Frequently Asked Questions

Pricing Policy

  • Starting price original work of art € 400.
  • For commissioned work, this is € 1000. 
  • I use the per linear cm/inch method.

Currently, € 9 per linear cm. ($ 27 per linear inch). 

For example:

Confession Drawing: You Think Too Much

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

(8.27 + 11.81 inch = 20.08 linear inch x $ 27 = $ 542,16).

The final price I round off to +00, 25, 50, 75.

€ 457,47 becomes € 475 (Price includes tax).

€ 91,80 becomes € 100 (Price includes tax.

I have a business can I deduct your artwork?

Yes, you can. Buying and renting art is especially for companies financially attractive 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?

I do. For € 100 per month you can borrow an artwork and immediately enjoy it before buying it. In case of theft or damage, the costs fall on the tenant of the work. Transport and hanging costs also fall on the borrower. Preferably, the work is collected personally. There are no set-up of admin costs. Including accrual of savings (purchase credit). And you can consider to take an additional Art Angels membership. Which means you will receive an additional 20% 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. I will draw up a Commission Agreement to list the aspects we agreed upon in advance. Such as payment terms, deadlines, framing (if any), delivery of the work, installation of the work, and copyright. 
With a commissioned artwork you will receive a one-year free Art Angels membership (worth of € 50). Which includes for example one free art book, 20% discount on art. And many more extras. For more information check the Art Angels membership.

If you buy an existing work (via this website’s shop) you pay in advance. you pay in advance. For commissioned artworks, I ask for a 50% downpayment. For a larger project, you can pay in a maximum of 3-4 installments.
After each payment, I start on the next stage. Which are, in general:
1. Concept (25%)
2. Visual sketch (25%)
