Why join LumiArts?
Access to an extensive range of art collectors, together with the most reputable Interior Designers, Architects and prestigious projects across the world…that’s why!
IT’S BIG NEWS
With several years working as Art Consultants in London, with Top Designers and Corporate clients, providing thousands of pieces of art across the globe, our parent company www.luminairearts.co.uk, (with showroom and gallery in Belgravia, London), launched LumiArts in 2017 to fulfill a really welcomed need from both Trade and Consumer Clients, namely, a highly curated range of fabulous art! And it is our intention to reach a worldwide art audience of millions, and promote our wonderful artists to them!
FEES and COMMISSION
LumiArts charges no fees for joining or being on LumiArts, however we take a 30% commission (plus vat), on all sales through our website!
FREE DELIVERY WORLDWIDE
We have decided to be different….and offer free worldwide delivery, all year round! What this means is that you have the choice to either build in shipping costs into your prices or absorb them into your pricing! We suggest you visit a website like www.uk.interparcel.com to get a good guide on prices for local UK deliveries.
When it comes to International delivery, LumiArts will refund back to the artist, after proof of delivery, 5% of the sale price to cover additional international shipping charges. For example, if you sell a piece of art for £1,000 for International delivery, LumiArts will refund £50 back into your account, to compensate for any extra charges incurred for International delivery. Finally, if you have any further questions regarding this new policy then please do not hesitate to contact us!
PROMOTION, MARKETING, E-SHOTS AND EVENTS
On top of art collectors and investors it’s also our job to get your art seen by our Trade Clients, and with a database of over 15,000 of them, we are constantly working to get our artists work in front of them.

HOW TO UPLOAD YOUR ART

DO’S AND DONT’S…
Tell a good story about yourself!
It’s important for customers to know about you, your art, any awards you’ve won, and your motivations to be creative. It’s also valuable information for LumiArts; to be able to really promote you and your art! People just love a good story!
A picture tells a thousand stories!
High quality images are vital to show your art literally, in the best light! Make sure images are a true reflection of the artwork and have no backgrounds (unless sculpture).
Always make sure that the first main image is ‘straight on’ with no walls shown. Do include other images too, that show the artwork at different angles, on walls and/or close ups to show texture etc. Have a look at Martin Rolt’s art and biography ‘here‘ to see how well it could and should look!
Original Art & Sculpture
All art shown must be from the artist themselves and every piece sold should be accompanied by a ‘certificate of authenticity’. LumiArts offers a service for providing certificates.
Unframed Canvas Art
The quality of your art and the materials you use is paramount to the integrity of the LumiArts website. Please ensure that you are completely confident that your work is of top quality and that you use quality paints and materials. As we are offering Premium art to our discerning clients we recommend only using quality ‘deep edged’ canvasses with a minimum depth of 2cm! Remember, most original art is hung unframed, and as many of our Trade clients are high end Interior Designers and Architects, your work can end up in amazing residences, hotels, yachts and palaces across the world.
Unframed art on metal, board etc.
Please ensure that it is clearly stated the materials you have used and of course the depth of the metal, board etc..
All framed Art
If you sell your art framed, then it’s less important the depth of the material or canvasses you use! Always frame your work in quality frames whatever the size, and give accurate depths for the finished work.
All Limited Edition prints must be in runs of no more than 150 and all hand signed and numbered by the artist. Every print sold should be accompanied by a ‘certificate of authenticity’. LumiArts offers a service for providing certificates.
Please endeavour to give the highest customer service to customers and try to reply to all enquiries within 24 hours. Remember, ‘star ratings’ are incredible important to your future sales. It has been proven that those with the highest star ratings receive more orders! Continually increasing your good reviews and star rating also leads to higher achieved sales and increased values of your art!
Please ensure you use the ‘messaging service’ within the website for ALL correspondence with customers. And please do not share your phones numbers or email addresses, as this controvenes the websites terms and conditions.
