Merc’Art

Welcome to Merc’art

Merc’art is a transient art market that was lauched in 2016 and had its third edition in 2018. In less then 3 years nearly 100 artists were gathered.It showcases a melange of Portuguese artists: street artists, illustrators, painters, tattoo artists, photographers, the most know and well received, the up- and-coming, and the ones to come.

WHAT
We’re an art market that operates both online and offline. We sell original artworks, prints and fine art prints from a mèlange of artists: Street artists, illustrators, painters, tattoo artists, photographers, you name it. The most well-known, the up-and-coming and the ones to come, because once, we were all rookies. Each of them created original artworks that you will only find here.

HOW
We like to call ourselves matchmakers because that’s exactly what we like to do: artists create exclusive artworks for us; we connect them with those who love art and sell their prints, fine art prints or originals. Great, isn’t it?

WHY
Because it is urgent to democratize access to art.Our aim is to bring art close to the public. Let it come out of the galleries and merge with the cities. Let it mingle with people and the spots where they feel more at ease. And because it is also urgent to democratize the access of the new generations of artists to awareness. By merging the famous with the rising stars and the rookies, we make the concept of collaboration tangible. We believe in collaboration as one of XXI century’s driving forces. Hence we split our earning 50/50 with our artists.Hence our motto: Democr’art.
