Frequently Asked Questions

Pricing Policy:

Originals

For all original artworks, I use the per linear cm method. Which is currently, € 9 per linear cm. 

For example:

Confession Drawing: You Think Too Much

30 cm + 21 cm = 51 linear cm x € 9 = € 459*

* All prices include tax.

Silkscreen prints and etchings

Silkscreen prints and etchings cost 20% of the price of an original artwork. 

For example:

Silkscreen: Ergere dicht nicht, wundere dich nur

29,9 cm + 42,4 cm = 72,3 linear cm x € 9 = € 650,70.

20 % of (€ 650,70) = € 130,14*

Digital Download

Digital Downloads cost 6% of the price of the original art piece. A watermark is integrated in the image. With a Digital Download you will also receive a Certificate of Authenticity.

For example:

Confession Drawing: You Think Too Much

6% of € 459 = € 27,38*

Framed Art

If you want your artwork to be professionally framed. I can take care of this. The costs of the framer will be added. Plus a 10% Frame Handling Fee. 

Does your art come with a certificate of authenticity?

Yes. All artworks come with a signed authentication contract aka Certificate of Authenticity.

I have a business can I deduct your artwork?

In short yes you can! Buying and renting art is especially financially attractive for companies, as it is tax-deductible. 

There are several options possible:

Above € 1000 you put the art on the companies balance sheet and write it off to the residual value in, for example, five years. Just like you would do with a computer or a car. There is an additional benefit when buying. Because for business investments you can get a deduction of the profit, the so-called investment deduction. Then you can deduct a percentage of the investment from the profit and thus pay less tax. Since there are several options possible please consult with your accountant about what would be the best option for your company.

Do you rent or lease your art and what are your fees?

Yes. For € 50 per month, you can borrow an artwork and immediately enjoy it before buying it. 

With every extra month that you borrow the artwork, the borrow-costs will be deducted if you decide to buy the artwork. 

For € 50 per year, you can also become a VIP Art Friend which includes the option to borrow an artwork for 1 month.

And when you consider to become a VIP Art Friend. This means you will receive an additional 10% discount in case you would buy the artwork.

Do you have a return policy?

Yes and no. If you are unsure if you want to buy the work, you can choose to lend it first. See above.

Do you accept commissioned projects?

Yes, I do. If you are ready for a unique artwork by Kim Engelen. We talk about what you want. And then I will draw up a Commission Agreement to list the aspects we agreed upon in advance. 

What are your payment terms?

1. Concept development (25%)
2. Visual sketch (25%)
3. Rough version (25%)
4. Finished work (25%)
