Art can help you connect with clients
Paintings are excellent conversation starters. A painting is also a great non-verbal communication tool which also reflects corporate ideologies, beliefs, values, etc. It is great way of self expression. Art help you form a positive first impression. A good painting in the reception area can influence the mindset of the visiting client, generate better emotional responses, alter mood and make the client comfortable.
Buying paintings supports both the local gallery and the artist. Full-time artists dedicate their entire lives and career to art and they work very hard to bring out their best talent on canvas. Similarly art galleries promote these artist’s and their work to their best capacity. By buying paintings from galleries you are encouraging both galleries and the artist and in some way also contributing to the promotion of India Art.
General Placement Options:
Reception forms the beginning point and from there paintings can be displayed in your conference room, personal cabins, general staff area and along the office lobbies.
Since an office is sort of a public place too it is advised to go neutral on the theme. So basically abstract paintings, landscape paintings, city-themed urban paintings are some options you can explore. Like for example if you have an office in Mumbai – paintings on Mumbai theme work really well. Even under the abstract category, you can mix it up by placing some abstract canvas paintings and some abstract paper paintings to break the medium monotony.
