A new gallery has just opened its doors in Stamford – and is the only one in the UK allowed to sell unique high-end Disney artwork.
The stunning pieces, which range in price from around £75 up to £1,400, are based on originals hand-painted in America.
The gallery, Main Street Fine Art, opened on Monday at Stamford’s South View Business Park.
It is the brainchild of 22-year Evie Pearce who fell in love with Disney Fine Art while on holiday at Disneyland Paris as a child.
She said: “Disney is known all over the world for creating iconic characters loved by people of all ages. I have life-long passion for Disney and I remember the first time I saw one of these paintings I was amazed. They are beautifully made.
“About a year ago I was looking to buy one, but I realised you couldn’t get hold of them in the UK. I e-mailed Disney Fine Art, which licenses galleries all over America to sell its products, and said I was interested in selling them over here.
“They were really excited about the idea and, a year later, we have the gallery up and running and are also our selling art via our website and on Amazon.”
Main Street Fine Art offers a bespoke framing service to compliment each customer’s choice of painting.
The gallery has around 70 paintings in stock at a time, with new designs being added frequently.
Disney Fine Art artists based in America create original paintings which then go through a detailed scanning process before being sprayed onto canvas by a special printer in a process known as giclée. The paintings are then embellished by hand.
The company which produces the work, Collectors Editions, is an official licensee of The Walt Disney Company.
