Thanks for stopping by! My name is Hank and I'm an artist living in Austin, TX with my wife Cristina and our dog, Olive.

The goal of my shop, we call ourselves an Institute, is to create original artwork at an affordable price. All original paintings are created with acrylic paint and art pen on stretched canvas; signed, numbers and dated on the back. Paintings are handmade and each one is completely original. Though I may reuse an image, I will never do so with the same background, so each image is 100% unique. Again, we hope to provide original art for close to print prices.

New images will be added regularly and I am open to suggestions and custom orders. Feel free to message me.

we call ourselves an Institute...is now offering prints! Unlike the original paintings, prints will not be limited to one image per color. If you see a print you like, but prefer a different color, just message me. Available with and without quotes. New prints will be coming over the next few weeks.

Thanks again for stopping by and come back soon!

About

Let's get together and call ourselves an Institute...

we call ourselves an Insitute...was created with the goal of providing customers an affordable option for original and unique artwork. Finding the right piece of art for a space can be a real challenge. Often times original works are unnecessarily cost prohibitive and prints may look like cheap imitations or reproductions. We strive to provide 100% original works at a cost that won't break the bank; an affordable alternative for those who don't have a fine arts museum budget.

Original paintings are part of a series. I will reuse a subject or image multiple times, but I will never use the same image with the same color background, ensuring that each customer's painting is totally unique from any other that is created. Again, affordability is only half of the equation; we also want to ensure that you are getting a great piece of original art. All paintings are on stretched canvas; signed, numbered and dated.

I also accept custom orders and requests. Though I originally began the shop by creating works of my own personal heroes, nothing makes me happier than working with someone to create their own vision. If you like the work but don't see what you want, just message me and let me know what you are looking for.

We are now offering prints and greeting cards of our more popular images. Each print is part of a 500 series, and you can completely customize it. Let me know which image you want and then choose the size, color and whether you want the image with or without the quote. Use the custom order options or reach out to me directly.

Thanks for checking us out and give your hometown a high five for us!
