Welcome to LondonArt, the UK's website for buying contemporary art (founded 1997). Art is for everyone and choice is one of our guiding principles. We are uninhibited by fashion, pedigree or reputation, the who's hot, who's not mentality which dominates the art scene, we aim to represent as broad a range of artists as we can so that you the customer can easily find exactly what your looking for. There is a selection process but we select on the basis of merit, regardless of previous exposure or experiance.
We think opur approach has worked, we now have over 2000 artists on Londonart from all over the world and over 35,000 unique works of art. Every month around 100,000 unique users visit our site and spend an average 45 minutes browsing. the sheer diversity of the work on offer, with prices ranging from 50 pounds to 40k means there is truly something for everyone.
The Internet is still revolutionising the way business is done in all sectors of the economy and the art world is no exception. Londonart was one of the first websites to show and sell art on the Internet.
This shake-up in the way art is bought and sold is greatly to the benefit of artists and art buyers alike. Online galleries democratise the art-buying process, says Paul Wynter, founder and managing director of LondonArt. They make original art available to a wider audience and give more artists the opportunity to show their work.

Londonart provides an art consultancy service to a range of private and corporate clients. We work with property developers, interior designers, Hotels and restaurant chains, media and production companies and businesses to furnish them with artworks to suit their particular project.
Last year we furnished the penthouse show appartments for Pan Peninsula Towers, Europes tallest residential building in London's Docklands. Our corporate customers include 'Mars' and 'Citywire' who came to us with briefs to decorate their public and private spaces or simply to cheer up a corridor.
