Frequently Asked Questions
How do I purchase a piece of art I like?
We do not sell artwork directly. Instead, we encourage you to contact the artists and purchase work from them. This puts more money in the pockets of artists, allowing them to create more work, and alleviates wealth gaps. Simply click on the artist's name in the caption next to their work and you will be directed to their personal page.
How do I contact an artist?
Simply click on the artist's name and you will be redirected to their personal page or account wherein you may contact them directly.
