Over the past 10 years we have acquired many works of art from Anwar and his professional team at Art Express, as well as, had several paintings and photos framed. During this 10 year period we have been to their retail store in Kendall (SW Miami, Florida) more than a dozen times and every visit has been a rewarding learning experience. Even though there are dozens of framing and art retailers closer to our home than Art Express, we are happy to travel the 20+ miles to Art Express since we know we are going to be treated right and find what we are looking for. Art Express owner Anwar, as well as, his very knowledgeable and talented team of designers and sales personnel have always been extremely helpful, creative and very patience in explaining our options and giving us ideas and recommendations for our home. We truly enjoy every visit with Anwar and his team and can highly recommend them as honest, creative and pleasant people to work with; no high pressure sales. If we are looking for works of art, large decorative mirrors, or just looking to frame a favorite family photo or painting, Art Express is definitely where we go. Thanks in large part to Art Express, our home is very well accented with excellent works of art and strategically placed mirrors, so that everyone that comes to our home is "wowed" by the arrangements.

I use the medium of photography to make my work and I usually print in large format, approximately 40&amp;amp;amp;amp;quot; x 60&amp;amp;amp;amp;quot;. The work is delicate, printed on clear film. I trust no other than Jasen Watson from Art Express!! He has been my one and only framer for YEARS. I often insist that I make the work and he makes the presentation look amazing! He goes out of his way to make an art out of framing!! Furthermore, I usually work up until the very last second and then frantically run into the framing shop worried about getting the work framed in time for a show! Art Express promises very fast turnaround time. They will come through for you somehow, with a variety of materials in stock to choose from! Now for special ordered materials, one should plan ahead! But either way, they will work with you to meet your deadlines, or take special care of your valuable, precious images, sentimental or otherwise, in any format. - My professor used to say, don't miss the work by staring at the frame, and Jack Johnson sings you can't see the trees for the glass windows, but a window is your portal to the outdoors, and a frame does house and protect and display! Who will you trust with your framing? - Lamia Khorshi
Art Express has a large selection of frames and products to choose from. Their turn around time is extremely quick and their attention to detail is spectacular. In particular, I would like to recommend Jasen as an amazing framer. I have been going to Jasen for 5 years as my personal framer and I continuously recommend him to others. I am an artist, working in very delicate materials that sometimes call for complicated or unique framing solutions, Jasen's technical skills as a framer and his creative suggestions always help to make the art look it's best. I completely trust his judgement and he has always taken very good care of my artwork, making sure that nothing would get damaged during the framing process. He has a great eye for detail and sense of design and also a very quick turn around time. Art Express is highly recommended! -Kari

I found Art Express in the internet and decided to give them a call to check the rates and if they could do the job I needed to get done. Jason answered my call and was very professional and gave all the information, so I decided to take the art to see the frames and get an opinion. He spent at least 30 minutes showing me all the frames and his opinion / suggestion was what I decided to go for....the job done was simply AMAZING!!! I was complete satisfied as the art done was a wedding gift for one of my core customers and they were stunned with the quality and impressed with the look. Thank you ART EXPRESS for the excellent job and the great help from your employee!!!!
We live in the Grove and had a living room with a layout that was difficult to redecorate - We tried several interior decorators and got nothing that we liked. Then one day, while walking thru the Coconut Grove Gallery we saw a very cute two chairs and table that looked like they might solve our seating problem. The Gallery brought them over for a try-out and they were perfect! We let them suggest other items and today we have a living room that we love! I think the best thing is that they let you try it in your home before making the purchase decision. We checked prices and they are not much more than the web, and you get a designer and in-house tryout.
10-02-05 Dear Anwar, The mirrors and paintings you picked out for my house, look better then what I had imagined. "A stunning visual effect." I was especially impressed with your memory of detail. This combined with your experience & talents transformed my house into a relaxing and elegant environment. Thanks, Ray & Elizabeth P.S You need to come over and see the transformation that took place. We can have some vino y tapas.
I visited this gallery with a friend of mine who was in Miami for a couple of days. I liked very much one of the many excellent artworks being exhibited there. After drinking a delicious cup of Cuban coffe gently offered by the owners of the place, I got the painting I loved for a very reasonable price. But there was something else, really astonishing. Since I was not totally satisfied with the original frame of the piece, the incredible guys there changed the old frame for a new one I chose. Barely ten minutes later, I had my piece framed with the best possible quality. I cannot think of a better service. Thank you, guys. Flavia R.
Excellent attention to detail, promptness, warmth, friendliness; these are but a few adjectives with which I can describe the service that I recieved at Art Express, and there are much more. I have found my end-all-be-all for my framing needs. Jasen accomodated my ridiculously high standards and excessive demands in true professional fashion and always with a smile. He is an angel on earth and really helped me out when I was in a bind. Being heavily involved in the customer service industry myself I understand what it takes to create customers for life, and Art Express has done that with flying colors!! Orestis Sinis
I have had nothing but great experiences with this place. I have had several pieces framed with them. I don't need to think of something. I brought in some pieces and they suggestn many options on what you can do with your things. Come check it out at Rock Fish Grill near them. They did quite a few things for us and we are very happy with the end results. All of the clientel there is very helpful and always willing to help. I wouldn't go anywhere else. Carlos has always been there for me. I love them all. They are concerned and want you to be happy. How could you go anywhere else.
