Chris O’Hara — the Gift of Art  

Chris O’Hara is an Irish artist based in Ratoath, Co Meath and is well known for painting on large canvases, and for his unique use of ground coffee beans. Chris works with interior designers and partners with various showrooms and exhibitors in Ireland and abroad.

Living spaces have become more minimalistic with neutral colours and clients are generally adding large colourful abstract paintings to brighten up their spaces. Some well-known customers such as Vogue Williams and Pippa O Connor are following this trend and have both recently furnished their new homes with commissioned pieces from Chris.

Are you ever stuck for ideas on what to get people for wedding gifts, anniversary gifts, house warming gifts? Whether it’s your friend getting married, your cousin’s big birthday or a sibling buying their first home, it is important to buy a special gift for their big day. For these life events you cannot go wrong with the gift of art .

In order to make sure you get something really valuable and elegant, it is important to think about the personal taste of the recipient. At the same time, think about the décor of the home or space where the painting will hang. This pre-analysis will help you narrow down your choices with ease. 

The next big thing to consider while presenting art as a gift for an occasion is the colour contrast and rich patterns. They must form a perfect combination with the home décor of the recipient.

There is no doubt that giving art as a gift for a wedding or important event is unique and timeless, something that will be treasured forever. To make it easier still Chris provides gift vouchers and the recipient can avail of the complementary call-out service that includes consultation, choosing the piece, tweaking the piece/s to individual tastes, delivery and hanging of the painting. All paintings come with a certificate of authenticity.

Be different … offer the gift of art.
