Why you should buy an original artwork?

There is a lot to be said about purchasing a piece of one-of-a-kind art. There’s no doubt that buying prints and posters is fun (and affordable).

Buying original work will always make you happier than buying a slick print. Handmade anything beats mass-produced any day.
Let’s face it, an “art-less” world is not where you’d want to live.

All the above should give you some cause for thought when considering introducing original art into your life.

But there’s a lot to be said for saving up for a piece of one-of-a-kind art, let me give you some reasons to consider, to pursue an original painting instead.

  • Owning original artwork is more than just decoration; it inspires us to look at the world differently. We always stress not to match, or worry about the décor. Just buy what you like and it will inspire.
  • Original artwork intrinsically feels handmade, unlike reproductions and mass-produced work.
  • Your art choices and curating your own art collection is a means of personal expression, and this reflects your individual personality.
  • Paintings are one of a kind. There’s something satisfying about having a piece of unique artwork in your home.
  • Art can inspire thought and questions in adults and children alike, engaging the viewer to think and learn about the subject. It can kick-start a worthwhile dialogue between anyone enjoying it.
  • Paintings are tactile. A print’s surface can never match the luscious textural variations of a painting. Whether done on canvas, wood or mottled watercolour paper, original paintings have a touchable quality that sets them apart.
  • Original Paintings refresh your spirit. Looking at an original painting can be a gift of daily inspiration.
  • Collecting Original Paintings. Once you have found a certain type of art or artist that you enjoy, you can start your own collection.
  • Buying a painting supports the artist directly. Painters pour their hearts into their work, and it can be difficult to make ends meet in such a labor-intensive and competitive field. Enrich your home and feel good knowing your purchase is helping to support an artist by shopping at galleries.
