Shoomon Perry and Anika Teske decided to set up Coloursoup after experiencing these problems first hand. They wanted to create an online gallery that stocks consistently great affordable art, and that gives a fairer deal to artists and customers.
Coloursoup (http://www.coloursoup.com) was launched this month with 12 artists and over 100 original paintings, drawings and prints.
4 Reasons to buy art from Coloursoup:
1) All paintings, drawings and prints on the site are selected by a panel of distinguished artists - including two current members of the Royal Portrait Society
2) Coloursoup's commission rate is significantly lower than a high street gallery - meaning that customers get more painting for their money, and artists get a fairer deal
3) The site ships worldwide - deliveries in the UK are free
4) All artworks sold come with a 100% customer satisfaction guarantee - if you aren't happy with how a piece looks when it's hanging in your home let them know and they will arrange a full refund.
