ABOUT US

DegreeArt.com was founded in 2003, and is one of the UK's first Online Art Galleries. Over the past 10 years, DegreeArt.com has established itself as the market leader in UK student and graduate art sales, hand picking and promoting the most promising artistic talent.
 

"DegreeArt.com offers clients the opportunity to invest in the artists of the future."

We are not just an online gallery though! 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, the Execution Room and takes part in Art Fairs throughout the year.

DegreeArt.com is run by founding partners Isobel Beauchamp and Elinor Olisa whose aim is to make the highest quality, original art accessible and affordable for all.

Beauchamp and Olisa are founding members of AWAD: The Association of Women Art Dealers, founded in 2009 in order to foster, promote collaboration and business deals between women art dealers and gallerists based in the United Kingdom.

     

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.
  • We ship nationally and internationally.
  • Artwork is delivered direct to your door or you can visit/ arrange a viewing of artwork at our Gallery.
  • All online purchases come with a 14 day no quibbles return.
  • Often clients would like to have artwork commissioned to create personalised art. Commissioning art is a simple but exciting process.
     

OUR ANNUAL ART PRIZE

ECOMMERCE FOR THE ART WORLD

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

In 2012 the DegreeArt.com team, 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), researched and developed the Artellite platform to enable the Art World to embrace Ecommerce as a viable additional, revenue source.
