Our Mission & Manifesto
Every single day we’re hard at work building a company that provides you with the absolute best possible art buying experience out there. We believe buying original art should be exciting, fun, and incredibly easy. The art we present to you is from hand selected artists and galleries, affordable, and always of the highest quality.
You should have the original
The world is bursting with box stores carrying products that you’ll probably see in 9 out of 10 of your neighbor’s homes. You are unique. We know you want more than cheap reproductions and prints that have been mass produced a million times over. Each and every work of art on Zatista is 100% unique, 100% original. Just like you, there is only one. Choose different. Choose the original.
You should be able to find art that you like, easily
If you wanted to go buy an original work of art today, where would you go? If you’re lucky, you may have one or two art galleries in town. Chances are that unless you live in a major city, options for finding a variety of different artists, and styles at affordable prices under one roof are limited. We make sure that when you come to Zatista, you’re able to easily navigate our site, always find amazing original artwork, and purchase it with just a few clicks of your mouse. Discovery and purchasing made easy.
Have you ever walked into an art gallery and felt like you didn’t belong there? Ever felt like art is only for the rich and famous? It’s all nonsense, so don’t believe the hype. 99% of us aren’t “art collectors”, but we know what we like when we see it. Buying art should cause smiles and immense joy, never anxiety. We believe so much in this philosophy that we back each and every purchase on Zatista 100%. If you are not completely satisfied with the work you bought, let us know and we’ll take it back. No questions asked. Its that simple.
You should be able to get the best possible prices
Because Zatista represents hundreds of artists from all over the world, we are able to charge commission rates to our artists that are far below that of traditional galleries (30-40% lower). The result is that you get art directly from the artist at prices that are never inflated with heavy commissions. You get quality, original art at affordable prices – direct from the artist.
Zatista was started by Internet industry veterans from eBay who believe there is a better way to discover and buy original art. We are a world-class team of entrepreneurs, and art enthusiasts dedicated to making the art-buying experience enjoyable, easy, and affordable.
