We are your eyes in the art world. That’s why we’re always searching for amazing new artists and artworks that will make you smile, cry, or feel something you weren’t expecting. But have you ever wondered how we curate our selection? Or thought about what it is exactly that we hope to find, when we are treasure hunting for new artworks to share with you? If so, we’re happy to tell you.
How we curate art
ARTWORKS THAT CATCH YOUR ATTENTION
We’re always looking for artworks that bring together unique visual expressions and exquisite craftmanship.
ARTWORKS TOUCHED BY THE HUMAN HAND
We’re looking for pieces that are unique, not perfect. We want to offer artworks that are handmade - and that you can tell that they are.
ARTWORKS THAT WE CAN PICTURE IN YOUR HOME
We’re driven by a desire to be able to see the artworks that we curate in people's homes. Our aim is to make art available for many.
ARTWORKS THAT FILL US WITH WONDER
We absolutely love creative and innovative artworks that make us wonder how it’s even possible to come up with such a fun/crazy/amazing idea. We want all artworks curated by The Ode To, to make you feel something. Joy, sadness, or excitement doesn’t matter.
ARTWORKS THAT MAKE YOU FORGET ABOUT EVERYDAY LIFE
Since our lives are so intense, and our to-do-lists are so long, we want to bring you artworks that simply make you forget about everything else, if only for a minute.
... AND WE'RE ALWAYS (YES, ALWAYS) KEEPING AN EYE OUT
We find most artist represented at The Ode To on social media, at art schools, and in magazines.
We spend endless hours searching for all that talent we know is out there.
We’re also super excited that so many artists contacts us directly, or that artists that we already work with let us know about other talented artists in their network.
