It’s Sustainable

Particularly if you buy work by a local artist. It’s unlikely to get thrown out like much of the fast fashion or faddy items available. Plus packaging is minimal and there’s no carbon footprint that comes with shipping art from overseas.

It’s Unique

All paintings, sculptures and other original artworks are one of a kind. No two are the same. There is little else that has the same level of rarity. Even prints, at least those that are numbered, are limited, making them just as unique.
