2-Make your own deal. Bring artworks home
When an art lover is interested in a piece of art, he can contact directly the artist without any intermediary.
It is the cheapest way to buy art because no intermediary means no commission.
A contact form is located on the artwork’s page for this purpose. It also contains a "make an offer" section to easily propose a price and a delivery method to the artist.
We strongly recommend the parties to meet up to finalize their deal. Meeting the artist is one of the highlights of purchasing a piece of art via ArtWe. It is also the best way to:
- Make sure you are fully satisfied with the artwork
- See other pieces of artwork from the same artist
- Avoid scams and misunderstandings
Important: Before meeting anyone in person for buying/selling art, be sure to carefully review our General Advice page.
3-or Buy it with ArtWe! Secure your transaction
Whenever you see a work of art with a black banner it means that it can be purchased online via our payment gateways.
When this option is chosen, ArtWe acts as an intermediary between buyer and seller.
It's more secure in many ways:
- Artwe holds the buyer's funds until the sale is successful
- If a problem occurs and the sale doesn't take place, ArtWe refunds the buyer immediately
- When the delivery is made, ArtWe transfers the funds to the seller
So neither party has to worry about money on delivery day.
About the Delivery
- ArtWe helps to co-ordinate the delivery, but it remains the responsibility of the buyer & seller
- They must choose their delivery option (we are talking local scale)
- Depending on the chosen delivery option, small delivery fees can apply (usually not since we operate on a local scale). However, should there be delivery fees they must be paid directly to the deliverer when the delivery is received or sent
- This is the only moment where buyer & seller will have a direct contact
