We’re launching a major new service later this year to enable artists, online retailers and collectors to trade trusted art. And next year, we’re expanding into the US and other overseas markets.
We have partnered with Seedrs to launch a crowdfunding campaign and we’d love for you to be a part of the next stage of our journey.
