How to Get Started With Custom Art


Wall art is an opportunity for businesses to amplify their brand through art that speaks uniquely to their space, vision, and culture. Whether it’s an eye-catching mural in a retail store, a thought-provoking sculpture in a hotel lobby, or a customized painting for a private event, commissioned art provides a unique way to support local artists and create immersive experiences that engage customers and employees alike.

Commissioning art is an exciting and challenging process, which is why many people choose to work with professional artist consultants for guidance. These experts provide a framework for the entire process that ensures each client’s needs are met while honoring the artist’s creative requirements and guidelines.

Expressing Individuality: The Power of Custom Art in Interior Design

Choosing the right artist for your project is critical, and there are plenty of options to consider. Here are some tips to help you get started:

DO consider the artist’s portfolio, reputation, and style of work. Ideally, you should have some conversations with the artist to get a feel for their personality and working style. If you are unsure of what to expect, ask the artist for a quote and a timeframe to complete the piece. DO be aware that a custom painting requires more work and time than a regular art piece, so you might need to pay a bit more. But don’t forget that you are getting a one-of-a-kind work of art, so it is worth the investment! Once you receive your new artwork, DO show it off. Share photos with the artist (if they allow) and write a review to thank them.
