All original artwork for sale by BlackRock Medium comes with a Valuation Letter and a Certificate of Authenticity from BlackRock Medium.
Are all the works on BlackRock Medium available for purchase?
Since we offer both originals and reproductions, it is possible that the original has been sold, but prints are still available. If the original work has been sold, this is indicated on the page. If you are unable to find another work that you love, do not hesitate to get in touch as we can suggest other similar works or discuss having a piece commissioned just for you.
The work I wanted is no longer available - can I commission a similar work?
ABSOLUTELY! All artists accept commissions please see commission page for details.
Is framing available for all works?
Yes. Sometimes the artist has already chosen a frame, and we can send you a photo. If the work is not framed, when you make a purchase, you can let us know that you want the work framed.
Who is responsible for the cost of framing?
If the artwork is already framed, then the frame is a part of the work and therefore already included in the price. When the work is unframed, BlackRock Medium offers framing at an additional cost and you will be charged a small premium for this along with the price of the artwork at the time of purchase.
Do you offer recommendations and advice?
Our role is to introduce you to an artist's works. We can offer you a personalized selection chosen especially for you. To receive this selection, you can contact us at Blackrockmedium.com and note "Personalized Selection" in the title field. We will get back to you within 48 hours to discuss your needs.
I want to give original art as a present but I don't know what to choose. What can I do?
Gifting artwork is a great idea, but it can be tricky to choose artwork for another person, even if you know them well. The safest option and the one we recommend is to give them a Gift Card (in the amount of your choice) from BlackRock. They can then choose a piece from any of the artists on our site.

Rather it's from the bark fiber of a special tree called Qintan or Than trees (Pteroceltis Tatarinowii Maxim). This tree's bark fiber can be peeled and grow back again and again. Because of these special fiber, top quality xuan paper can last for hundreds of years.
