A History of Excellence

Our humble beginnings started in 1987 when we sold picture frames in the Aloha Stadium Swap Meet as Pictures Plus. Hotels and large chain stores that wanted our products and services did not want to do business with a "retailer" so we created the parent company "The Art Source, Inc." in 1989 to differentiate from Pictures Plus.

The Art Source, Inc. was created as a corporation to do business under "DBA’s" for entities like Pictures Plus. We also wanted to be very professional and grow the business as large as the islands would allow.

What is unique about our business is that we are a manufacturer and retailer. This enables us to effectively meet our customers needs by having several different unique businesses that all utilized our manufacturing capabilities without confusing the customer. We believe our core competency is "mass customization of products for your home". We have extended way beyond picture frames to utilize our manufacturing capabilities in closet systems, cabinets, specialty items and several types of furniture.

We have partnered with other great brands across many different types of businesses trying to leverage our strengths in manufacturing, retail locations and logistics as well as our strong roots of knowing the Hawaiian Islands well after having done business in Hawaii for 25 years.

The Art Source Divisions:

  • Pictures Plus is our framing entity where we have seven retail locations on all major islands that we service from our 43,000 SF manufacturing facility in Kapolei.
  • Diamond Head Gallery is our fine art gallery that has locations on Front Street in Lahaina, Maui and Waikiki. Here we represent several artists and sell primarily to the visitor market.
  • Design Studio has two separate customer bases of retail and corporate customers and we do everything from cabinet manufacturing to picture frame specification and manufacturing for the resort markets. Under the Design Studio brand we also have our own cabinet custom manufacturing by Exotic Woodlines.
  • California Closets and The Sliding Door Co. are two licensed divisions in home and business remodeling focusing in elegant storage spaces and enhancing the aesthetics of entranceways.
  • We became a licensee of Sanuk for the same reasons Pictures Plus was created, which is purely “filling a void” in the local market. After the roaring success of our two Sanuk stores in Waikiki and Lahaina we decided to create our own brand, Island Sole, to combine all of the best brands of sandals & slippers in one easy to shop location.
