* I would like an artwork in a format that is not available online...
Not all paintings are displayed in all formats, sizes and materials. It is either for logistics/practical reasons, because they are too many, because some aren't that popular, or because some are not possible to do, i.e. due to the painting's original shape, it's not possible to fit it in a square shaped box frame for example. Also, a lot of the "old" paintings were not photographed as professionally as they are now, so we reproduce them only to highest size that allows no loss of quality. In any case, if you are interested in any particular design, especially in the "More Artworks" section, please do contact us directly, either via the website, our Facebook page or phone/Whatsapp (+94 77 351 9237)
* How do you decide on the price of a painting?
Regarding the prints, the price is solely based on size and materials. The only exception would be the Limited Editions.
The original paintings on the other side have multiple factors coming into play before deciding on a price: also size and materials used, but time spent into the painting as well. Some take a day or two while some take more than a week. This can be because of technicalities and/or intricate details or because of the artistic/emotional process Mahen is going through. He also adds his own emotional factor, by either reducing the cost if he really dislikes a painting once it's completed, or increasing it if he's really attached to one and/or doesn't want to sell it, etc.
