Complaint Review: Starving Artists Group
Starving Artists Group21820 E. Wallis Dr. Poret, Texas United States of America
Starving Artists Group "Original" Commercially Mass Produced Paintings Poret, Texas
*Consumer Comment: Not Sure What Your Complaint Is
These were clearly mass produced. I envision a factory with dozens of "artists" painting copy after copy of the same paintings and signing the names they are given. I found several signed "Misc." I imagine that meant the artist was supposed sign miscellaneous signatures on them, but he misinterpreted the work order. Many of the paintings appeared to be signed with the same red marker, although they were different signatures.
The vast majority of the paintings were of landscapes with trees or small town scenes. If that was not what you wanted then the selection was very limited. I also saw a few different flowers and a some dolphins.
The frames were glued together and made from cardboard with a thin paper veneer. I was surprised at how light and flimsy they were. They even looked cheap. I don't know if they would pass muster in a dimly lit bedroom, but they certainly weren't worthy of being displayed in a living room or an office. The frames were available in the same four sizes that the paintings were available in.
I felt like Starving Artists Group had deceived me. I saw the TV commercial and thought there would be original paintings. What I found were cheap commercially mass produced paintings and cardboard frames. For $118 (large painting and frame) I can do better.
