(Relaxnews) – A painting which can blast out your favorite music could be the next big thing in the world of wireless speakers.

Soundwall” is a piece of artwork which streams music from your smartphone, Sonos system or similar devices. The print is simply hung on the wall, plugged into a power outlet and connected to a wifi network.

Customers can choose from a selection of artworks or submit their own print to be transformed into a speaker. It is even possible to create an original piece by painting on a blank Soundwall canvas for the ultimate bespoke sound system.

The entire surface of the canvas acts as the speaker. The concept has attracted attention after going on display recently at the South by Southwest (SXSW) music and film festival.

Wireless speakers have been given a huge image overhaul over recent months, with designs becoming increasingly slick and imaginative. At CES in Las Vegas this January, brands like Sonos, Pure and ClearView led the way with designs which were both aesthetically and technologically innovative.

Soundwall prices start from $949.
