Art is our first expression of self, stories and community. It continues to etch experiences, lessons, inspirations, facilitating both questions and answers to the meanings we seek.
ARTO was founded to help art seekers and lovers discover more of the art they want, the way they want. We believe there are many ways to engage with art, which is why we are investing in ways to connect people with art, to inspire, inform, and entertain art lovers while letting them be participative audiences.

ARTO will always be FREE to use for Artists
Listing is free. Whether you are an artist or a partner, your profile on ARTO allows you to share other elements of your project or work – where users can follow or buy from your collections, events, related works, art catalogues, or upcoming projects.
Optimise the IP (intellectual property) of your works to reach a wider audience
The ARTO experience is designed for younger Millennials and Gen-Zs who are avid cultural consumers but with an evolving desire for art and expression. We provide the platform while artists have the sole discretion to list, sell and expand the narrative of your works in various formats that will better fit the needs and lifestyle of the next generation cultural consumer.
These formats include originals, fine art prints, print-on-demand art merchandise (i.e. phone covers, scarves etc), digital collectibles like NFTs (coming soon) and AR experiences (coming soon).
Lower 90% cost and effort so you can spend more time on your practice
To print works in fine art prints or any other form, you often need to invest in high-quality photo shoots to obtain HD images. ARTO simplifies this process and helps you lower 90% costs. Use only your mobile phone to take a picture. Once you upload, we then process it with AI (artificial intelligence) to enhance your images by 10x. All digital outputs remain the sole copyright of the artists; feel free to use these images for any other purpose.
We worry about the business so you don’t have to
ARTO handles all transactions, manufacturing and fulfilment. The only time you need to pack and prepare for shipping is when an original canvas of your work is being sold.
In addition, ARTO builds all of our marketing around you. In this way, we promote you and your work through a global marketing network: interviews, story features, PR and more. We’ll handle driving traffic to your work. You spend your time on perfecting your creations.
Engage with our writers
ARTO prioritises editorial features of our artists and the stories of your works with the goal of providing in-depth conversations, engaging visuals, and an emphasis on practice and people. Join our writing community who believe in these essentials.
Cross-Practice Exchange & Collaboration
ARTO is your partner. Once you join ARTO, you will be invited into our artist community where you get to know other artists and exchange the experience of your practice. You can also work with our Curators to experiment with new collections, and styles or our technologists to see how your work can be meaningfully extended in the digital realm.
