Miami, FL (PRWEB) August 17, 2005
Successful art firm Canvas Artists has recently launched a new website -- http://www.canvasartists.com -- offering art lovers the chance to own unique, custom-made artwork at affordable prices. Canvas Artists was established in 1997. Offering custom art via mail order has proved so successful that the company has decided to launch an online service.
Canvas Artists is a network of over 120 talented artists from all over the world. Each is a highly skilled and passionate creative professional. All customers have to do is send in a photo -- painters and drawers then work hard to turn it into a lovingly crafted drawing, watercolor or oil painting. Any photo will do -- Canvas Artists can merge elements of two or more photos into a single painting, or a drawing in pencil, pastel or charcoal. Because each piece of work that Canvas Artists does is hand painted or hand drawn by a talented human being, it's even possible to 'improve' photos or change aspects of subjects' clothing or appearance.
When an artist has finished a painting or drawing a proof is put online for the customer to view. Once the customer is satisfied, their artwork is shipped to them Â worldwide delivery is available.
The response has already been enormous, with very many satisfied customers. "This is the best present my husband has ever given me," says Brenda Orellana of Virginia Beach, VA. "I will cherish it forever." Many other customers have been equally satisfied.
Many of Canvas Artists' customers have chosen to have a special event memorialized as a handcrafted masterpiece. Producing paintings, pencil sketches and drawings from photos of weddings, birthdays and anniversaries is a major part of Canvas Artists' work.
Luis Veras, Canvas Artists' CEO, puts the companyÂs success down to the personal touch: "We live in a photographic age," he says, "and fewer and fewer people routinely own works of art. But the fact is that a genuine work of art, crafted by hand, has enormous power to enrich our lives."
A genuine painting or drawing adds much more to a room than a print or imitation, Veras adds. "Many photographic shops offer so-called 'canvas prints' -- photos that have been digitally manipulated to look like a painting. But the effect isn't the same -- these imitations don't have the richness of texture of a genuine painting. We're not into the business of digital imaging Â our artists have spent years mastering the ancient skills that allow them to produce stunning artworks."
