Buying and selling great art should be easy. Our mission is to make sure it is.
We are a team of art lovers who want to help people to enjoy owning art. We couldn't understand why buying and selling art was such a lengthy process with a host of hidden costs attached. So we’ve done something about it.
The trusted marketplace for art
We handpick artworks, offer weekly curated collections and new releases, at low prices to boot. The secret? We work directly with a growing community of carefully vetted galleries, dealers, artists and collectors.
We offer simple, upfront shipping rates with insured couriers who bring the artwork right to your door. With no minimum selling prices, easy shipping and 14-day returns, we’re doing away with the painful post-sale back and forth so often found in the art market.
