Street artists around the world who tag buildings — often using a type of home-brewed glue called “wheat paste”– intrigued us. We were inspired by the existence of an entire underground movement committed to beautifying struggling urban landscapes, raising awareness using the power of art, and expressing creativity in a truly unique way.
So, fueled by many of those (daring) artists’ efforts, we decided to make their work available for indoor applications where their progressive vision can truly transform your space’s attitude. And that’s why we founded Wheatpaste: to showcase amazing works of art and support the talented artists who create them.
Plus, by using the web to bridge the gap between art makers and art buyers (and vice versa), we are strengthening our independent community of creative entrepreneurs whose work really inspires us all.
Thus for people who love creativity enough to pay money for it: We’ll always provide an exclusive line-up of exciting pieces created by passionate artists, then print and prep them for your hanging pleasure. If you’re someone who loves that kind of originality, buy some art from our Collective. >>
And for artists who create expressions of themselves and the world around them: We want to identify, select, and promote your work to all those people who find your pieces, hang ‘em on the wall, and show off your skills (and their awesome taste) to all their friends. So if you revel in making, promoting, selling, and then making more great stuff, then submit your work to be included in our Collective. >>
