Buying original art can be a great investment. Many art lovers, however, simply consider it a real pleasure to own something that’s entirely unique. A one-off as you will. Original art can often be much more affordable than many people realise. You can easily pick up an original piece of art for less than the cost of some limited edition prints, and unlimited prints as well for that matter . . .
An artist may offer several options for payment and delivery. The transaction of the sale is carried out directly between the buyer and the artist. Acquire Art does not offer a shopping cart or checkout, you simply contact the artist directly and arrange the sale with them. As we do not handle transactions we cannot offer any form of payment protection, but we do offer the following advice. Our advice will help you buy art direct from the artist more safely. If you notice anything suspicious about any of the artists you have dealt with through our website please inform us so we can investigate further.
There are several things you may wish to ask the artist before you commit to buy an artwork. If you find a piece of art on our website that you are interested in, use the ‘Contact the artist’ form on the artwork showcase page or the artist’s profile page to get in touch with the artist. The following article helps advise you on what you should ask the artist to ensure you understand their terms of sale fully.
Most months and when we’re feeling particularly inspired by a recent event or celebration or topic, we hand-pick a small selection of work from our entire website. These curated collections may include artwork appropriate to the time or year or a special occasion or simply artworks we feel you shouldn’t miss.
I work predominantly in oils, which I find the best medium for expressive figurative work. They are very fluid and adaptable, but I also love the lusciousness and sensuality, especially when working on large scale paintings. However, I also draw in graphite and charcoal, when I want to do close observational work. I am often considered a colourist as I am drawn to strong colours, and the palettes beloved of the Bloomsbury Group.
Commissioning an artist to produce a piece of artwork for you can be an exciting process whereby not only do you receive a unique, original artwork but also one that is personal to you and one for which you have influenced its creation. There are many ways in which someone may feel an attachment to a piece of art and a commissioned piece is certainly one of them. If you have not commissioned an artist before, this guide will help you understand the process.
