#TOAFtakeover: Own Art

Welcome to #TOAFtakeover, an Instagram series that gives you an insight into the work and life of our artists.

This week The Other Art Fair had a very special #TOAFtakeover from our Fair Partners Own Art. They told our Instagram followers a bit more about their scheme ahead of the fair next weekend!

Hi, we’re Own Art. We make buying contemporary art and craft easy and affordable by partnering with art galleries and fairs around the UK to let customers spread the cost of a purchase over 10 months, completely interest free.
We’re super excited to be taking over The Other Fair’s Instagram account today, sharing our top tips for collecting at the fair.
Find out more over at Own Art.’
