Handmade Oil Paintings from Digital Photos

Filed under: Art Reproduction, Paintings — admin @ 1:44 pm

handmade oil paintingsThese are days that you could take a digital photo with elegant ease as you have digital cameras that offer you all kinds of facilities. In case you want a print out, you have the option to print the image on paper or on canvas easily. However, any of these prints could not match the quality of Handmade oil paintings. You will never see brush strokes and the lively appearance of a painting in prints. Therefore, if you want to have a real artwork to adorn a wall in your living room, you must buy a painting made out of your digital print.

In order to get your art painted on canvas or paper, you need to get hold of a good talented artist. Since transfer of photo to painting is an expert’s job, everyone is not able to create such artworks. It will also cost you a bit as the paints used in order to transfer your digital photograph to canvas are generally expensive. These are paintings that are being made with UV resistant pigments that have bright colors. The artist also has to spend a long time in order to paint a picture on canvas. But you will find that all these troubles are worth going through as you end up with a matchless painting on canvas. Since the brush strokes could be seen and the depth is also there, they are distinctively different from prints.

Handmade oil paintings are one of the best ways to decorate your living room or the dining area as they are able to attract the attention of anyone who has an eye for quality works of art. Therefore, they are most suitable for housewives who look for decorative ideas to be used on their homes. When you have a beautiful garden and a majestic home, it is a good idea to have real paintings to impress your visitors. No one will be able to imagine that they are transfers of photo to painting as they look like original paintings that are made by artists who have painted their thoughts on canvas. The main focus should be on the photo you select to be transferred to canvas and the artist who will do the job of transferring the same to canvas. The quality of your paintings will depend on these two factors.

If you have a quality digital photograph and are looking for a company to get the transfer from photo to painting, you are invited to contact us. We have the artists who are able to do an excellent job for you. They will use the best paints that are available in the market and they will use 100% cotton canvas in order to provide the best quality paintings for you. However, there are lots of options for you to choose. The prices too are affordable. Your painting will be finished and made available to you with the shortest possible time. Our website is the starting point for you to possess an attractive high quality work of art. If you are a Vancouver BC Canada resident you are welcome to visit our show room to see some samples.

    Burning paintings as a form of protest!

    Filed under: News & Events — admin @ 11:39 am

    Antonio Manfredi, the director of a Art Museum in Naples, is burning three paintings a week from a collection of 1,000 to protest the Italian government’s art funding cuts. His museum is privately funded, and since the recession, barely. read more

    I think it is not fare to burn the original artworks, this is not only bad for the art creator or owner but also bad for the art reproduction or fine art print companies because there is no original to be reproduced!, I would recommend the Vancouver art gallery owners do the same but only burn the printed or reproduced materials, this will make later job for us and keeps the originals ;)

    Filed under: animation — admin @ 1:59 pm

    “Sculptor and engineer Arthur Ganson talks about his work — kinetic art that explores deep philosophical ideas and is gee-whiz fun to look at.”

    Thanks Youtube for 1000s of samples online, just search for “moving sculptures”, “Kinetic Sculptures” or “Kinetica Art”:
    click here for basic ones
    These can be made for a store front-end to attract shoppers’ attention.
    I like this simple one, the background can be made by a stain cloth print with a ligh source at back, a basic rotating motor and the design is not difficult: Kinetic art moving sculptures

    Kinetic object with 32 independently moving lines. Controlled by an integrated computersystem. The video shows some of the constantly changing ordered and random structures that appear and disappear. Dimensions: 4.20m X 2.80m
    Kinetic Art - Dynamic Structure

    An amazing display of 714 metal balls on strings. It really gets creative after 1 minute. So please be patient. BMW Museum

    For sure we will create a basic Kinetica Art for each four window of our front-door side when we have time! Radiance kinetic sculpture , Kinetic Art - Kinetic object or better one Kinetic Art - Kinetic object

The most studied restriction is that the squaring be perfect, meaning that the sizes of the smaller squares are all different. read wiki article…

    I am not sure the parents and the gallery owner should receive the top awards for marketing ideas or the four years old kid! for her work or both but below is the story and the video:

    “Artist Aelita Andre might only be four years old, but that has not stopped her opening her first art exhibition in New York.She is said to be the youngest ever professional artist with nine of her paintings on show at the Agora Gallery, in Manhatten, already selling, with pieces priced up to $9,900 each.

    Angela Di Bello, the director at the gallery, said Aelita had already developed a style of her own.Her parents, Nikka Kalashnikova and Michael Andre, who are also artists, both agree that their daughter’s art has an innocence to it.”

    Collaborative Painting, online and onsite

    Filed under: News & Events, Paintings — admin @ 4:34 pm

    Collaborative Painting can be done online or on site, webcanvas.com is a sample of online web sites that allow anyone around the world paint and save their drawing on a virtual canvas:

    http://webcanvas.com/#0,0,1

    Tunisian started the Collaborative Painting idea years back, see following Youtube video:

    “Tunisian Collaborative Painting is an art form developed in Tunisia in the mid-1980s. It is unique in its method of allowing a group of painters to work simultaneously on a canvas without discussion or planning beforehand. The result is a large painting created by a group of individuals that nevertheless looks like it was executed by a single artist.”

    Most probably the same collaboration ideas are done for other forms of art like Collaborative sculptures, Collaborative  singing! ,acting, dancing and more, and hope one day the on-site and online will be mixed together in real time specially for the paintings.

    Do you know any Vancouver Collaborative Painters or projects, we would like to hear from them.

    Filed under: News & Events — admin @ 1:06 pm

    It was Oscar time and this metamorph / Faceshifting effect was interesting to me:

    Interested in Shapeshifting concept ,read the wiki article:
    “Shapeshifting is a common theme in mythology and folklore as well as in science fiction and fantasy. In its broadest sense, it is when a being has the ability to alter its physical appearance. The transformation may be purposeful or not, depending on whether it has been the subject of a curse or spell. In some folklore, once the shapeshifter has become transformed, it becomes progressively more difficult for it to return to its original form.”

    Skin Printing using inkjet Printers loaded with living cells!

    Filed under: News & Events — admin @ 5:08 pm

    Researchers are developing a specialized skin “printing” system that could be used in the future to  rebuild damaged or burned skin.

    “We started out by taking a typical desktop inkjet cartridge. Instead of ink we use cells, which are placed in the cartridge,” said Dr. Anthony Atala, director of the institute.

    Hope once completely developed we Canadian art printers can print directly on skin instead of canvas, or tattoo people use this system to reduce the pain when tattooing!

    Google art project & Vancouver Art Gallery

    Filed under: News & Events — admin @ 10:23 pm
    Explore museums from around the world, discover and view hundreds of artworks at incredible zoom levels, and even create and share your own collection of masterpieces. Google is bringing its “street view” technology indoors. With the announcement Tuesday in London of the Google Art Project, the Internet giant jumps into the online art arena with tools that will allow Web surfers to move through 17 of the most prominent art galleries in the world, with the option to look more closely at individual artworks, including some that will be digitized so exhaustively that individual paint strokes and hairline cracks in the surface will be visible.
