Miami - With the advancements in digital photography, the antiquated days of classic portrait paintings are long gone. But for those who still enjoy artwork, one website is allowing the transition from photo to painting.
Does your family come from a long line of great men that have their portraits from the 16th, 17th, 18th and 19th centuries hanging on the wall? If so, has the tradition stopped because of the production of digital cameras?
If you still desire the long-lasting portrait painting of you or your family but don’t want to pay an exorbitant amount for a painter then consider Paint Your Life, a website that allows customers to upload their photos and have handmade portraits.
This unique feature has six different portrait painting styles: oil, watercolor, charcoal, pastel, pencil and acrylic. The website also offers photo to canvas, photo to pop art, wall art prints and oil reproductions from some of the most famous artists and their pieces (Claude Monet, Johannes Vermeer, Amedeo Modigliani).
“In we have always taken pride of the fact that the customer is involved in the creation of his own personalized canvas art, whether it is an oil portrait or a pop art from his photo. The customer communicates with the painters and graphic designers and takes an active part in creating his unique piece of art," said Assaf Kostiner, owner of, in a press release.
"In order to improve the customer experience even further, we have designed this new site and have added more artworks and features so that anyone can find the perfect gift for his loves ones or the best decoration for his own walls.”
