How art commissions improve bathrooms

The Latest Sale team explores how art commissions improve bathrooms. With colour tones and bright window panels often the centre piece of bathroom designs, a specific set of paintings can exude an aura of relaxation and steady calm.

When to consider briefings for an art commissions project?

The Latest Sale fine art team highlights when to consider briefings for an art commissions project. For sure, corporate clients will often have specific needs, requiring artwork that matches their environment, colour schemes and corporate ethos. These requirements may be difficult to achieve with artwork that is readily available. A more tailored approach can address client preferences comprehensively. For example, if a client specializing in the manufacture of technology goods sells products with numerous USPs (unique selling points), these factors may not be highlighted in ready available works of art. Even if a client reviews artwork from artists who may have created artwork that already includes technology specific images, they may not encapsulate the essence of the client’s business and products. These include colour schemes…

How art commissions benefit architects

Latest Sale explores how art commissions benefit architects who work on both residential and commercial projects. Architects are often the key decision makers in respect of the overall look and feel of a building project. Whilst working closely with interior designers, a collaborative approach may be deployed to ascertain the right artwork that will be used for a dwelling or commercial project. Art commissions benefit architects seeking bespoke solutions for their clients. These bespoke solutions may be sought in instances whereby the client requires exclusivity of design. Such a client may also wish to embrace limited edition art prints for specific areas of a dwelling or a commercial endeavour. Art commissions may be used in exclusive areas such as a waiting area or prominent vestibule…

How art commissions create an aura of sophistication and exclusivity

Latest Sale highlights how art commissions create an aura of sophistication and exclusivity. From living rooms to dining areas, vestibules and bedrooms, art commissions can add real value to any room whilst setting the scene for exclusive interiors. One of the key advantages of art commissions is that fine artists can create a range of abstract artwork, landscape artwork or even street artwork across an array of mediums as per the client’s wishes. In addition to adapting to the client’s artistic taste and the general décor of the room, matching colours is much easier to address with projects that evolve from art commissions. Whatever the shape, an artist can either match or add a unique contrast to a specific colour. A signed piece of artwork…

Art Commissions — Prices and the Contract

Art commissions — prices and the contract are two key points that artists need to highlight to potential buyers. Provide buyers with the price list of all existing work for reference. Artists, charging a higher price, need to explain the reason. If a buyer wants to hire them for a commission within six months, lock them in at the current price structure. The contract should include the turnaround time, payment schedule, compositional review date, approval process, shipping options, payment structure, and reproduction and exhibition rights. An artist needs a new contract if they desire to make any changes to their creative process.

The Challenge Struggling Artists Face in the Art Commissions World

The challenge struggling artists face in the art commissions world is making ends meet. Most struggling artists need to find clients interested in their work and build a relationship with them. At the start, artists who risk it all by charging less for their craft just to get their foot in the door may regret this further down the line. In the competitive world of fine art and in particular art commissions, the need for regular income is such that artists may begin to sell their artwork at half price. However, this habit often backfires, as art galleries displaying their work cannot sell such artwork at a profit. So, the best advice to budding artists is that they are patient and that they remember that…

Best Tips for Artists to Accept Art Commissions

These best tips for artists to accept art commissions will assist them to sell their work to an abundance of clients. First, follow up on leads immediately. Second, make licensing terms clear. Third, ask for between 30% to 50% of the money upfront. Fourth, create and maintain long-lasting relationships with clients. Lastly, base pricing on the time it took to paint, the size of the pieces, and the different skills it required. An artist should communicate their artistic process to their clients by sending pictures of the ongoing piece. This will allow the client to build a meaningful connection with both the artwork and the artist.

The Key to Navigating the World of Art Commissions

The key to navigating the world of art commissions requires fine artists to perfect their promotional skills. Actively searching for clients who require fine artists to complete a specific project, arranging in-person meetings, and announcing a given project proposal through social media, newsletters or a website blog are all actions fine artists can explore in order to engage with potential clients. Additionally, fine artists can inform their agent or gallery that they offer an art commissions service. Potential clients will be able to find rewarding opportunities online by looking for requests and advertisements as well as approaching community groups where art followers in their local area often share their ideas. Focusing on creating opportunities instead of waiting for them is the key to success.
