At Electric Gallery we believe art should be accessible to everyone. As a member of the Own Art Scheme (backed by Arts Council England), we offer a 0% finance option to our UK customers, for most of the artworks we sell.
With Own Art you can spread the cost of the art you love, over 10 months. You can choose to finance all or just part of your purchase and multiple works can be bought with one loan. You don’t have to pay a deposit and - best of all - you can take your art home with you straight away!
Once you’ve found the artwork that you want to buy, just let us know that you’d like to apply for an Own Art loan to finance your purchase. All you will need is proof of residence and signature (for example, a driving license). The application process typically takes around 10 minutes.
Backed by Art Council England Own Art is a fantastic scheme backed by Art Council England, with 0% finance loans provided by Hitachi Capital Finance. Many of the leading art galleries in Britain are members of the scheme.
Your Own Art Options If the total value of your Own Art eligible artworks at checkout is between £100 and £25,000, you'll be offered the option to apply for a 0% finance loan through Hitachi Capital Finance and spread the cost over 10 months.
Originally from Liverpool, Carne Griffiths graduated from the Kent Institute of Art and Design in Maidstone in 1995. Griffiths moved to London where he learned embroidery design at the world’s oldest gold-thread embroidery company and later became the Creative Director. He made intricate designs for film, theatre, fashion and advertising industries. His designs were used for notable films such as The Last King of Scotland.
Turning his hand to painting, Griffiths now paints with confidence. He works primarily with calligraphy inks, graphite and liquids, such as tea, brandy or vodka. The precision of his paintings reflects his previous career as an embroider as they signify the artist’s close attention to detail.
Since establishing his own studio in 2010, Carne has exhibited in the UK and overseas with solo Exhibitions in Brighton, Hong Kong, Milan and an upcoming show in Hamburg. Carne's illustration work has also seen him collaborate with the British photographer Rankin for a six-page feature in Hunger magazine.
