About

What is "Art Save The World"?

ASTW is a small but ambitious project made by a young 20 year old art lover who was becoming more and more conscious about the problems that the world is facing everyday and wanted to do something about it. To briefly explain, the project consists of an online art store where you can buy prints from a lot of different artists: famous, unknown, graphic designers, illustrators, photographers...

But what's the difference between an ordinary print store and ASTW?

In an ordinary art store, all the benefits generated from selling prints are distributed between the artists and the owner of the art store, but in ASTW we want to introduce a third party to also take a piece of the cake. So when you’re buying something from our store you're not just supporting the artists, but you’re also contributing to help the world because a part of the money you paid will be destinated to this cause (at the moment we will donate to "Greenpeace" and we will later discuss what this environmental NGOs does, but in the future we would be open to collaborating with other NGOs or nonprofit organizations that play their role in making this world a better place).

We want to boost the career of as many unknown artists as possible

In ASTW we know how difficult it is to get enough visibility nowadays for artists to be able to live from it. That said, we will make every effort to position our project and once we have enough visits and a greater presence, we will use this to help small artists boost their career by giving them visibility and all the money they generate with the prints sold.

Okay, so we know that this project will support not just art but will also help fund NGOs, but how exactly will we distribute the money?

We want to be as clear as possible and preferably answer everyone’s questions, so that’s why we want to answer this question right here, right now :) So the numbers are as follows: First of all, when an art print its sold for let’s say 100$ (the prices of the prints can vary a lot depending on the artist, size, popularity...) we have to take care of some expenses like the paper used for the print, the ink, taxes, maybe shipping price... Now we will imagine that the cost of these expenses are 15$ and we will remember that the retail price was 100$. (100 - 15 = 85) We have 85$ worth of "benefits", but we have to distribute this between the artists, the NGOs and our own store to make this business profitable and also have money to spend on advertising, marketing... Finally, 50% of these profits are paid to the artist who made this print, 25% will be used to fund the NGOs (Greenpeace) and the last 25% is for ASTW.

For a 100$ print: 15$=Expenses / 42,5$=For the Artist / 21,25$=For Greenpeace / 21,25$=For ASTW

Why did we choose Greenpeace?

Greenpeace is not only one of the biggest and well-known NGOs, they are an international ecologist and pacifist organization, economically and politically independent and do not accept donations or pressures from governments, political parties or companies.

They use direct nonviolent actions to attract public attention to global environmental problems and drive the necessary solutions to build a green and peaceful future. The organization is present in 55 countries in Europe, America, Asia, Africa and the Pacific, with 3.2 million partners worldwide.

Main Missions:

  • Stop climate change.
  • Protect biodiversity in all its forms.
  • Prevent pollution and abuse of the oceans, land, air and fresh water.
  • Promote peace, global disarmament and nonviolence.
This is how our website will look (can vary)

Conclusion

We think that this is a good project and one that will not only give art and artists more recognition, but will also serve to encourage support for our planet and raise awareness of the problems it is going through, with the help of all our marketing and advertising efforts.

So hopefully you like the idea as much as we do and if you believe it is a good idea and have the means to help, remember that you can support the project with a donation.

Thank you so much for all your attention!

Risks and challenges

We think that our biggest challenge will be getting the word out about our project. While other Art Print Stores are already positioned on the market with an audience that knows them, we have to start from zero. Anyway, that’s part of the project and even if we are starting with less money than our competitors and a smaller profit margin (because of the support we are offering to Greenpeace), we know that if we market ASTW better than they do, we will gain our place in the market. Nobody told us that it would be easy, and this is the most challenging and funny part of the project!
