Creative Factory transforms local art scene with Malaysia’s 1st digital oil-painting service

It produces stunning and timeless digital oil paintings that will satisfy the hearts of every art enthusiast 


AMONG the oldest medium used when one discussed painting is oil painting. In fact, Mona Lisa was created by Leonardo da Vinci using oil paints during the Renaissance period in the 15th century. 

Oil painting is the process of painting using pigments with an agent of drying oil as the binder. It has been the most common technique for artistic painting on wood panels or canvas for several centuries, spreading from Europe to the rest of the world. 

The benefits of oil for painting images include greater flexibility, richer and denser colour, the use of layers and a wider range from light to dark. However, the process is slow, especially when one layer of paint needs to be allowed to dry before another is applied. 

With the tedious process being repeated over and over again to get the best result and end product, homegrown art platform Creative Factory has introduced Malaysia’s very first digital oil painting service. 

It offers Malaysians a distinctive and thrilling opportunity to turn an otherwise incomplete precious moment into a lasting memory on a canvas that will endure for a long time. 

By blending traditional drawing techniques with cutting-edge technologies, Creative Factory produces stunning and timeless digital oil paintings that will satisfy the hearts of every art enthusiast. 

“Our mission is to share an otherwise exclusive service to more Malaysians, at an affordable cost,” shared Creative Factory CEO and founder Nareshbabu Naidu. 

“We want to make digital oil painting accessible for everyone, capturing our customer’s cherished moments uniquely and specially. Our commitment to excellence in every aspect of our services will help us achieve this goal, as well as promote a deeper appreciation for modern-traditional art techniques.”

With a goal to revolutionise the art scene in Malaysia, Creative Factory is committed to staying at the forefront of exciting new technology and continually strives to create stunning art pieces and unforgettable experiences for consumers. It also intends to strengthen and expand its reach and partnerships so that more Malaysians can enjoy digital oil paintings. 

Since its founding, Creative Factory has grown to be the pioneer of digital oil painting in the local scene. To date, the team has achieved several groundbreaking milestones, including being featured in the Malaysian Book of Records for “Fastest to Complete 15 

Digital Oil Painting Portraits on Canvas”. “Using a stylus and pressure-sensi- tive tablet, our artists blend colours, apply textures and employ a variety of techniques to create cohesive pieces that serve as ever-lasting memories for their patrons. Beyond simulating the look and feel of a traditional oil painting, the final product can even be 

tailored to meet specific customer needs. “Perhaps most significant of all, Creative Factory allows people to add their missing loved ones into the painting. Whether it’s a family member or beloved pet who is no longer around, the completed masterpiece 

is sure to tug at heartstrings,” added Naidu. From wedding shoots to family portraits, Creative Factory can paint by referring to several photos to create a mesmerising, life-like portrait that evokes emotions and memories for years to come. 

To ensure the quality of its digital oil paintings, Creative Factory continues to invest in training and upskilling its team of expert artists, using only the best materials including premium tools, canvases and colours. 

“Every painting undergoes a rigorous quality control process to ensure that it meets the brand’s high standards before being delivered to its clients’ doorsteps,” Naidu explained. 

The brand has also successfully partnered several prominent celebrities and influencers, such as Amber Chia and Datuk Seri Siti Nurhaliza, to produce awe-inspiring portraits that have captivated the attention of social media users on Facebook, TikTok and Instagram. Since its establishment in 2020, Creative Factory has sold a staggering 10,000 paintings, demonstrating their unwavering demand and exceptional customer satisfaction.
