MSG artist Marc Burckhardt walks us through his process in creating a commissioned artwork for a client:

“The process of commissioned works has been a natural one for me, and one I find exciting. My collectors are typically familiar with my work and the language of characters within it. When possible, I like to view the space the work will live in, and meet with the collector to discuss specific works they’ve responded to in order to get a sense of the relationship they hope to have with the commissioned art. I then develop my concepts and typically provide two to three alternatives the client can choose from. Large pieces like this one can take several months, during which time I’ll send ‘in progress’ images if they are requested.”

Burckhardt recently completed “Scheideweg,” a large-scale private commission of acrylic and oil on wood panel, measuring 96″ x 48″.
