Hot off the Easels
All our latest art can be seen on our “Hot off the Easels” page! Here, you can view a great range of all the latest paintings by ART ST Artists. We have lots of new landscapes, seascapes, animal art, still lifes, flower paintings, abstract art, cityscapes and contemporary art.
Keep an eye on our "View Art Requests" page to see the Art Requests as they are submitted. I just love seeing the artists interpretations of these requests.
An Art Request is a fantastic way to commission a special painting where you nominate the subject, size (min 80cm) and how much you wish to pay. Multiple artists participate so you have a choice of artwork!
It is a fun exercise for our artists to paint something they may not have thought of painting previously and to try new methods and subjects without the pressure of a direct commission. Paintings not purchased by the Requester are moved into the gallery and made available for general sale.
If you would like to learn more or request some art, simply complete the form which can be found on our Art Request page. The details will be distributed to all our Artists and hopefully you will have a few artworks from which to choose!
