Who is the artist exactly, do you know? Oil on cardboard, is that common?
Hi there, I think its Imgui 08. I can not find anything online but might have the name wrong. Traditionally paintings where made on canvas. Different mediums are used by artists: Canvas, Chipboard, Cardboard, Paper (drawings, lithos etc) Sometimes it has to do that they paint on whatever is available (or sometimes affordable for black artists) because it is on carboard, That is why its framed behind glass like any paper art. I personally don't think it deters from the artistic quality of this piece. It also has a 10 times more wow factor in real life as a picture due to the colours used and its is clearly a talented painter and not your hobbyist. Its not investment art and am not selling it as such. Its just a very pretty large wall hanger.
We are redecorating and the wife wants something else. I am quite negotiable on it so don't be shy to put in an offer, I might say yes come take it. the framing costs around r1500 due to its size.
Hope this helps.
