How to use Own Art at The Other Art Fair 2017
23 March 2017
London’s The Other Art Fair opens next week, showcasing artwork from the very best emerging and undiscovered artists. It’s a chance to meet and buy work directly from the artists themselves, who have been handpicked by a committee of art industry experts.
We’re really excited to partner with the The Other Art Fair to provide Own Art as a finance option for fair-goers, making collecting art more affordable and accessible. You can use it to buy any artwork at the fair.
Not sure how Own Art works? We’ve prepared a four step guide:
1: You’ve found something you’d like to buy! Let the artist know you’d like to pay using Own Art.
2: You’ll be shown to the Own Art desk where a dedicated team will take you through a short application process. This won’t take more than 10 minutes.
3: If you’re approved, you’ll receive immediate proof of the agreement. If not, you can choose an alternative payment method.
4: That’s it! Take your new artwork home there and then. You’ll pay the amount back to our finance provider (Hitachi Capital Consumer Finance) by direct debit in 10 equal monthly instalments, totally interest free.
