"During our visit to Lisbon my husband and I stumbled upon the Welcometoart – Art Gallery quite by accident. The gallery had on exhibition works by the artist Diogo Navarro. We had not heard of this artist before but instantly fell in love with his work and decided to purchase on of the paintings.


Since the painting was to big to take it with us on a flight, we had to have it sent to us. We were lucky enough to meet the owner Mr. Pereira at the art gallery and he walked us through that process and how he would take care of it for us. In addition Mr. Pereira introduced us to the artist and told us about his career and works which was very pleasant.


Everything that Mr. Pereira told us has proven correct and the painting came to us in perfect condition. His service has met all expectations and we will for sure visit Welcome to Art next time we will be in Lisbon."


"We recently purchased a beautiful art piece from Welcometoartlisbon and are extremely happy with the acquisition. We went to see it a few times but only took the decision to acquire it after talking to José Manoel. What an excellent service from the beginning to the end. The art piece was delivered to our place in Switzerland in a very expedite way and we were constantly informed during the entire process. Indeed a very professional service and from my experience, one of the most service oriented Art Galleries in the Iberian Peninsula, especially for foreign buyers."

“We had a great experience visiting the Welcome to Art Lisbon gallery and followed up by ordering online a painting we saw there and loved. Terrific experience from start to finish, as the painting arrived in the US quickly and in perfect condition. We are so happy to have this beautiful piece of Portugal in our home in Seattle!”

"My wife and I fell in love with a painting while visiting Lisbon. The transaction was seamless and the painting arrived well packaged and in perfect condition upon our return home. Throughout the transaction there was consistent communication to help schedule the delivery, provide tracking information, and then after arrival to ensure everything went as planned. We really enjoyed the experience with Welcometoartlisbon and now have a unique memory that will last a lifetime on display in our home.".

"When we first entered the location we did expect some pop-up shops. But we have been
surprised by the palace architecture and even more by the paintings hanging on the walls.
My wife has already fallen in love with the paintings of Diogo Navarro which we have seen in
restaurant in Lissabon and I was to follow when we saw a Navarro painting in the gallery of
“welcome to art”. We met Mr. Pereira and he was so kind to explain a lot about the gallery,
the artists and the paintings. We then need just a couple of minutes sitting in front of the
painting, we thought to buy, and quickly came back to Mr. Pereira to finish the purchase.
Everything went smoothly. We have been always informed about the shipment status and
the painting arrived super wrapped in Vienna. Thanks to Mr. Pereira we can enjoy it now
during every day.".

"I stumbled onto Welcome to Art while searching the internet for art galleries in Lisbon. 

On a Sunday afternoon I walked into this beautiful building where the gallery is located on the upper floor. Mr Pereira and André were extremely helpful and accommodating with my need to try the art pieces I had seen on their website at home, before making up my mind about which pieces would work well in my space. From the delivery of the art to purchasing, framing and hanging up on the walls, the experience was very professional and pleasant. I highly recommend Welcome to Art to anyone looking to buy beautiful original paintings".

“A diferença na Welcometoart reside não só na diversidade e do bom gosto do acervo, mas também no atendimento verdadeiramente personalizado do José Pereira e da sua equipa, algo que é difícil encontrar ”.

"One of the next memories of a Portugal trip was finding Welcome Art— a Lisbon-based 
Gallery with an ever changing exhibition of Portuguese art and artists. I purchased one if my favorite pieces and use the website to stay abreast of the local art scene".

"My wife and I fell in love with a painting while on vacation to Lisbon during a visit to the Welcometoart Art Gallery. The purchase was quick, easy, and communication throughout shipping was timely and accurate. The piece arrived safely to our home and packaging was very secure.".

“We recently visited the Welcometoart Art Gallery—which is in a beautiful building—in Lisbon and immediately fell in love with two paintings. Because we couldn’t decide which we loved more, we bought both! Jose Manoel was very knowledgeable about the art and artist, and a pleasure to work with. He handled this shipping, etc., and the paintings arrived quickly (and very well packed). We are thrilled to have them in our home.”


“We recently purchased a beautiful triptych from Welcometoartlisbon after visiting the lovely gallery in Principe Real several times. Each time we visited, the owner and founder, Jose, was helpful and kind and went out of his way to answer all our questions. Jose works with over 60 Portuguese artists and we were even lucky enough to meet the artist who had painted our triptych. The process of purchasing the triptych was very smooth and straight forward. We would highly recommend Welcometoartlisbon to anyone with an interest in Portuguese art.”

"Jose has an infectious enthusiasm for art and represents a wide-ranging collection of artists to show the best in modern Portuguese art. He is very knowledgeable and engaging and deals quickly and professionally with enquiries. Shipping and delivery is handled efficiently and with care. We are delighted with our purchase".

"C’est au hasard d’une promenade que je la curiosité m’a fait découvrir l’espace dédié à l’exposition de peinture et un ensemble d’artistes que m’étaient jusqu’alors inconnus.
Heureusement que José est un hôte dédié et chaleureux, sans être envahissant, qui parle avec enthousiasme et savoir du travail de chaque artiste, donnant ainsi une plus-value indéniable à tout visiteur intéressé.
Je suis passé régulièrement à la Gallérie et j’ai été accueillit toujours avec le même enthousiasme et la même énergie.
J’ai eu l’occasion d’acheter trois travaux de Diogo Navarro, dont son talent n’a d’égal que sa gentillesse. A chaque fois José a apporté son inestimable expertise, son précieux savoir-faire et sa gentillesse qui fait de lui un être rare et précieux.
Si lors d’une promenade à Lisbonne, votre chemin passe par le Principe Real, n’hésitez pas, allez-y faire un tour. Le lieux est historique et plein de surprises. Et je suis certain l’exposition de peinture et José vous donneront l’envie d’y retourner".

"Mi mujer y yo descubrimos Welcometoart durante un paseo en el maravilloso barrio de Principe Real en Lisboa. La galería está ubicada en un palacio transformado en una elegante galería comercial. Se visita de forma tranquila y sin la sensación de que te están observando.
Nos enamoramos por una acuarela en tonos azules, muy luminosa. José Manoel, el dueño de la galería, fue tremendamente amable y nos proporcionó conocer al autor y su proceso creativo. Una experiencia única. El cuadro nos llegó a Madrid pasado pocos días, en perfectas condiciones, y cada día nos gusta más".
