Established in April 2015, Art Money is a Sydney-based company that now has offices in New York and sights on London.

Branded simply, ‘The new way to buy art’, Art Money is like an old-fashioned lay-by but you get to take the art home. After paying a minimum 10% deposit, payments are spread over 10 months, interest free, while Art Money ensures that the gallery – and the artist – are paid up front.
