Art Commissions: what is the process? Before we begin, let’s take a quick look at the official definition. Commissioning art is the act of hiring an artist to create a piece of artwork based on the client’s request. There are various reasons why clients commission artworks. One reason could be because they appreciate the work of an artist, or rather they wish to own an original piece of artwork, tailored to a specific dimension within a given budget.
Art commissioning may seem intimidating at first. Luckily, a client can contact their local gallery to help guide them to their final selection of a suitable artist who will be able to adhere to their specific brief. Moreover, most artists are willing to work on art commissions projects and will therefore gladly create a bespoke piece that matches the client’s specifications and budgetary requirement.
