Pixelist’s artists turn your favorite photos into handmade, photorealistc oil paintings!
“Most of our orders are given as gifts,” says Pixelist cofounder Will Freeman. “From wedding anniversaries to christenings, and everything in between, our customers want to give a gift that is both meaningful and unique. In fact, ‘thoughtful’ is the word most people say they hear when they gift one of our paintings.” Pixelist paintings start at $149 for a 12X12 inch painting. The painting of the dog from the video below is 20X20 inches, which goes for $309 on their website. The prices are very reasonable and they offer free shipping worldwide.
Pixelist’s gallery is really fun to check out. We had to look up “photorealism” to make sure this kind of painting was even possible! They’ve got examples of family portraits, pet portraits, landscapes, cityscapes and some funny random paintings mixed as well. The level of detail is nothing short of extraordinary. The ordering process is simple and easy to navigate. Pixelist suggests closeups, as they tend to work best as photorealistic paintings because it’s easier for the artists to really capture all the detail. They also let you preview your finished painting by email so that adjustments or touchups can be made if necessary. This is really a great feature to have for a custom made product.
