Original art is awesome.

We’re here to let the secret out - art is amazing and everyone should have it. Fact: A staggering 82% of homes in the US have little to nothing on their walls. We think that’s crazy. Just look at an original painting for instance. We recognize that it’s undoubtedly “cool,” and are quite frankly awe-struck that another human can produce such a masterpiece from their bare hands. So it’s settled - art is awesome, and cool, and beautiful.

But art is intimidating...

When’s the last time you walked into a museum or gallery and thought, “Man I feel really comfortable here, I love all this talk about post-modern neo-expressionism and I think I’ll have that piece for my living room.” Most of us can confidently say, never. Thus, we end up thinking art is too expensive and out-of-our-league, which only perpetuates the lie that art is only meant for some people. We’re here to set the record straight - art is for everyone.

And if we succeed, artists thrive.

When more of us buy art, more crazy-talented artists can continue to create. Every year 50k artists graduate from art school in the US alone, 80% of whom will be forced to stop making art full-time if they can’t find an audience. No more! We’re bringing new art lovers to new artists every single day, which means artists get to keep being artists.
First, it helps to have a lot of passion and little bit of maddening determination!

We approached this as a any regular person looking for art. Despite other alternatives out there, no platform has seemed to meet the needs of the user. We focused on that so that, hoping that discovering art would become as easy and prevalent as ordering a car to pick you up, getting custom jeans, or buying your new favorite album.
