The Royal Wedding X Australian TV

The Royal Wedding X Australian TV

In celebration of the Royal wedding, Nobilified teamed up with "The Living Room", an Australian TV show to let Meaghan know about the Royal tradition of sitting down for a hand painted oil portrait of herself.  Our paintings were declared to be "Hot" instead of "Not". Watch the paintings being unveiled to the hosts here!

Treat Yourself Royally! Part Three: Royal Tots - Commission hand painted portrait of your children

Treat Yourself Royally! Part Three: Royal Tots - Commission hand painted portrait of your children

The tiniest player in the current feast of royal wedding pageantry is little Louis Arthur Charles, who has been big news since his name was bestowed on him only a few days ago and who is now the subject of multiple viral stories already. (One of the funniest has since the Harry Potter fansite Pottermore lay claim to him as being "named after" a trio of iconic Weasleys from the universe of the Harry Potter novels.) Little Louis is also a timely reminder of a fine tradition of childrens' royal portraiture which is a vital part of the custom painting galleries of Nobilified. Here, we look at a few favourites.

Treat Yourself Royally!

Treat Yourself Royally!

The occasion of a Royal wedding brings to mind a cultural treasure-trove of royal romance tales. It's a topic that brings together power, pageantry and the most intimate kind of human drama all in one package; a subject that forms the core of a thousand fairy tales and not a few real-life dramas, too. In advance of the upcoming royal wedding, we take a tour through some of the best love stories royals have given rise to on screens both big and small. You'll often find these stories' protagonists in our portrait gallery, too, and excellent subjects for our unique custom paintings.

Treat Yourself Royally!

The British royals may be the biggest proof of our ongoing cultural love affair with royalty, but they're far from the only example. Another show is lighting up the Netflix airwaves today – Medici: Masters of Florence – following the fortunes of a great banking family that eventually became a royal family with ducal titles. The first Medici Duke, one of the popular faces in our photo-to-painting portrait gallery, was Alessandro de'Medici.

A Portrait of a Thinker

A Portrait of a Thinker

With graduation season almost upon us, it's a time to contemplate some artwork that brings to mind the philosopher and the scholar in us all. Today we go by way of a famous sculpture by Rodin called the Thinker, and talk about its connection to the unique pictures-to-painting work of Nobilified.

The Hour of the Hammer is upon us!

The Hour of the Hammer is upon us!

The adage "everything old is new again" has never been truer than in the internet age. It's one of the facts that makes the Nobilified vision possible, but every once in a while we have a fresh reminder of just how true it is, and of just how many forms that truth can take. Today's reminder is a famous French painter whose career spanned the end of the Bourbon monarchy and the rise of the French Revolution long before we were creating oil paintings from photos.

The timeless art of gift-giving

I'd like to share with you an example of what might well qualify as an early precursor of the Nobilified vision. It's a truly great example, still relevant today, of how the art of turning photos into oil paintings can make for a memorable gift.
