Hello, this is what do we do at The World's Artist.

Also, we are experts in portrait oil painting from your photographs, pet portraits and oil painting of your home. 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.

What is a Oil Painting Photo Mock-Up?

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 wall art mock-up photo.

What is a Custom Oil Paintings?

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 made to order oil paintings.

What's the Then & Now Photography and Tilt-Shift Photo?

For fun and a little art history, we created the very interesting Then and Now, plus Tilt-Shift painting photos. 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.

Can a renowned oil painting be re-interpreted in a new method? Using museum oil paintings we decided to try to see what would happen. We took some of the worlds best oil paintings from the most famous painters and using Tilt-Shift Photography and selective focus, have made a fantastic new interpretation of some of their classic artwork.

Nothing in any of these oil paintings been added or removed, the results range from a look of miniaturization to a look of 3-D, as you will see. We are sure you will discover several paintings as you have never seen them before. Take a fresh look at Tilt-Shift paintings by many painters including: Achenbach, Bierstadt, Constable, El Greco, Guillaumin, Picabia, Turner and of course Tilt-Shift Van Gogh. See them all in our THEN & NOW art section.

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 artists 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 art movements or 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. We just added two more informative sections, art canvas sizes to help you visualize the sizes, and oil painting care on how to take care of paintings in your home.

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.
