Our Story

The Hanging Man is a family-owned and operated company with close to two decades of experience. The owners, Lynda & Kevin, are Art Lovers and are passionate about helping other Art Lovers, Artists, Collectors and Galleries elegantly display their collections.

They realised the traditional way of hanging up and displaying art collections by individually drilling holes in the middle of walls was less than ideal. The precision needed to hang up just one painting can be very difficult. If you don't get it right, you have to start again, all with horrible holes in the walls. 

You may even damage your walls, which will need repairing. Then, when you want to rearrange your collection, you’ll need to patch and paint over the old holes. Hopefully you’ll have the right colour paint at home. The whole experience can turn out to be very frustrating and expensive.

So they decided to do something about it and the Hanging Man was founded. Since that time the Hanging Man has helped thousands of happy clients over the years beautifully display their collections with the Elegant Art Hanging System.

The Hanging Man has worked with many different clients with many different requirements, both residential and commercial, including art galleries, schools, offices, museums, apartment complexes, retirement villages and more.

No marks and holes in walls!

"Amazing system! I have just purchased my second lot of Nylon hangers and Smart Hooks to add more painting to our walls. This is the best system ever - so easy to use. I can take all of the art of the wall and move it around whenever I wish (usually twice a year). No marks and holes in walls!"

So much easier now to display and change pictures!

"We are so glad to have found The Hanging Man; now we can display more of our paintings, posters and prints in different arrangements on the walls of the living and dining rooms. It is so much easier now to display and change pictures. The track and hangers are completely unobtrusive but so strong and the care and expertise shown by installers Chris and Dan added to our confidence in the strength and durability of the hanging system. Chris and Dan demonstrated professional pride in their work and took great care of our walls and furniture during the installation, for which we are grateful. All in all, dealing with The Hanging Man has been an excellent experience. Thank you all. I will be measuring a couple of other walls and visiting again soon."

More than 50 metres of art rail installed!

I now have more than 50 metres of art rail installed, with a bit more to come. This was a combination of DIY and the excellent Hanging Man team. I went for the aluminium look rail with stainless steel hangers, which looks classy but understated. The photos showed heavy single paintings and multiple hangings; I've also hung mirrors. This is a well thought-out system that can grow with your collection, or just sit there unobtrusively if you divest. I am very happy with the system, and with the service and professionalism of Kevin, Lynda and the team.

The staff are so helpful and looks great too!

I purchased a picture rail for our office and the whole experience, from website, to purchase, to pick up, was easy. The staff are so helpful and the install was really easy and looks great too!

So nice to be able to move items around!

I've always wanted a gallery hanging system, so when we built our new house I had it installed by The Hanging Man. It's been over a year now and it's *so* nice to be able to move items around as we add new pictures, without worrying about marking up the walls. Well worth the very reasonable cost.
