Sam Siegel Paintings
One of Vancouver’s boutique art galleries since 2016, Sams Original Art is different for a number of reasons. For one thing, they are a small, family-run store that features the paintings of only one artist... Sam Siegel. His art springs naturally, Sam say, from his love of hiking and camping in the region’s mountain wilderness. When you visit his gallery in Kitsilano (or online at samsoriginalart.com), you’ll see that his style incorporates the rich blues, greens and yellows of B.C.’s spectacular coastal vistas. And if you’re a fan of the Group of Seven, his art may remind you of painters like Emily Carr and Lawren Harris. Sam also cites Ross Penhall as one of his ‘contemporary’ favourites. The abstract landscapes Sam paints are especially popular among local art-lovers, because, as one customer remarked, “it feels recognizable and comfortable… it feels like home.”
Very Affordable Art
Another pleasant surprise about Sams Original Art is their prices. When you visit the gallery, you’ll discover why they like to say, “we make collectible, original art accessible to everyone” – their prices are very affordable! Sam’s father and uncle run the gallery, and you’ll find that they make your buying experience easy and enjoyable. With the lower overhead of a family-run business, they pass the savings on directly to you. And don't worry about delivery - the shipping is 100% free!
Premium ‘ready to hang’ Canvas Prints
Some buyers, interior designers, for instance, may be looking for art to complement the decor of a room, or add a “finished” look to a particular space. For those buyers, you can choose any Sam Siegel painting in a format called ‘giclée’. Giclée prints are digital ‘copies’ of the original artwork. Not all giclée prints are created equal, though. Most stores sell lower-quality, cheap facsimiles. But at Sams Original Art, their giclée prints are made using state-of-the-art, ultra-high-quality flatbed scanners and high-res printers.
I was truly amazed to see that the giclée canvases were virtually indistinguishable from Sam’s original paintings. Best of all, their beautiful giclée prints cost a fraction of the price of Sam’s originals. And just like the original paintings, the canvases are 100 per cent premium cotton, mounted on reinforced solid wood backing. All of their paintings come with high-quality hardware, and are ‘ready to hang.’ Also very important… Sam uses only museum-quality, archival standard pigments, so your painting will last a lifetime.
Sams Original Art also ensures the value of your purchase by limiting their giclée prints to a maximum edition of only 30 signed copies. And by the way, you can choose any giclée painting in virtually whatever size you may need for your particular wall-space (they can be up to 3 times the size of the original painting)!
B.C. Inspired Art
As attested by the customer quotes above, if you’re someone who collects art as an investment, you won’t be disappointed. I was immediately taken aback by the exquisite beauty of the colours in some of the paintings on display. In particular, they have a line called the Whistler Series, which includes Howe Sound and Britannia Beach, that really seems to capture the essence of BC’s coastal areas.
Free superimposing service
One other terrific convenience they provide is their free ‘superimposing service’, which helps their customers 'see' the painting in their home or office, before they buy it. Here’s how it works: You simply email a picture of your wall-space to firstname.lastname@example.org (include the dimensions of your sofa, or coffee table, for instance, for a reference). Sam will email back a few paintings superimposed on your wall space, so you can see just how it will look. No more trying to imagine how your painting will look in your home or office. You can see how it will look before your buy it! Yes, that’s right… ‘free feels real good’!
And, by the way, Sam enjoys doing commissioned work, too. If you like his style, and have something special in mind, he’d love to paint it for you!
