The Art Catalogue is a platform for artists and photographers to connect and share work they would like to sell, or find other artist’s work to sell from their online stores.
The catalogue contains thousands of artists, photographers and illustrators showcasing their artwork to a large number of online stores and galleries who can choose to sell this artwork for a 50/50 share of the profit, with us handling fulfilment at no commission.
