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.
Charming Baker is a British artist who exploded onto the scene in 2007 with his first solo exhibition at the Truman Brewery. Since then he has developed a committed fan base for his original paintings and provocative prints.
He has collaborated with iconic designer Paul Smith and guest edited the Big Issue. Well known for purposefully damaging his artwork – cutting it, drilling into it, even shooting it – Baker deliberately questions the value of art. In his case, many of his original pieces now sell for hundreds of thousands. Though he says his success hasn’t changed him: “I don't spend much money,” he once told the BBC. “I still drive an old banger. I'm quite happy with my life. I put on old jeans and go to the studio and paint in a room by myself."
