Portrait Commissions, bespoke mosaic art
Ed Chapman has created a number of unique mosaics, commissioned by private art collectors from around the world.
The artist has carried out work for royal families, sports stars and politician. He assures complete discretion if requested.
He has undertaken art commissions for private clients and corporations. Their requests have been varied with the resulting mosaics being made from paper, vitreous glass or thousands of penny coins as well as Edís signature medium of ceramic tile mosaics.
Rock God Lemmy from Motorhead has a mosaic portrait created by Ed in his Hollywood home, which he loves.
Ed says: "I love hearing ideas for bespoke commissions and the client really has carte blanche so let your imagination run wild. It is exciting to be working on a unique piece of mosaic work for someoneís home or office.
"By all means get in touch whatever the idea for a mosaic commission, big or small. I am always happy to consider an art commission to create mosaics on any subject, family members, famous people, wildlife, pets, architecture, abstract, even a self portrait - absolutely anything really.
"When an art commission goes ahead, I will discuss every aspect of the mosaic before starting work, colours, composition, size and not least the material you want the mosaic made from, I am mindful of the bespoke nature of a commissioned mosaic and know it may be a present for a friend or loved one therefore always ensure the clientís every artistic desire is met."
All ceramic mosaic worksare waterproof and the mosaics are made using the finest quality ceramic tile made in the Potteries. Ed is able to provide his expert advice on any technical or care questions. All Ed's mosaics are by their nature originals and unique. He may on occasion make one or more mosaic of the same image, in the same or different materials - if it's especially striking.
Portrait commissions take about four weeks to make. If you have an idea for an art commission please contact Ed.
