We don’t sell art from this website.
Instead, we provide this online platform for artists to share their art and invite visitors to go to their websites, contact them directly, join them on social media, and buy their art directly from them.
Manhattan Arts International has advanced the careers of thousands of artists from around the world. Artists apply to become members or have won memberships in our juried exhibitions.
