“You’ll find in our gallery a painting of Wilma and Betty from ‘The Flintstones,’ next to a portrait of Jimi Hendrix with a bright neon light, next to an 8-foot WWII plane painted on aluminum, an oil painting of a bear with vivid colors, next to a traditional Russian landscape — we have something for everybody,” says co-owner Michael Paliga.
Paliga has been in the art business since he was 20 years old. His passion for art leads him and co-owner Peter Calamari to constantly search for new and exciting talent they know their clients will love.
“We enjoy serving our customers by finding the perfect piece they will treasure daily and will bring many years of enjoyment,” Paliga said. “We enjoy building lifelong relationships with our clients and offer a diverse collection of artists making it easy to find a painting or sculpture that evokes emotion and that our clients connect with.”
This summer, Royal Street is thrilled to welcome new artists such as American artist Shyglo, a former street artist who paints iconic portraits with the addition of hand- blown neon lights; and Canadian artist Samantha Shuter, who combines pop art, abstraction and fashion when painting the ubiquitous menswear item, the tailored suit.
Since the pandemic began, Paliga and Calamari have recognized a demand for items that evoke joy and a sense of normalcy. They’re thrilled to offer visitors a safe environment for which to experience the magic of Royal Street Fine Art.
