Art as a Gift
We are so lucky to live in such a prosperous country as Australia and have everything we need and even more. However, when people already have everything making a unique and memorable present could be very challenging. This is why giving an original artwork as a gift could be a great idea.
Few gifts could be more special than an artwork. Artwork is a perfect for any occasion and any person you just need to choose it carefully.
“Art makes a great gift because it is so personal, from the creation of the work itself to choosing a particular piece for a friend. Receiving something so unique will without a doubt make the recipient feel very special. And since art lasts a lifetime, you’ll always share that connection.”
Jessica McQueen, Assistant Curator at Saatchi Art
When choosing an artwork think about that person - what they like, what style they prefer, how their home is decorated, what their life story and what passions they have, what colors they wear. You might think about your common past and memories you share with that person. When choosing an artwork as a gift you create a story behind the artwork - what your thoughts and intentions were, what it represents, what ideas you find behind it. You can do some research and ask about the artist, style, mediums used, theme of the artwork you have chosen and then all this knowledge will come along with the artwork to its new owner.
You do not have to buy large pieces as smaller works are not just more affordable but they also will be easier to find a place for in their new home. After all, art is not judged by its size.
