About

Everyone deserves to own an original!

Hi there!

artocrat started with one simple goal: get rid of everything that's challenging or scary about buying custom art.

#1: How to find an artist?
We have rounded up some of the world's most talented and deserving artists, so you don't have to search high and low. Our professional artists each have 10+ years of experience painting custom art.

#2: How to speak art speak?
Our goal is to help you become a confident curator of your own art collection, so we value spending time teaching customers about art styles and consulting on which style or size would best suit their vision or goals.

#3: What's this going to cost me?!
We are transparent and up-front with our pricing and provide clear, easy-to-read quotes for each painting project. We will work with you to hit your budget target.

#4: Where's the money going?
Every purchase you make with us supports artists in developing countries and funds access projects around the world. You get karma points for every painting or print you buy!

#5: How to avoid art snobbery?
We think it's silly to be snobby about art, and it's really about what you like and who you are, and we get that everyone is different. We're friendly and down to earth! Just send us a message!

Returns and exchange details
We do not provide refunds for completed custom paintings due to the custom nature of the work. We allow up to two revisions of the painting if you aren't satisfied, and additional revisions may be granted at our discretion.

For highly custom paintings, we often work with digital artists to create digital mocks that you can review and approve before we start your painting. If your order is canceled before the painting is started, we will refund your payment in its entirety - however, we may need to withhold up to $150 of your refund to ensure that we can pay the digital artist.

We insure all shipments at no cost to you, so if any damage happens to the painting, we will replace it.

Payment
Paypal is the preferred method of payment, but we also accept credit cards and Etsy gift cards.
Shipping
Each piece of art is inspected and packaged for safe travel so that your piece arrives to you in perfect condition. We insure all shipments at no cost to you, so if any damage happens to the painting, we will replace it.

Paintings larger than 24x36 may need to be shipped rolled - this does not harm the painting. Additional shipping charges may apply, if you prefer that your larger painting be shipped stretched and ready to hang.

International Shipping Disclaimer
The buyer is responsible for any VAT, tariff, duty, taxes, handling fees, customs clearance charges, etc. required by your country for importing consumer goods. We do not collect this beforehand, and cannot give you an estimate of the cost - charges vary around the world. If customs fees and charges are refused at the time of delivery, your order will be returned and you will not receive a refund for shipment costs.
Additional policies and FAQs
For any painting created by artocrat, we retain the artistic rights to the painting and can share it as part of our portfolio. Note that if you send us artwork for reproduction, you must own the rights to reproduce that artwork.
