ArtInsights Has Gifts for all your Disney, Marvel, Warner Bros., Star Wars, and DC fans!

It’s the holidays. Gifts are needed, stat! Not only does ArtInsights have a brand-new, easy to navigate, purchase-friendly site, we also have a lot of great images in stock, ready to ship, or ready to be wrapped and carried out.  Why is this an awesome thing?  There comes a time when we all need new, exciting, surprising gifts for our loved one.  What’s a person to do?  Come to ArtInsights!  Almost everyone loves movies, or cartoons, or superheroes, or all of the above! If you come home with the art actually created by the folks who make these essentials of pop culture, who work at the studios, make the posters, make the cartoons, you will be most valuable player of the holiday!! NO, buying a great gift isn’t the way to someone’s heart, but as Marilyn Monroe would say, “Gee! Doesn’t it help?” It shows you care enough to go out and find something super special that no one else would even think of.

Of course, if you buy at ArtInsights and it isn’t well received (a rare occurrence), you can always bring it back and trade it for something else!

We have art in all price ranges, from $50 to $98,000. (Want to buy an original by John Alvin, created in the process of making the Beauty and the Beast movie poster?)

Do come by and see what we have in our gallery in Reston Town Center, or check out the gift guide online.  It’s easy to buy and we’ll ship it right out to you!

Some of the art we have available:

Toy Story art by Andrea Alvin, The Avengers art, Guardians of the Galaxy art, Wonder Woman art, and Doctor Strange art by Alex Ross, sold out C3PO and R2D2 art by Steve Thomas, Frozen concept art as well as Frozen art by Amy Mebberson, production art from Fantasia, Batman and Wonder Woman art by Jim Lee, vintage Hanna Barbera art from The Flintstones, art from Harry Potter by production designer Stuart Craig, Lilo and Stitch, Beauty and the Beast, and Cinderella art by Michelle St. Laurent, Tim Rogerson, and Rob Kaz, and so so much more!  Click here to see a bunch of options, or contact us directly to request a specific film or character.  Don’t forget we also have new contemporary art from the Ten x Ten x Ten and Art Outsiders projects by genius pop artist extraordinaire Tennessee Loveless!

Happy Holidays from ArtInsights!

ArtInsights Holiday Gift Guide for Film, Animation, and Contemporary Art: We have that special art for your loved one!

The truth is, it’s very hard to get something surprising, special, and unusual enough to be remembered far beyond the holidays.  We’ve always been so happy that ArtInsights, and film, animation, and contemporary art, is one way to make the season brighter.  It isn’t just about buying something, is it? If you’re going to offer a gift, It’s knowing those you love well enough, spending the time, being inventive, and really expressing appreciation about them being in your life.  That’s what takes a holiday to an even more special place.  WE’VE GOT YOU COVERED!

The way people’s eyes light up when they see their favorite characters represented, or the passion they recognize in a portrait of, say, David Bowie, that corresponds with what Bowie’s music has meant to them.  Those are frequent occurrences here. There’s no better time than when we hear how a gift of art from our gallery is received.

With that in mind, here are some great options for those searching for that special piece.  We have a wide variety of prices and images, so we’ll just post links here, and you can click through and see whole collections.  Also, please bear in mind that we have lots of pieces in the gallery that are even less expensive that what we show here on our website, but as we ship internationally, we tend to just keep most pieces under $100 for those calling or stopping by to find that ‘little something’…

Let’s start with this page of things we have framed and in-stock, much of which is hard to get, sold out, or special…it’s by no means exhaustive, but there are some interesting, and beautiful art options HERE.

If you are a fan of Tennessee Loveless (and who isn’t, with the release of his new book on October 31st, 10x10x10, The Art of Tennessee Loveless?!) he will be here Thanksgiving weekend for Drag Friday (happening on Black Friday, obviously!) and we will have new limited editions from The Art Outsiders, of Prince, Grace Jones, and Billie Holiday, as well as new 10x10x10 images that appear in the book. You can see all his work HERE.  (you can buy the new book from us or from Amazon.)

 

THE ART OF DISNEY:

The best art for the holidays for gifting is often from the Treasures on Canvas collection, which can be found HERE:

(we loved this new Moana piece, and quickly got it for the gallery!)

 

THE ART OF MARVEL:

Alex Ross has done some great images for Marvel this year, and the price range starts at only $75!  We have a limited number of images for that price of Captain America and Doctor Strange, as well as a few other well-priced “under the table” images–Call us.   For other Marvel art, go HERE.

 

THE ART OF HARRY POTTER:

We just had a Harry Potter event over Halloween, and were able to get some wonderful, exclusive images to sell.  We also have original art used in the making of the films.  Of course, as always, all the art is created by artists who actually worked on the films or books.  You can find all our Harry Potter art HERE.

Two images have been double signed by Dan Radcliffe and concept artist Jim Salvati, and they can be bought together for $1500, or you can buy just the Golden Snitch image for $750.  Only ten exist from this exclusive duo-signed set, and only 2 are left for sale.

 

THE ART OF DC COMICS:

Timing, timing, timing.  If it isn’t the blockbuster hit Wonder Woman, that broke all the records for female directors, it’s The Justice League.  DC is all over 2017. Maybe this is the perfect time to get some Wonder Woman or Batman art?  Or something will the whole Justice League?  A link with lots of great DC art is HERE.

If you live within driving distance, we also have some great hard-to-find framed movie posters, including The Fly, Gremlins, Aliens, and The Black Hole.  There are production cels and original drawings here, too, including an original, signed original cel of all three of The Powerpuff Girls together. Between what is in the gallery and what is on our new, (not completely perfect, but getting better all the time) website, we hope shopping with us will be fun and solve the evergreen problem of “let’s get something super cool, but what?”

I’m sure we can find some art here that will make the end of 2017 a bit more memorable and joyful for you and yours!

Best of the holiday season to you all, and hope to hear from you or see you soon!

Leslie and Michael of ArtInsights.

Star Wars, Disney, Marvel, and DC art Holiday Gift Guide: from ArtInsights!

holiday-gift-guide-disney-star-wars-harry-potter

We put together some gift guides for fans of all stripes this holiday season.  Well, actually, we just posted what really great sorts of images you can get for your favorite Star Wars, princess, or Marvel, or DC, or Harry Potter fan.  That certain movie coming out this weekend is causing quite a stir with collectors, and we are finding that PARTICULAR gift guide is actually coming quite in handy for them!  So…here is our Star Wars, Disney, Marvel, and DC art Holiday Gift Guide: from ArtInsights!

Honestly, as someone who filled my house with art before I had a stick of furniture and barely enough money to buy said furniture at Ikea, the idea of buying art as a holiday gift seems like the easiest and best idea in the world.  It doesn’t occur to a lot of other people, though, so allow me to make a case for art as a gift.  While it’s true that art is a very personal thing, that’s what makes it so special!  Even if you give a gift certificate, the idea of saying “here’s something that will make your house more welcoming, more uniquely you, that speaks to someone’s inspiration and artistic passion”…what could be better than that?  

And i’ll tell you a story from our own family…this year is the first that my family is doing a “Secret Santa”. When asked (incognito) by my secret Santa what i’d want, I told them.  I talked to an artist and asked her to create an original of a mermaid with red hair and green eyes, while keeping to the price range we all decided on, and my secret Santa is getting it for me!  There’s something beautiful about giving art to someone you love.

SO.  Here are some links to various collections to consider.  Don’t delay, though.  If you’re like me, you’ve waited long enough, and now’s the time.  Contact the gallery if you have concerns about the art arriving in time, or if you need help finding something perfect for your price range and the interests of your love one—it’s a bit daunting trying to pick something out and i’m HAPPY to help!  and, of course….

HAPPY HOLIDAYS!
