As well as selling, commissioning and renting the finest artwork created by the artists emerging from the most prestigious art establishments, DegreeArt.com runs an Artists' Residency and Exhibition program from its gallery and takes part in Art Fairs throughout the year.

The Degree Art Way

How We Work

DegreeArt.com offers clients the opportunity to purchase unique, fresh contemporary work that has the potential to be a valuable investment whilst supporting emerging artists.

:: A DegreeArt.com collection started in 2006 has seen percentage increases of between 18% and 400% with an overall average of  127%

:: Art is expected to out perform financial assets in the upcoming decade. Art is unique in allowing investors to diversify their portfolio. With prices low and an upward trend strongly anticipated, it is an ideal tiem to begin to diversify.

Giving Back

Our Art Prize

Founded in 2007, the Signature Art Prize is the only award of its kind that aims to promote the work of artists in the very early stages of their careers.

Drawing attention to the unique perspective of students and recent graduates, the prize champions their signature themes and aims to bring their work into the spotlight. For more information visit: www.SignatureArtPrize.com

Ecommerce For The World

Artellite

Whilst the comparable industry of Music and Fashion have embraced it, the Art World has been slow to recognise and take up the potential of the Internet as a viable selling tool.

With funding from the £7 million Digital Research and Development Fund for Arts run by Nesta, Arts Council England and the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC), the team at DegreeArt.com has researched and developed an ecommerce solution for the artwork.
