Portrai Me is a visual art project that creates ‘portraits’ of people’s personalities through the various motifs in their lives.
Each piece is created in collaboration with the client who orders the Portrai Me. After ordering, the client receives a form to customize the artwork. They can then provide a list of words and attach images they would like to be represented on the piece. We create the custom drawings entirely based on the submitted lists and images.
Portrai Me was started in 2014 by artist, musician, and writer Shane Butler. The project is a celebration of diversity, a way to express gratitude for the people and things we cherish, and an exploration into the ways our material world informs our psychological world.
A primary goal of the project is to create one-of-a-kind artworks at accessible price-points. We want to provide fine art to the people; we want our project to be able to be owned by people who come from all different economic backgrounds; and we want to make that process easy.
Our project also provides a working environment where multiple artists can learn our style of drawing and produce these pieces. We aim to create an outlet for our artists to make an income doing work that they love to do, while still having the time and flexibility to work on their own individual art practices. You can learn more about our artists on Our Team page.
People love to get our custom portraits as birthday gifts, life-maps, wedding celebrations, anniversary kudos, employee recognitions, awards, vision-boards, and the list goes on…
