Click through the different artist profiles on artBangBang and choose your favourite pieces. You have the option to borrow, rent or buy them by contacting the artist directly. By doing so, you will be playing an important role in the local art market and, of course, you will have boasting rights when someone asks about your new artwork hanging in your home or business. If purchasing an artwork is not affordable at this time, you may choose to buy art merch offered by the artist (ex. t-shirts, prints, framed sketches, etc.) or you can make a donation directly to support local talent.

Why free share art?

Traditional visual art is expensive. That's why only a few can afford to buy and exhibit art in our homes and offices. The majority of us can only afford no-name posters and generic frames. But what if it was free? What if artists willingly shared their artwork for free? Instead of going through institutions like galleries, what if art pieces could be shared or sold directly by the artist through the web? That is why most of art pieces available on artBangBang are free, except, if you decide to buy them!

Why borrow an art piece before buying it?

By offering to art lovers the possibility to try an art piece before a purchase, they don’t have to fear making a transaction they might regret.
