Their gallery has a unique twist - They sell low-cost prints of some amazing artwork, and donate 10% of proceeds to the artist's chosen charity. Nice idea.
The 'low price, high volume' model is in play here. They sell art that is very affordable. But to succeed, I guess that means they have to sell lots of it. I'd be interested to know if this is a full time gig for someone.
The artwork is of a really high standard though. I'm particularly enamored by Richard Wilkinsons' stuff, like 'Red Balloon', pictured here.
BlueFlip is open to anyone, and you can submit your own art here. However, they don't just accept anyone's art. In their words:
... We'll warn you right up front that we're pretty finicky about what we do decide to sell. Take a peek at the prints available right now on the site. If you think your work is of a similar caliber, then by all means send us an email with a link to your work or as an attachment. If it blows our socks off then we'll contact you back and get the ball rolling!It's a clean looking website, with great artists. BlueFlip have what it takes to make a great online gallery.
