Confessions from the YH Team

Confessions from the YH Team

Confession!  We here at Yellow Hibiscus Gallery have been wrestling with the challenge of translating the feeling of connecting with a painting in real life to connecting with one in virtual reality.  Yes, we understand that nothing beats real life, but our whole business model is premised on the theory that we can simulate that lovely feeling one gets when one falls in love with a painting. And, yes, we believe that at this point in time, you, our customers are so comfortable with making purchases online that you will be willing to join us on this journey as a we seek to disrupt the art market.  Now, all this highfalutin talk sounds good, but maybe, all you want to know is how good our pieces will look on your walls.  Well, you are in luck.  If you follow us on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook or Pinterest, you may have a preview to our answer.  

We've created mock ups of what our pieces would look like in your home.  [Disclaimer here, we've previously shared these mock ups with our social media followers.  We got a lot of positive feedback and so on this #tbt, we thought we'd share them again.]   

We hope you enjoy them!  And as you discover pieces you like, do us a favor, admire then collect them! ?

ARTIST SPOTLIGHT:  LAYES HUSSAIN
ARTIST SPOTLIGHT: LAYES HUSSAIN

". . .  The truth is, art chose me.  I mean, I think art made me, because without art I don’t know what I’d be doing or what career I’d be in.  Pretty much as a kid, I’d doodle but whenever I saw other people paint I’d be fascinated.  I would say that deep down inside, seeing other artist paint sparked a fire inside of me.  Also, in my late twenties, I didn’t want to live my life doing the typical thing of going, out, hanging out, and working.  I wanted to be productive.  I want 30-40 years from now, if a friend bumps into me and asks what have you accomplished in the last 20 years, I want to say something like I have twenty thousand people who own my artwork.  . . . ."
