Most of us would probably love to have more art hanging on our walls. But where do you buy it and in an affordable way? Richard Smolin created the website because he found traditional means of buying and selling art too murky and cost prohibitive.

Since doesn't have a shop it can save on costs. It also doesn't take as large of a commission as most auction houses or dealers and those savings get passed on to both the buyer and the seller.

It's an unintimidating way of getting into the art world. And for collectors it's an easy way of unloading something they've grown out of.
