Gold inlaid painting by LEOPARD

Leopard gold inlaid paintings have made quite an impression on admirers for the last two years after their debut in the interior design market of Vietnam. With outstanding and distinctive features, Leopard gold paintings are increasingly drawing attention and appreciation.
Step by step each one is made according to its painting model. Leopard paintings are created through a basic process including 7 drawing layers. There are two types of Leopard gold inlaid paintings. The first one is the exclusive limited edition. It means Leopard artists base their work on their model and therefore they own the copyright certification. The prices range from 35-55 million dong (1,500 - 2,400 US dollars) depending on the size of the painting.

The second line is the production of unlimited versions. Leopard artists re-edit foreign artists' paintings, improve the effects, and add some more individual details. The prices for products from this line range from 10-30 million dong (450 - 1, 300 US dollars) depending on the size.

Unlike mass produced paintings on the market, each Leopard painting is meticulously designed from layout and color to size. Every piece has to go through a separate product development process in which the artist would consult with a team of artists and architects. To maintain the value of their work, the talented artists make sure each painting is fully explored in terms of content before being released in limited quantities to the market.

Different from popular painting techniques, Leopard's gold-plated paintings have customers impressed by the value of the material. They are painted in neutral colors, combined with carefully selected accents of gold and silver details, and then refined in color to create a perfect work.

Although the paintings reflect themes associated with Vietnamese cultural traditions, the expression is contemporary. The lines and shapes, always vivid and sharp, exude the natural beauty suitable for any living space.

Due to the sophisticated and detailed nature of each product, Leopard usually releases just one unique work of art each year. Each one is handled differently by a skillful team of artists and experienced architects in the high-end furniture industry.
