If you’re an art lover, you may find the process of buying art a tad overwhelming at times. And if you’re an artist, you may often face a challenging time when selling your work.
You’ll be glad to hear then that it is these very issues which our latest Startup of the Week is on a mission to address.
ArtScope is a new monthly subscription service which enables subscribers to discover and access art from a wide range of artists.
Here’s how it works:
Once you subscribe, you simply select the piece of art that you like from the ArtScope platform and then within the following few days, that artwork will be delivered to your home.
What happens next is entirely up to you and of course is dependent on how well the art fits in your home environment.
Your options are to either View it, Love it or Keep it! You can keep it for up to 3 months at your home, buy it if you really like it or if it’s not for you, simply return it!
In a sense it’s a case of try before you buy!
As an artist, if you’d like your work to be showcased on ArtScope, you’ll firstly need to apply. Once your work is on the site and selected by a subscriber, the ArtScope will arrange for it to be collected and delivered to the customer. You’ll receive payment as long as a customer has your art and if they choose to buy it, you’ll get 70% of the sales!
ArtScope is providing a quirky and quality service and we reckon it’s a must for art lovers and artists alike.
Finding the right supplier for your business can seem daunting when those you are looking at are overseas. So here are some things to think about when starting a relationship with and working with an overseas supplier.
