How long does it take you to dispatch an original painting?

Original paintings are shipped within 24 hours if they are in stock. Please note that some original paintings are on exhibit in galleries, but are still available for sale. In this event, Ari will contact you with a more exact time frame for dispatch. It is advisable to contact Ari before purchasing an original painting, to check availability.

 

How long does it take you to dispatch Limited Edition Prints?

If the prints are in stock, they will ship within 24 hours. However, if the prints are not in stock – which is often the case – they are ordered from Ari’s printer within 24 hours. With shipping dispatch time included, you can expect your print from within 14 working days (in stock), and up to 25 working days (special order).

Electronic Reproduction


Electronic reproduction on this site is done with the best technology available. However, there is a reduction in the quality of the images. The scans used on this site have been compressed as much as possible so that their download time is fast while remaining as close as possible to the original artwork.

Each individual painting is specified "ORIGINAL" where applicable, whereas prints are specified "LIMITED EDITION PRINT". A limited-edition print will never be falsely designated as an original.

 

If required, a Certificate of Authenticity can be provided to buyers. Please specify this when ordering.

WHAT IS AN NFT? WHAT DOES NFT STAND FOR?

Non-fungible token.

How do NFTs work?

At a very high level, most NFTs are part of the Ethereum blockchain. Ethereum is a cryptocurrency, like bitcoin or dogecoin, but its blockchain also supports these NFTs, which store extra information that makes them work differently from, say, an ETH coin. It is worth noting that other blockchains can implement their own versions of NFTs.
