For people who want impactful art and equity built into the process
Is there an artwork in Jenie Gao Studio’s portfolio that resonates with you that you’d love to use on a product, in a photo shoot, or another purpose? Are you interested in commissioning something custom and curious about your options for future image use?
Jenie Gao Studio offers arts licensing! Arts licensing is how you can acquire permission to use one of my artworks. It’s a great way for us to build a mutually beneficial partnership.
Healthy partnerships are rooted in fair agreements, value in labor, and great communication. Jenie Gao Studio’s image use agreements are built on a foundation of consent culture—it’s amazing that you want to work together! Let’s make sure we create terms that benefit all of us.
Commercial licensing includes art for:
- Products & Merchandise
- Photo shoots (e.g. products, professional photographer’s backdrops, promotional campaigns)
- Both monetary and non-monetary purposes
Personal licensing includes art for:
- Personal photo shoots (e.g. weddings in front of murals / art backdrops)
Flat Fee: This is a total set amount and depending on the amount can be paid 100% upfront or broken into a payment schedule. This is the best option for one-time use arts licensing or limited edition runs of a product or ad.
Royalty percentage: This is a percentage of the retail sale price of a product. This payment type is best for an ongoing run of products that use an artwork.
I’m always happy to work with clients to come up with a payment plan that works for them.

But don’t just listen to me. Let's hear from a client on why arts licensing works well for them!
Working Draft Beer Co. hired Jenie in the Spring of 2018 to produce a 200 sq. ft. original mural inside our taproom that would invoke the industry, artistry, and community inherent to brewing. Immediately, we were floored by the depth and breadth of conversations we had with Jenie. We spun general concepts, ideals, back-of-napkin notes, and from all of that she grasped and weaved and created a piece embodying what we could only half-articulate, which is exactly what art does! The mural, How We Gather, is now synonymous with Working Draft Beer Co., so much so that we had our delivery van fully wrapped in the image, transporting the mural throughout Madison on beer deliveries. Similarly, we have had beer koozies and glassware feature the mural, each a little totem of who we are as an organization.
