Do Art Commissions Include Sculptures or Installation Works?

Do art commissions include sculptures or installation works? When we hear about commissioned pieces, we typically think of classical portraiture, but this is far from the only genre available upon request. Sculptors and installation artists offer an impressive 3-D alternative for those interested in purchasing original art.

Sculpture commissions can be extremely varied to suit the needs of the client, so it is important to consider the specialization of the artist. For example, some sculptors excel at creating lifelike statues with minimal source materials. These options would be best for commissions portraying historical or biblical figures for churches or educational organisations. Contrarily, some artists prioritize construction and form in their works, which is best suited for abstract sculptures placed within modern architecture. Other artists prefer to create busts of real, living people. These artists can immortalize a living person or a family member by way of sculptures.

After selecting an artist whose style you admire, contact them with a specific idea. At this point you should consider the desired materials, size, colours (if any), and placement of the sculpture. The artist will typically discuss your preferences in depth before creating a miniature model. Elevate any space with a sculptural or installation styled art commission.
