HOW IT WORKS
STEP 1: SELECT YOUR ARTIST
Art Unified artists Stephanie Jory and Joseph Lee are available for portrait commissions. Street artists Kelcey Fisher (KFISH), Paige Smith (A Common Name) and Dan Monteavaro (Moncho 1929) are available for mural and installation projects. All other Art Unified artists are available for commissioned pieces in their particular style.
STEP 2: SUBMIT A COMMISSION REQUEST
Submit your commission request to the Art Unified team, who will connect you with the artists. From there, you and the artist will work together to develop an idea for the commission subject.
STEP 3: WORK WITH THE ARTIST
Once you and the artist have developed your idea, a photograph will be staged or designed for the artist's reference purposes. After the image is created, you and the artist will communicate to agree upon the image as a reference image.
STEP 4: PAYMENT
Submit half of the payment at the start, and the other half upon completion of your commission piece.

Los Angeles-based artist Kelcey Fisher (KFISH) bridges the gap between studio and street art, creating a new species through hybridization. Fisher sets figures afloat in a sea of color and contrast, juxtaposing the steady warmth of an icon with the vibrations of a multicolored backdrop. He is a consummate master of creating quiet chaos in the mind of the viewer, yet gifts them with the calm of intelligent aesthetics. Above all, his work evokes his personal qualities; artistic deft, an appreciation for a wide spectrum of lifestyles, and an eternal sense of warmth. Learn more about Fisher at his Artist Page.
Paige Smith (A Common Name) is a visual artist who lives and works in Los Angeles, CA. She is most notable for creating “Urban Geode,” a street art series of sculptures that resemble geodes, made entirely of paper and resin casts. Always interested in geology, Smith started to notice the nooks and crannies in the sides of buildings, walls, and abandoned phone booths within her community of the Historical Arts District (in Los Angeles). Seeing this as an opportunity to create, Smith took street-art to a whole new level. Each “geode” is puzzled together out of individual polyhedra that are in turn made of hand folded die-cut paper or roto-cast resin. The finished pieces seem to explode out of walls, frames, and cracks in the city. Each installation is a hidden treasure waiting to be discovered as people go about their daily routine. Her work has a palpable sense of “Magical Realism” that says, “Take a look around, notice the small things. Find wonder and beauty in the mundane and forgotten.” Learn more about Smith at her Artist Page or visit our blog to read about Smith in Art Unified's 'Inside the Artist's Studio' series.
Incorporating images from mass media and comic book imagery, Dan Monteavaro (Moncho 1929) plays with the familiarity of those images and the comfort that comes when looking at pixel-based art. The beauty to Monteavaro’s work is more in the missing portions, therein lies a communication between artist and material that then resonates with the viewer. In this way the works begin a dialogue with the viewer that begins to unravel. Originally born and raised in New York City, Monteavaro has lived and worked in London, Italy, Korea and Los Angeles. Through all these transitions, modern media and the world of urban art have exerted a powerful influence on him. His work has appeared in numerous galleries and private collections. His current works can be seen at an upcoming solo exhibition at Soho House Los Angeles, as well as being currently shown in Los Angeles at Bruce Lurie Gallery, LabArt, Wallspace, and in New York at Cheryl Hazan Contemporary Art. Learn more about Monteavaro at his Artist Page or visit our blog to read about Monteavaro in Art Unified's 'Inside the Artist's Studio' series.
