Commissions

The Art Hound are delighted to offer commissioned by work by a select group of our contemporary artists - everything from pet portraits to custom neon. Want to work with us for something personalised? Get in touch!

NEON COMMISSIONS

 

Custom Neons are  available through us and Illuminati Neon. There's one rule though - it's gotta be something cool! Get in touch with your music and pop culture ideas.

URBAN ART COMMISSIONS

We work closely with a small but select crew of up and coming urban artists. From printmaking commissioned series to street art and paste ups, our urban team of Channel 138, Will Wright and Alan Rogerson are able to work to the most imaginative briefs - inside and out. Let us know your project and we'll match you with the right artist. Above, we organised a series of works for the rooms of the awesome Duxford Lodge Hotel by the underground female print making collective Channel 138. Armed with the knowledge that Churchill stayed  in the building during WW2, Channel 138 created a series of work inspired by both the man and anti-war messages.

 

Custom Dog Portraits by Basia Lautman

The Art Hound team are delighted to work with Contemporary artist Basia Lautman on offering custom dog portraits of your beloved pooch. Her work and dog portraits have been exhibited many times at the Royal Academy of Art, with editions of her work selling out. 

Your unique portrait is totally bespoke, and available as either an original pastel drawing or as an original drypoint etching with hand painted chine-colle as part of an edition. This highly technical and labour intensive process of print making is rarely used for custom work.

 

The Process

Basia works from a selection of photographs, not just one, and your information about your dog's  habits to insure she captures the unique personality of each dog. Also discussed is any colours or requests you have about the piece.

Basia will then create several sketches and ideas before the finished work. 

Pastels

Unique original pastel drawing. You can request your dog to be drawn in any environment from a funky patterned background to a reference photo of their favourite place to go walkies!

A4 size (21cm x 29cm ) - £240

A3 size (29cm x 42cm ) - £290

 

Drypoint Etching with Chine - Colle

Drawn directly onto the plate, these drypoint etchings retain all the qualities of a drawing in a print, coloured with Chine-Colle, a of Chinese style paper which is hand painted and used as a background for the drypoint etching. This means the work is part painting, part print - each one totally unique.

Small/Medium Drypoint Etching - £650

Large Drypoint Etching - £950

Please note sizes are dependent on dog/ideas and works will be part of an edition. Check
