About Us

Paddy with the first ever OTS round canvas in 2015

Outside The Square began in late 2015 founded by two mates Tom and Paddy. Having met at art school both of us held a passion for painting and an undying desire to solve problems and think laterally.

Paddy had branched out from art to pursue a trade in cabinet making, while Tom continued to pursue a career in art. 

Having noticed a need for an artist quality Round Canvas we banded together to find a solution and create Outside The Square Round Canvas.



Since we started we have perfected our Round Stretched canvas.

Producing in small batches we have been able to constantly evolve and improve our canvas to the high quality it is known for today.

As an Artist and having worked in Art Supplies retail for many years, I have come to know and understand the quality expectations of artists and their canvases and we are confident this is reflected in our Rounds.
