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.
Maria Rivans is a contemporary British artist, known for her scrapbook-style collages. A mash-up of Surrealism meets Pop-Art, Rivans’s work is often culled from her huge collection of vintage paraphernalia.
Rivans grew up in Essex and spent her childhood drawing and doodling. She studied 3D design at the University of Brighton and set up her own workshop designing jewellery before developing the complex, colourful and beautiful collages for which she is best known.
Her extensive collection of vintage ephemera has been scavenged over time from antique books and retro magazines. Rivans says she is always on the look-out for that perfect ‘something’ in second-hand shops and at market stalls.
Each of her artworks are the product of months of careful deliberations and decisions, every tiny tweak necessary in the final formation. She describes her work as “piecing together an unruly jigsaw.”
