Own Art



The Contemporary London is a proud member of the Own Art scheme. With Own Art we can offer our clients the opportunity to purchase art and spread the costs over ten months with an interest free loan. The loan amount can be from £100 – £2500 and can be used as a part payment. No deposit is needed and the loan application can be completed in person or over the phone and the loan decision is made in a few minutes.


Own Art is available to all UK residents over the age of 18, subject to status. You must be able to meet the following criteria in order to be approved for a loan:

Over the age of 18
A permanent UK resident
Working at least 16 hours a week (employed or self-employed)
A retired person in receipt of a pension
If you are not working but are married to or living with a partner who does have a full time job, then you may still apply provided that your partner is happy for their employment details to be included on your application form.

If you meet the criteria please contact us and we will be pleased to guide you through the application process. As with all credit applications, this requires you to fill in your address, contact, employment and income details. The application is assessed in minutes and once approved the artwork is available for immediate collection or delivery. Proof of residence is required such as a drivers licence.


To purchase art using the scheme please contact Michelle info[@]thecontemporarylondon.com or +44(0)7747 635 823.
