Premium Artist Quality Canvases and frames

We stand by the quality of our canvases. Our customers agree

Shipping Australia Wide

HI, I'M TOM.

A Victoria-based Aussie artist working from my Geelong studio alongside my assistant Wally who stares at me incessantly for another walk and insists on bringing his bone to work.

I’m qualified in Fine Art and when I’m not building canvases, painting on them, or teaching others to do so, I work managing an art supplies company.

Founded in 2015, OTS was born when we were stuck searching for a good quality round canvas for our own artwork, so we decided to make them ourselves

What makes Outside The Square Canvas different?

Professional Finish

Each Canvases sides are neatly stretched with limited puckering. The back of the canvas features tidy folds and two rows of staples. The unique stretcher is professionally bevelled.

Warp Resistant

Every size in the range has been strength tested to withstand significant weight/pressure. The 25mm deep MDF stretcher also adds to the stability and warp resistance of the canvases.

Tightly Stretched

All OTS canvases are hand stretched with a focus on tautness and neatness. Every size in the range is stretched with even tension to avoid any chance of loosening or slack.

Hand Stretched in Australia

All of our canvases are hand made in our Geelong workshop. The level of craftsmanship and attention that goes into producing each and every canvas is high, setting us apart from many mass produced canvas brands.
