Founded in 1993 by Lucas and Marcia da Silva, Universal Art Gallery originated on Ocean Side Walk in Venice, California. With the rapid expansion of its business ranging from wholesale and retail art services to custom framing and mirrors, lacquer and posters, Universal expanded into its current location on Lincoln Boulevard in Los Angeles’ West Side. We retain our small, family-run business approach and our stellar reputation for delivering quality, timely services at highly competitive prices. Customer satisfaction is our top priority and we take great pride in our flexible and friendly approach to meeting all of our clients’ needs, ranging from aesthetic to financial to scheduling. As a testament to this philosophy, Los Angeles Magazine voted Universal Art Gallery “Best Framer in Los Angeles” for 2001.
