Art on your phone

Our phones deserve a beautiful case. Yes, these little objects that invaded our life and changed our way of doing things in the last 10 years are not only useful but also a fantastic place to display art. I’m very happy to collaborate now with Case Station, a company from the UK that prints chic and great quality phone cases.

Examples of commissioned works

Often people have asked me to make a special art piece as a gift for friends or a meaningful image to decorate a wall in their house. I love to do this! It’s very special to be able to translate in an image the story of a family, the love of a couple that is getting married, the birth of a little boy, the travels of an explorer, etc.
Here some examples of commissioned artworks:
Tandem

This is a commissioned painting for a wedding. She is from Catalunya, He is from Italy, they meet in Wales and their love travels to Barcelona, Mexico, and cycles around Europe, growing surrounded by friends who also enjoy exciting expeditions in nature. A tandem. Two sets of pedals and two saddles. Moving in balance and harmony. 65 x 80 cm. Watercolor and ink on canvas. 2014

volver a casa LOW

This was a commissioned drawing. I created it based on an idea the client wanted to express: the experience of “coming back home”, or the feeling of being home inside one’s body and mind, accepting oneself at the full potential we have. Clarity and freedom coming from the universe, as a reflection of the balance in the center of ourselves. The drawing is 21 x 29.7 cm (8.2 x 11.6 inches) I used Ink on cotton paper

Vida para los que saben soñar Tintas y acuarela sobre papel de algodón. 80 x 50 cm Un dibujo comisionado por Francisco Gallegos Luna. 2012

“Vida para los que saben soñar”
Ink and watercolor on cotton paper. 80 x 50 cm

Normally the process for a commissioned artwork occur like this:

1) The collector contact me and describe the idea of what he/she wants. We work together to agree on: medium, price, dimensions, subject matter, color scheme and a timeline for completing the work (typically 2-4 weeks).

2) Prior to beginning the work, I ask 50% of payment from the collector so that I can know the collector is serious.

3) I start working and I send images showing the work in-progress, which the collector reviews and approves.

4) Once the work has been completed, the collector approves the final image.

5) Then I ask the final payment, plus the cost of shipping from the collector. I take a lot of care wrapping properly the artwork, so that it travels safely to the address of the collector. If the collector is Barcelona or passes by here, we meet personally to give it by hand.

I have worked on many commissions, and it’s a great to enable collectors and interior designers to acquire works they love. With good communication on all sides the process is smooth and beneficial for both, the collector and myself.
