With the proliferation of online companies turning uploaded images into machine-printed digital canvases, the founders of DocoArt.com decided to do something refreshingly low-tech. Instead of churning out digital prints of customers’ most treasured photos, they handed the images off to commissioned artists and asked them to hand paint custom oil paintings. By working from uploaded photos, DocoArt’s artists continue immortalizing family members, pets, and life-changing moments such as weddings and appeals-court victories. After customers submit their images, the artists go to work, hand painting on 100% cotton canvases that retain the oils better than synthetic ones. DocoArt’s team then emails buyers a digital draft of their custom portrait for either approval or feedback, shipping the finished painting once customers are satisfied.
DocoArt continues supporting its commissioned artists by also putting them to work on gallery paintings, which include reproductions of famous works, as well as original modern images and landscapes. This helps DocoArt not only support established artists but also assist the development of emerging artists.
