Custom In Memoriam Paintings

Make Memories Live On With an In Memoriam Portrait

A hand - painted in memoriam portrait is one of the most heartfelt and beautiful ways to honour the memory of a loved one, creating a fitting and respectful tribute that displays their spirit through the beauty of art.

While nothing can take away the pain of losing someone we love, many people who are grieving take comfort in the visual reminder that a memory portrait holds - offering a timeless memento that inspires the recollection of happy memories and a rich life.

A Note From the Artist: Christian Chapman on In Memoriam Paintings

“In memoriam portraits are the most emotional genre I paint. While there’s naturally an element of sadness around it, I also know that I’m bringing light into the customer’s world via their loved one being brought to life in an art piece.”

“I’m passionate about capturing the personality of the subject to the highest degree of detail. I really try to tap in and recreate their character with my paintbrush.”


Your Custom In Memoriam Portrait on a Medium of Your Choice

At Christian Chapman Art, we offer a range of mediums on which to display your custom artwork.

Choose to have your custom in memoriam portrait painted on canvas or or opt for metal for a spectacular high-end finish that shimmers and shines, changing the colour and mood of the painting as you move. 

Or, for a powerful and uniquely displayed memorial portrait painting, choose to feature your art on a vintage surfboard made by Christian.
