Own Art - Labyrinth Art Gallery BrightonOwn Art

From the gallery to your home, with 0% finance

Own Art reduces the financial barriers and perceptions of elitism that commonly exist within the art market, by making it easier and more affordable for people to purchase and enjoy original art and craft, regardless of their income and socio-economic background.

Own Art is a national initiative that makes buying contemporary art and craft affordable by providing interest-free credit for the purchase of original work.

Own Art – Making Art Affordable

Labyrinth Gallery believes art should be accessible to everyone, we offer our UK customers access to the Arts Council’s Own Art Scheme.

With Own Art, building your art collection has never been easier – you get your artwork right away, and then simply spread the cost of the art prints that you love over 10 or 20 months, interest free.

For example, say you buy original art or a limited edition art print for £2,000, you will pay £200 per month if you spread your payments across 10 months, or £100 per month if you spread it across 20 months.

There are hundreds of artworks available via the scheme, including pieces from leading artists like T-BOY, Brian Arts, Louis Sidle and many more. All eligible art prints and originals are identified with an Own Art symbol on their page.

All these artworks are available under the Own Art Scheme.
