Capturing a memory of a beloved vacation or event is a priceless expression, especially in difficult pandemic times. With that in mind, Luke Walwyn Studio is offering the opportunity to bring your cherished memories to life with bespoke personalised digital art.
My digital illustration style -
developed several years ago through image manipulation for a travel magazine, takes a collection of photographs as the starting point and renders these close to a 2-dimensional screen printed aesthetic. This gives me the freedom to create through the process of taking away (as in clay sculpture) as opposed to adding, and allows the final image to say more with less.
Below are some of the journeys captured so far:
"I ordered a bespoke piece of digital art [on canvas] for that special someone who is impossible to buy for! Absolutely thrilled with the results and the reaction when it was opened.
Had a great conversation with Luke so he knew what I was wanting to capture in the picture. The result, well, blooming amazing!!! So thrilled, even more so as who knows when we’ll be able to go abroad again. Highly recommended."

"The world had a tough 2020, a year of disappointment, uncertainty and cancelled plans. We were looking forward to a family holiday in Australia and ended up in Wales for a week. Although it was not as we planned it was a great week in a fabulous location and we were together.
I was unsure what to expect as commissioning art is far outside my normal life of numbers and spreadsheets. Luke was amazing and guided me through the process so we ended up with the perfect piece of art. Given all the things we couldn't do, it was fantastic to do something new and just for me.
I get to look at it every day and to me it is a permanent reminder of looking for blue sky, happy memories and the things that really matter family and friends.
My daughter wants to add; 'Thank you Luke you're the best artist in the world.'"
Clare Latimer: Finance Director, London.
"After sending Luke a few holiday photographs of a recent family vacation, we were amazed when his bespoke fine art print arrived in the mail. The palette and composition that Luke created were absolutely wonderful.
We returned from our vacation with fond memories of our family trip to Yosemite, now we have an artistic bespoke interpretation of that trip that will hang in our home forever... Luke’s artwork is absolutely beautiful. If I could give him a 6 out of 5 star review I would.
If you’re thinking about buying someone a special present, rekindling your passion for your loved ones with a unique gift, and/or cherishing your special memories for a lifetime, don’t hesitate to reach out to him! Not only is he one of the most creative people I’ve ever met, he is delightful to work with! A true gem!"

"I was fortunate to receive one of these high quality prints as a gift. The design I was given reflected travel with the mind to NYC which will look amazing in my New York themed spare room. The graphics are really sharp and the colours are great.
Luke Walwyn's prints make an excellent gift and will brighten up any wall."

COMMISSIONING BESPOKE ART
Commissioning a bespoke personalised piece of art through Luke Walwyn Studio is truly buying into a lifestyle of modern luxury, and will make a treasured memory or a valuable gift. What's more, it allows you to travel in the mind.
It starts with a conversation about the destination which captures your imagination, and your very own photographs which best represent its charm. This is then re-imagined into a contemporary travel portrait with personality.
The finished artwork is fine art printed to a 30x40cm image, and can be upgraded to 40x60cm, 60x80cm or a 56x66cm canvas for a greater visual impact.
All our fine art prints are expertly reproduced on a 285gsm slightly textured, 100% cotton rag art paper using the latest 12-colour wide-format giclée printing technology. The print finish is of astounding quality, surpassing what a digital screen can convey, and offers 100+ year colour guarantee. The prints are supplied with a white border and unframed (unless you state otherwise).
Our canvases are professionally produced using a 12-colour giclée fine art printing process, onto museum quality 410gsm Hahnemühle Monet canvas in 100% cotton. Each is then expertly stretched over a 38mm artist stretcher bar milled from the finest quality European kilndried knotless pine, and hand finished by one of the UK’s most experienced canvas framing teams.
All printed products are digitally signed by Luke Walwyn the artist.
