We have helped thousands of customers decorate their homes and offices, one wall at a time.

How did we start this Business?

Read the story behind The Worlds Artist. In 2006 after I retired, I started to concentrate my time doing what I always loved to do, my art related projects. I met a very skillful painter in LA, who was doing a fine art reproduction of a picture hanging in the museum, and an idea came to mind. A partnership formed and a business is started. Now, twelve years later, The World Artist employs many talented painters and friends who only do hand-painted oil painting reproductions on canvas and portraits from photographs.

What's New on The World's Artist Art Gallery Website?

We have added a few new features based on customer suggestions besides our oil painting reproductions on canvas. After some customers suggested the same sort of concept and after we said "what?” we implemented and added this free new service.

Now, send us a photograph of any room in your house, and pick a painting reproduction you like. We combine both images and do a photo mock-up for you. Now, you can now visualize the artwork in your home or office, in your living room or bedroom with your wall color and your nick knacks everywhere. Pretty cool. Take a look at our Oil Painting Photo Mock-Up.

Other customers kept sending us photos of all sorts of things. Images they took from magazines, books and photos from stores, art galleries, and coffee houses. They all asked us the same question, can you paint a picture for me from this photo? After we said "what?" again, we implemented and added this service also. We call it Bespoke or Made to Order or Custom oil painting from photos. You are looking at a travel magazine, see a beautiful photo, and you say to yourself, “Self, this would make a beautiful artwork in my house.” Take a shot and send us the image, tell us the size you want and we will make it custom from your photograph. Please see our Custom oil paintings.

For fun and a little art history, we created The very interesting THEN & NOW photo section. See, the present day location that inspired the famous artists. We travel the world to find the exact location where the artists set up their easel to paint. We photograph it as it appears today. Now, you can compare side by side photos of the original oil paintings and the present-day locations. You can see what beautiful or interesting thing they saw that captured their imagination enough for them to paint it.

Yes, we could have put a beautiful meaningless stock picture here to show you some of our artists at work, so we did. We do have two pages that will describe what we do and how we do it with real pictures at work. You will see the variety and scope of the different artwork we are capable of doing and have done. From small custom made artwork to famous reproduction oil painting and portraiture, it's what we do! Take a look at Our Artist and Our Studio pages.

Our painters are all very, very talented. When it is time to do a specific work of art for you, not everyone is capable of doing it. Well, why is that? A painter that has is strong at painting a flower still life, might not be best suited for doing a dog portrait oil painting from your photo and visa-versa. Our management and senior artists determine who is best suited for your chosen work. It's not rocket science, but it is art science.

How Renoir Painted Oil Paintings and Portraits?

We paint the same way that Rembrandt and Renoir painted. We use paint brushes, oil paints, canvas, an artist palette and a mahl stick. That's it, he painted that way and we paint it that way, 100% painted by hand on canvas. Many of the renowned painters as part of their artistic training, were required to go to the museums and reproduce famous oil paintings on location. If they liked a particular artist or they wanted to paint in the same artistic style, then in addition to their Academy training, the art museum was the place to go. You can read in our Artist Biography section about all the artists that started off doing what we are doing, making oil painting reproductions of famous art masterpieces.

The Website is not Complete. Doubtful emoticon

What? That can't be good. You have been at it for a long time already. It is good because we are always updating new painters, new artwork, new stuff. It's a never ending process to keep it fresh, so, we will never finish it.

If there is anything you like us to add to our website, tell us, we might again say "what?", and then... surprise. We would love to hear from you. We listen to our customers. Keeping in touch and learn more about them, and from them to build a level of mutual trust and to build a level of mutual trust with our clients is important.

Finally, a brief thank you to all our customers past and present. We look forward to being of service to you now and in the future.
