Contrado Wants You

Ever wondered where to sell art? Especially online. Promoting your brand has always been a struggle for the creatives among us, but it doesn’t have to be. Contrado was launched with the aim of creating a curated e-commerce space for artists and designers to sell their art online in an exciting and easy way, with total creative freedom. We help artists build a brand (or promote their already existing one) and see their designs come to life, printed on our huge range of 400+ products.

Our community of incredible #ContradoCreatives has been growing. You may have noticed talented designers popping up around our site and social media, and thought “Wow, I wish that were me!” Well, we’re looking for more savvy designers to get involved and continue to help shape our marketplace.

We make selling your art fun and straightforward. You have complete control over your brand, down to adding custom labels on products and deciding on store branding. Artists work with us as we give them freedom to create products as they’ve dreamed. We turn these dreams into a reality – by making everything by hand in our studio. All products are made to order using only sustainable and ethical textile/fashion practices, so customers can shop in confidence. Oh – and did I mention it’s completely free to join?
