What is Commissioned Art?

Let’s say you are on the hunt for a piece of art that will fit perfectly in a certain space. Not just from a size perspective but also the material and message. You can certainly search for a piece that will work but with such a specific set of criteria, your best bet may be to commission a site specific work of art.

Many artists, including the ones represented by 3 Sixty Art, are open to working with you on a custom piece. Don’t get me wrong, the artist will of course utilize his artistic style and vision (after all, that’s why you chose them)but generally they are willing to work with you on the size, material and messaging of the piece. Have a general idea but still need some guidance? You can send some photos of the area or even invite the artist out to the site so they can get a better feel for what would work best and the ideal positioning of the piece as well.

Commissioned art is not always the way to go but if chosen, the process allows an individual to really connect because they are involved in the creation of that piece. Commissioned pieces make for great stories and allow an individual to purchase the perfect piece for their home or office.
