What is the price of a custom commissioned painting?

June 17, 2021

The price for commissioned art is typically between $0.50/sq inch and $4.00/sq inch for portrait paintings. This includes portraits of people, pets, and “portraits” of objects, such as houses and vehicles. Other paintings - like landscapes, still-life, impressionistic abstract - are in a similar price range.

Fortunately, you do not need to bring your calculator when commissioning an artist on MadeMay, which contains more than 300 professional & top-rated artists available for commission. Instead, just select from one of the four size options during the request form, and the price will be automatically calculated for you based on the artist you select and the other options you choose.

After placing an order, you will not be charged. Instead, the artist you selected will be notified to review your request for a custom artwork and get back to you within48 hours, where you can think communicate directly with one another.

Since all MadeMay artists are seasoned experts and vetted, it is unlikely you will experience issues, but if you do, you can request a cancellation or refund by contacting us.
