LFTA is a UK registered CIC (Community Interest Company) working for the benefit of visual arts and artists. We started with a free artists' trading website in the UK and are planning a major expansion into several other territories through 2017.
LFTA aims to connect visual artists and photographers to modern online resources so they can sell their work in accessible product forms like greetings cards, prints, calendars etc. We say “accessible” because this is precisely what we’re aiming to achieve – to get the beauty of your art out there in formats that more people can access and appreciate.
The initiative provides the very latest ecommerce technology free of any charge to the artist and without restrictions on choice of work to present.
We aim to allow an artist to sell their work in printed formats, whether or not they already do so. It does not aim to earn from the artists' sales (it’s a not-for-profit venture), but aims to pass the benefit of a sale to the originator and owner of the work - you!
