Our Manifesto :

Nothing is sacred anymore.

Everything, however, is customizable. It's remixable, shuffle-able, and about a million other things that involve taking something original and making it original-er. Making something absolutely unique. Totally yours. And we don't just mean ownership. We mean affecting something that affects you.

We're here to let people personalize art.

Yes, you read that right. Personalized art. Blasphemy? Hardly. Authorship went out the window with Duchamp's Fountain, and Warhol's Madonna. Once an artist puts their work out to the world, everyone sees and feels it differently anyway. We're just giving people the tools they need to craft an even more personal connection with the pieces they love. It's not as giant of a leap as it seems. Or maybe it is. But we don't think so.

It's simple. Open-minded, un-stuffy artists submit their work to our site. Visitors see their work, their hearts explode (in the good way), and they remix, customize, and personalize each piece with the sophisticated, elegant tools we give them. Then, we turn it into high quality fine-art prints and canvases and ship it all over the world. Walls get arty. Artists make money. High fives get high five-y.

But hey, we're not for everyone. We get that. If you're an artist who sees this as bastardizing your work, that's fine. Carry on. No hard feelings. But if you're someone who sees art as visceral, personal, and emotional objects of affection, then hell, this might just tickle your fancy.

The bottom line is that we're here to help elevate the art that people love. To bridge the gap between people and the pieces they love. If that sounds like something you're into, then we love you. If not, well, we love you too. Different strokes, folks.

What's in it for me?

If you’re an artist, most importantly, you get paid real money. That comes first. Then the real nice fringe stuff falls in line. Royalties from every sale, greater, worldwide exposure, crazy expanded marketing reach, to name just a few.

How can the art buyer customize my artwork?

Black magic, mostly.
But when that runs out (and it always does), they use our tools to scale, rotate, re-position, and re-color your pieces to suit their personal tastes, while at the same time retaining the integrity of the original artwork. It also allows them to actively participate in a creative experience that will have more meaning to them than just a passive purchase. This is also done with magic, but it’s more beige than black.

Can I see some examples?

Do bears crap in the woods?
Of course you can. Just point your click-mouse here

I don't like the customizing option, can I avoid that?

The short answer: No. You can't, although the option to buy the art 'as-is' will be always be there by default. We don't expect most of our customers to use it, but hey, we put it there anyway. That's just how we roll.

The less short answer: You wouldn't go to a monster truck rally if you hate monster trucks. The same logic applies here. Customization is the whole point of what we're doing. This is what makes JuicyCanvas, and the art it purveys, so different. It's an experiment in bringing customers closer to the art they love, so if you're brave and don't mind making money by selling your work, give it a try. If not, that's cool. We still think you're attractive.

What are my copyright protections?

JuicyCanvas + You
In paraphrased legal speak, we’re like a soft blanket on a spring day. We’re here for you, but we’re not overbearing and we don’t make you sweat like a dirty, filthy pig. If that lousy metaphor didn’t shake the leaves off your tree, we only have a limited commercial right to sell your work through our site to art buyers. We do not retail the right to use work for any other commercial purposes other than promotions for JuicyCanvas.

goBack ↑

Will my artwork be exclusive to JuicyCanvas?

Hell no. We're all for expanding the reach of your art, not limiting it with exclusivity. That would be sort of conflicting with our whole business model. So while we think we'll get your work out to and in the hands of people around the world, you own the full copyrights and have full license to do what you will with your work.

Is there a contract to sign?

No tom foolery. No shady small type. We’re not into contracts.
But seriously, in the interest of protecting you and your rights, we have crafted an simple agreement that makes this more of a mutual partnership than anything else.

I prefer not to use my real name,
can I use a different name?

Absolutely. Feel free to use any one of these:
Abe, Lenny, Gina, Tommy the Torso, Metal Face, Vinny Tombascino, King Calf, or Momma Dulce.  !

What styles of artwork do you accept?

Currently, we’re only technically able to accept illustrations, drawings, graphic designs, and basic paintings. Head here for some examples.

We DO NOT accept:
We do not accept Photographs, Photo-Realism, Fine Art, complex paintings, or bags of large, marked, sequential bills. Sorry.  See bad examples here.

How many artworks should I submit?

For the Portfolio Review:
Please try to keep it under 50.
We love you, but there are a lot of portfolios coming in.
You understand. 

For the Website Gallery:

What if I do not have a Paypal account?

Option 1 : Get one. Really. It’s secure and super useful.
It only takes 30 seconds and it’s free.
It takes 30 seconds to Sign Up! > Paypal.com

Option 2 : Get a debit card from Payoneer.com
Then we can add funds to that account and you can use it like a normal debit card. ( *some fees may apply )

goBack ↑

Who sets the prices?

In the interest of simplicity for version 1, we set all the prices to be the same for all artwork. Plus, it lets the buyer find the best art for them and not have to worry about the cheddar.

goBack ↑

 

What about limited editions?

All JuicyCanvas artwork will be produced as limited editions of 50. BUT, since we run the site, that number might change in the future. 

goBack ↑

 

Do you allow nudity, gore or profanity art?

Not only do we allow all that, you get a special place in our hearts if you combine all three. But seriously, we’re open minded, so submit away.

Can I set final print sizes?

In version 2, yes. Not now though.

goBack ↑

Can I too create customizations to the artwork?

Yes, but not for version 1. We plan to roll this out for version 2.

goBack ↑

What is the final artwork that customers get?

Currently, we are offering two kinds of prints.
Two really awesome kinds of prints, specifically.

Streched Canvas
A museum-grade matte poly cotton blend that is a performance leader in color gamut, and print permanence.

Archival Paper Print
Archival stable inks on 100% cotton rag paper.

Am I able to stop displaying my pieces on the site at any time?

Yes 100%! Anytime you feel your art is misbehaving. Pull it out. However we also reserve the right to do the same, as well as the right to fulfill any orders placed prior to removal, and the right to continue to using your Content in marketing and promotional materials if such materials were created prior to removal of the Content.

goBack ↑

Do I have to pay any kind of fee to join the site?

NO. We are here to pay you, not the other way around.
But we do ask you to focus and make incredible, bowel-moving, out-of-body body of artwork ;-)
