About Our Oil Paintings
Are They Real?
We get asked this question more frequently than any other. Yes, these are real oil paintings, produced by hand, using brushes, palette knives, oil paint, and acrylic. No, these are not mass produced or some how machine made, as some department stores now sell.
Who Paints Them?
We employ artists from several locations around the world. Many are based in the worlds huge artisan centres, such as Hong Kong, Prague, or New York, while others are right here at home in Canada.
Shouldn’t These Cost More?
Yes, and no. We sell, confidentially, to several galleries throughout North America who do in fact charge between 100-500% more than what we sell it to them for. Operating galleries is financially difficult, and believe it or not, this huge markup is often needed for them to stay open and reasonably profitable. However, we also offer the same works through our website, and since we do not have to pay for a showroom, and we produce the artwork ourselves, it affords us the chance to sell to normal Canadian buyers at a much lower rate than they can access it anywhere else.
2 Types of Oil Paintings – Explore Below
Original Oil Paintings
Original Oil Paintings are hand made, using brushes, palette knives, oil paints, and where appropriate for effect, acrylic and spray paints. They are original works, and not machine-made or mass-produced. Our original oil painting collections often focus on a topic or subject type, such as landscapes, or city life. They are also typically composed on a single canvas, vs. multiple canvases.
Multipanel Oil Paintings
Multipanels are a very recent innovation, and you saw it first right here at Art Innovations. We first came by this highly eye-catching style of painting at an arts show in New York, and quickly began developing a collection to rival any before seen.
We use anywhere between 2 – 7 panels to create these extra-sized works of art. By also using a wide variety of panel sizes, we can create a whole world of wall art that will fit any shape, any size, and every budget.
Like our original oil paintings, all multipanel oil paintings are HAND-MADE, and never machine reproduced. Each and every one is unique, and while our samples online do convey the general colour scheme, orientation, and proportional dimension, buyers should expect a small amount of variation – this is part of the magic, and one of the ways you can be guaranteed a hand-made product.
