ArtWeLove is an innovative, curated online art store with a selective catalogue of exclusive limited edition artworks. They work directly with top contemporary artists such as Tomoo Gokita (seen above, Night and Day for $75), Francesca Gabbiani, Shelter Serra, and Molly Dilworth to produce thought provoking, hand picked archival pigment prints and Digital C-prints. Each piece comes immaculately packed for your artwork’s protection plus every work is numbered, embossed, and accompanied by a certificate of authenticity signed by the artist.
You can rest assured each ArtWeLove edition will enrich your walls, spar rousing conversations, and elicit pride within your collection – maybe, even, some envy among friends. Not to mention, their prints come in standard sizes, making it easy for you to add your personal touch when choosing the perfect frame to complete your interior makeover. All of this, and we’re certain you won’t tap into your holiday bonus because ArtWeLove editions start at $15 and go up to $2,000, a bargain given the museum-quality of the prints and the caliber of artist.
