About Why Not Art

How does Why Not Art work?

There are two ways that Why Not Art works – try a piece of original art in your own space with one of our subscription plans or buy a piece of our contemporary fine art. Head over to the From Screen to Wall page to see how easy it is to welcome a beautiful piece of art to your space!

Why subscribe for art?

We believe that art ownership is an emotional bond that can take time. With our subscription plans, you can take the time to fall in love with the piece in your own space. Does it match your favourite sofa? Jive with your wedding photos? Experiment with styles, colours, and sizes of art. Whether you are in a rental home, a fledgling art collector, or a business owner with a space needing frequent updates, renting art gives the time and flexibility!

Our Artists & their Artworks

How do you select your artists?

We are addicted to raw artistic talent and work to ferret out the very best promising stars.

Subscriptions & Purchases

Can I have more than one subscription at a time?

The only thing better than one piece of art is lots of pieces of art! Yes, you can have more than one subscription at a time. Enjoy a 10% discount on each additional one. Interested in outfitting a large space? Reach out to us directly at hello@whynotart.com for a custom solution.

Can I use my earned discount towards a future subscription?

Discounts are only to buy art in our collection.

How long does my subscription last for?

Every art piece in our collection can be rented for 3, 6, 12, or 18 months!

Can I see the art before I join?

We understand how hard it can be to commit to a piece of art you’ve only seen on a screen! That’s why our subscriptions give you ultimate flexibility. You can rotate your artwork when like or cancel your subscription at any time to stop future payments. We do have events throughout the year, however, which offer the opportunity to see a piece in person before subscribing! Sign up here to make sure you don’t miss out on these exciting opportunities!

What if I want to buy the piece during my subscription?

Brilliant! You can buy the art any time. Reach out to us directly at hello@whynotart.com and we will sort out the discount you’ve earned and a final payment.

What if I move?

Prior to any move, reach out to us directly at hello@whynotart.com so we can update all your information. We will also help you with the packing and moving of your artwork. After that, bon voyage!

 

What happens at the end of my subscription?

Once you decide to cancel your subscription, there are two options:
1. Ready to purchase – use the discount you’ve earned to buy the piece of art. We will finalise the balance with you and wish you and your art a happy life together!
2. Return the art – our team will arrange the shipping of the art back to us. Your discount lasts for 6 months after you terminate your subscription so feel free to check back in and see if there is anything that catches your eye!

Can I switch the art for a new one?

Yes! Swap your piece for a new one free of charge at least once per 12 month period. Have a look at your subscription level – Loft and Penthouse Collections include more rotations. Have you already used your free rotation? You can still swap your artwork but we will have to charge for the additional shipping and packaging. Let us know and we will get you a quote!

Can you buy the art?

Yes of course! We value your loyalty, so be sure to use your earned discount as a Why Not Art member.

Can I use my discount to buy something?

Yes! You can use your discount to buy any art in our collection.

What if the value of my art piece has increased while I was subscribing?

Good news! You can buy the piece when you’re ready for what it was worth at the beginning. Lock in the price today and see what happens to your investment tomorrow.

What happens if I miss a rental payment?

Not to worry, we will contact you if you miss a payment. There will be a penalty charge of £15 if we haven’t received anything 7 days after the rent was due.

I am cancelling my subscription – how do I return my art?
