Art Lovers meet Rising Star Artists with Artbox

What’s in it for the Artist?  

Imagine you just graduated from university. You put all your energy into a great degree but you have not a dime in your pocket. Fortunately, your grades impressed employers, and you land your first paid professional job.

This career path does not exist for contemporary artists. After university, they create amazing artwork in the hope that a gallery will pick it up one day. This unpaid struggle goes on for years and got even worse with the pandemic.

Artbox changes this paradigm.

We commission the best artists in the country – the Rising Star Artists

Next month's artist Zoe Bastin is fascinated by the porousness of the body and how culture inscribes ideas of gender and sexuality onto our physical form.

Her soon to be released artwork is only available to Artbox Art Club members.


We give artists a guaranteed budget. This security takes the financial risk out of making art.
We commission the artwork before our artists start any work. We also support artists with guaranteed sales, promotion and a community of Art Angels.

What’s in it for the Art Lover?

Art is a spiritual, cultural, emotional, and also a financial investment.

Most of them are sold out. Once a month, Artbox releases a limited edition artwork that no one has seen before.

Subscribers of Artbox, we call them Art Angels, receive their surprise package once a month. Art Angel subscriptions create the budget of the following month’s artwork and make them fundamental supporters of the artist.

For removing the financial risk to the artist, Artbox can offer subscriptions for below wholesale market prices. The same artwork (if there are any left), sell at art fairs for five times and ten times the price. It’s also a great way to collect art that appreciates in financial value.

We are so confident of the quality of the work, that Artbox offer a 30-day money back guarantee to any new subscriber. And these are just a few of the perks Art Angels receive.
