exact same picture.

DNA art really surfaced in 1953 when the double helix model was discovered. The first people that discovered this type of DNA “art” was Francis Crick and Dr. James Watson who could never have known that it would turn into such a trendy masterpiece years later though.

The process of getting your DNA masterpiece made is a really neat process. First, once you have decided that you want to order this printed DNA art piece, you will need to request a DNA kit. Most kits are completely painless and you just need a simple swab of the inside of your cheek in order to collect some DNA. After you have received the DNA kit, you will need to follow the instructions to collect the DNA that is needed to create the DNA art. After you have finished the instructions from the kit, you can then send it back to get the process in motion. There are many different types of styles that you can choose from. This is completely up to you how you customize it. There are many different colors to choose from, so you are guaranteed to be able to find the right color to match your space. Also, there are many different sizes, from desktop photo frames, to many different sizes of stretched canvas.

You see, the DNA serves like a barcode for humans. Once these “bar codes” are set to decorate your personal space, that’s when the uniqueness comes out. So, what’s interesting is that you can take anyone’s DNA, whether it is a friend’s, family, child—even a special pet’s DNA can make this art for your home. It is also very popular to put two people’s DNA on one canvas, such as a husband and wife.

If you are looking to add a unique piece of art to your collection consider looking into DNA art, or even if you are looking to give someone special a unique gift, these also make very good gifts to give someone. The most popular gift to give is getting an engaged couples DNA, and get their DNAs added to one canvas, it makes an excellent wedding gift for the newlywed couple.

DNA is defiantly a work of art that will leave people asking question about the piece when they see it.
