Artists take on a lot of risk and, on average, get very little reward. Why?
Artists make their art at their own expense with no support, investment or pathways to a professional career. The fact that some of them make it is a miracle. Most don't - and many of those that don't are more talented than the ones that do!
This has to change. How? Artbox supports artists to make work by taking the financial risk out of the system. We commission them to make work with guaranteed sales. We support them by subscribing Art Angels, who pay as little as $40 per month to receive top artists' work, and in return we provide artists with support.
That's how and why we are disrupting the art market.
