This Website Lets You "Add to Cart" Limited-Edition Filipino-Made Art
Like we always say, ready your wallets.
(SPOT.ph) Online shopping is one of the best things that consumer culture has gifted us. From food to books, you can have everything delivered right on your doorstep and you don't even have to lift a finger (except for inputting in your credit card info, of course). And Cartellino—a digital art-selling platform named after the Italian word for “small piece of paper”—lets you buy works of art from the comforts of your couch.
Launched in 2019, Cartellino hopes to cater to new collectors “who are pulled by the daunting gallery and fair walls,” according to a statement. You don’t have to attend a gallery opening or a sold-out art fair. All you have to do is browse through their website, which lets you filter works of art according to artist, price range, or size. This option is very useful if you’re looking for something very specific to hang on your living room wall.
Most of the works—by the likes of Mars Bugaoan, Kat Grow, and Vin Quilop—are only available through Cartellino. Limited-edition tote bags designed by Kiko Capile and Manix Abrera are also up for purchase. Prices go as low as U.S. $80 (roughly P4,000).
