Campaign to Support Independent Artists to Sell Art Online

17 July 2013

Global art network Artists Info have launched a campaign to support independent artists across the UK and beyond tap into the £40bn online art market 


About the campaign

The online art market is worth an estimated £40bn with a director of Saatchi Gallery recently quoted saying: "We sell more art in a month online than most bricks-and-mortar galleries do in a year."

The Support Independent Artists Campaign has been created to help encourage people to support and buy from independent artists and artisans directly. There are millions of self employed talented artists in the UK alone creating individual, one-off pieces who sell art online direct to their customers through their own websites and online galleries like Artists Info.

These independent artists offer a genuine alternative to mass produced artwork and when you connect and buy from them direct you are helping to support them as well as saving on gallery-added commission. This makes for an enjoyable, personal experience which can often be surprisingly affordable. And when you buy an original piece of artwork from an emerging artist you have the potential opportunity of investing in a future star.

Being an artist is not an easy career choice as it can be difficult to make a living from it. The talent, tenacity and passion which many artists posses is admirable and we believe they deserve recognition, support and encouragement to pursue their ambition as an artist. Show your support by buying from them, sharing their website links across social networks and joining our campaign.
