Over the Christmas holiday I had a clients contact me and ask if I had any Art Prints relevant for Children, and it got me thinking about investing in Art for Kids.
WHAT TO CONSIDER WHEN INVESTING IN ART FOR CHILDREN…
IS IT APPROPRIATE?
I think it is important to purchase art that reflects something that your child is interested in. I recently painted a Rooster for my son Alpfie, he loves Roosters like other kids like cats and dogs! We stayed in a bamboo house in Ubud in Bali with chickens and a Rooster in the garden when he was a baby . He has loved them ever since. He is very territorial about 'my Rooster painting mum'.
WILL IT CONTINUE TO BE RELEVANT?
Art is more than a picture hanging on your child's bedroom wall. When purchasing art for children, think beyond their current bedroom interior and choose something that stimulates their imagination but is also appealing to an adult, a work of art that your child can bring with them over the years from their first flat to their 'grown up' home. It is wonderful to invest in something that your son or daughter can cherish as an adult, creating a lasting memory of childhood.

'Rooster 'was inspired by the wild Rooster or Junglefowl found widely in Bali and even still found in the kampong or Jungle patches of Singapore. Since antiquity the rooster has been, and still is, a sacred animal in some cultures and deeply embedded within various religious belief systems and religious worship. In Southeast Asia, as understandings and interpretations of indigenous beliefs of the veneration of spirits and deities remain strong. Animist beliefs extend to the rooster and the cockfight, ”a popular form of fertility worship among almost all Southeast Asians.
