Additional Artist and Oso Art Gallery Responsibilities
Art at Home – Buying Original Artwork for your Home is the ideal way to enhance and compliment your existing decor, and provide a focal point for your room. Oso Art Gallery - Costa Rica has a wide range of art and Sculptures in a variety of categories to enhance your home.
Well chosen, original contemporary home art compliments your existing decor. At a time when many people are buying mass-produced prints, original artwork from Costa Rica does not need to be expensive. We have a range of artwork so that you can obtain Artwork at a cost within your budget - and it will be original. Most of our artists are happy to undertake commissions, so your piece can be truly original, inspired by you.
We maintain high standards across the work we exhibit, and being an online art gallery, we can exhibit a much larger range of work than a physical gallery. Our 14 day money back guarantee insures that you are happy with your choice. Send us a photo of your proposed location and we can "Photoshop" your Art of choice into your location which allows you to get a feel for how the art might look in your proposed environment - before you buy.
We know that original paintings are an excellent way to decorate your space, but additional options are also available with our Oso Online Art Gallery. We have a range of original sculpture, ceramic art, glass art and wooden pieces (including 1-of-a-kind Furniture) in both traditional and contemporary styles. When thinking about buying art for your home, it is worth thinking about these options, as they can provide unique focal points in a room.
When looking for original contemporary art, existing room colors, mood, and the space that you have available are the most important factors to consider. Is the room contemporary or does it have a more traditional feel? Would a large, statement artwork be appropriate, or a series of smaller pieces? When choosing sculpture it is useful to consider which material you think would work best in your home. For example, hand carved stone, bronze, or unique Costa Rican Wood?
You may also wish to consider the lighting in the room. A properly lit piece can dramatically change the appearance of art.
If you are looking to purchase more than one piece, it can be worth thinking about whether you would prefer two distinct pieces, or whether you would like to start a collection of works by one particular artist, as we have found this to be a popular option. Again, the willingness of our artists to undertake commissions can be helpful in creating the perfect piece that is just right for you.
Another benefit of original art at home is, it can be a great investment. As well as enhancing your decor, art is likely to increase in value over time, and at a point when many investments are producing poor returns, purchasing original art provides an opportunity for growth.
Office Art – Choosing the right office art is important and Oso Art Gallery - Costa Rica can help. Original contemporary art can enhance any interior, and can be particularly useful in creating a good atmosphere at work. We spend much of our time in the workplace, and a welcoming and stimulating interior can lift moods, encourage motivation, and provide a welcoming environment for people visiting your place of work.
In choosing office art, many lean towards abstract artworks, as it can be seen as neutral. If the right piece is chosen it does not offend and is not too distracting. The style of art chosen will can reflect each company. Still life or floral art may be welcome in environments such as a café or hotel but would perhaps be less suitable in a marble corporate reception area. It can also be a good idea to give consistency by purchasing a similar color, theme or works by the same artist.
Oso Art Gallery Costa Rica - Online, can help with your decision. We are happy to advise on suitable artwork for your environment, whether it be a good focal point or a statement piece for a large room or lobby. Most of our artists are happy to undertake commissions and would be able to create a piece specifically for your space.
We are also different in that we can offer not just original paintings, but also sculpture, glass pieces, photography, prints and unique wooden art furniture.
Original sculpture or Furniture can be fantastic office art for an entrance or lobby. Large scale pieces add character and beauty to any environment, creating a talking point, or simply enhancing your existing interior décor. This is also true with glass art. Large, more dramatic works, or smaller pieces can add a finishing touch and compliment your other chosen artwork.
We can be contacted with any questions regarding office art through our "Info Request Button and its related Request Form".
