Does Artist Location Matter?

We say yes! Supporting Vancouver Island artists is an investment in our arts community and the immeasurable good artists brings to it. Purchasing from an artist in your city greatly reduces packaging waste, transportation emissions, and the risk of damage during shipping. For collectors in the area, shipping of artworks by a Vancouver Island based artist is free of charge, which can mean big savings, as shipping art across this behemoth of a country is $$$! We love that for local purchases, the artist is often available to deliver the art in person and tell you a little bit about it.

How Do We Select Artists?

When meeting with artists we think a lot about the originality relative to the existing collection. We want each artist to bring something new to the table. We carefully set limits on the number of artists represented per region to maintain variety while not overwhelming clients. As a result, the selection process is competitive — but we encourage artists to reach out! If you are a Vancouver Island artist seeking representation, you are welcome to contact us below with a link to your portfolio. Please be patient in waiting for feedback as we receive daily applications.

Feeling Overwhelmed?

Analysis paralysis is a very real thing with major purchases such as art. Fear not! If you don’t know where to start, send us a message below. Tell us what styles you like, if any artist(s) caught your eye, or other parameters such as size, budget, etc. No one knows our collection better than us, and we would be happy to pull together a shortlist of artists or artworks to help focus your search.

Our Story

ArtMatch started in 2015 with a handful of talented artists and slowly we expanded our representation to include more diverse genres, styles, and experience levels. Through the online collection and our consultation services, we have helped source art for hundreds of spaces, both residential and commercial. We are relatively new to the BC area, but are actively seeking exciting, talented Vancouver Island artists. Stay tuned!

“As a full time artist who travels a lot and is often out of town, ArtMatch has been a life saver for me. Their commission is incredibly fair to the artist, lower than most galleries and designers. The business model gives artists a straightforward option to support themselves and gives clients access to local artists. I encourage any artist making a living from art to work with ArtMatch.”
