Artistic Consulting

Our Consulting Service is available for Artists, Institutions, Academies, Collectors, Curators or Private Companies.

Provided by Leonel da Costa, it started by the understanding that
Artists do not have a Consulting Service tailored for them.
When it comes to the better understanding of materials chemistry, and technical details to create art work that will stand the test of time, that knowledge must come from a certified source.

A painting final result is more connected to the way it was constructed then we tend to realize. It starts with the surface preparation and it goes all the way to the appliance of varnishes. 

Together with us, Artists can learn and trace a work plan to better achieve the desired final effects.

Academies, Institutions, Collectors, Curators and Private Companies can find in our service support and tuition to their members or students as well as the warranty of a specialized work in maintaining, preserving, repairing or investigating painting from the collections.

This service can be provided online or on site according to needs.
Book by the hour, or find a fee plan that suites you.
