Artistís Mission:

The joy of painting and pursuing artistic visions is an end by itself for a motivated artist.Yet a supplementary source of joy stems from sharing these experiences and artworks with the public in large scale.Though some hurdles make this task rather difficult.On the one hand, financial rewards for artists are minimal considering the amount of time and effort extended by them to create a valuable painting, especially when a large commission (usually 50%) is paid to galleries for bringing artists and art purchasers together.On the other hand, for many art lovers even such low prices of original paintings may appear excessive if an investment value cannot be attached to the artwork in addition to its aesthetic value.In an attempt to rectify this problem and eliminate purchasersí uncertainty about the investment value of the artwork, paintings by this artist are guaranteed for lifetime to be repurchased according to the Lifetime Repurchase Policy.Tomís mission as a painter is to create valuable artwork and support its investment value by providing a guarantee to repurchase it if and when the purchaser desires.
