The concept is pretty simple. We help artists to get access to new customers wherever in the world they may be.
We showcase artists whose work reflects their different cultures and life experiences, so you can be sure to find something that you love. Because we work directly with independent artists, the work ships directly from their studio in their home country. Many of our artists do commissioned work, so if you have a special request for an artwork, just send us an email: firstname.lastname@example.org.

Their background, how they grew up, the cultural, social, religious and political influences in the country – these all are fascinating and actually help the viewer to appreciate the artwork even more.
