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.
Banksy is one of the most famous living artists in the world. He is an anonymous British street artist and political activist who has been creating darkly humorous graffiti art since the 1990s with a distinctive stencilling technique.
His real identity is a closely guarded secret and there are numerous theories circulating about his real identity – from the front man of Massive Attack to the former Art Attack presenter Neil Buchanan. We’re really hoping the latter is true.
In 2006 his work crossed over from being graffiti into the mainstream, setting records at auction for work which had previously changed hands for hundreds or sometimes thousands. Banksy’s fame has mean that interest in street art has rocketed and he has laid the foundations for many other street artists to thrive.
