The Story.

Walls for art

ARTBnB is the brainchild of Andrew Scanlan (frustrated artist and serviced accommodation owner) and International Serviced Accommodation Guru Sharon Chapman.

We work on the principle that “every space is enhanced by good art”. Art provides soul and character to any room and delivers the unique emotional connection we feel within a space. Art needs walls and we are providing them.

The problem for most artists is the difficulty in getting exposure for their work. There are millions of great artists across the globe producing beautiful artworks that only very few people get to enjoy. Very few artists will get a chance to exhibit in galleries and those that do are often charged extortionate commission on the sale of their work.

We came up with a concept that would help artists achieve global exposure whilst providing a simple strategy to turn their art into substantial income. We have achieved this by connecting with the global phenomena of serviced and holiday accommodation. There are at least 6 million serviced accommodation properties around the world and they all have one thing in common. They have walls for art. Effectively 6 million art galleries that can be enhanced by selling art to its guests.

Owners of Hotels, Guest Houses, B&Bs, and Serviced Accommodation can increase their revenue substantially, simply by hanging beautiful artwork on their walls. Guests can experience living with great art whilst they stay in the accommodation and have simple access to buying the art and having it delivered and waiting for them when they get home.

Art4BnB provides the platform delivering a global market to all artists which allows them to turn their art into successful lucrative businesses. It also generates a new and substantial income stream for Serviced Accommodation owners all over the world.
