Artverse Gallery is a Vancouver Island based art gallery that offers a collection of oil paintings by our in house artist, Rajat Shanbhag.
Each painting is created by drawing inspiration from Vancouver Island and has various landscapes and scenes depicting the same.
All of our paintings are original oil paintings from the artist and are painted plein air or in the studio over a few sessions depending on the nature of the painting.
We also support local businesses and have an in-house artisanal boutique that carries a curation of sustainable products and complements the gallery.
If you are an art collector, buyer or simply an art lover looking to learn more about any of our pieces, get in touch.
We also offer customized framing, oil painting classes and commissions.
