Support local artists, score some amazing art
With everything going on in the world, everyone can be affected in many ways. A lot of artists have been financially affected by COVID-19, some completely losing their income. In times like this, it is easy for independent artists to feel alone.

Cream Town is an online shop that has popped up to help support these artists and provide some amazing art to the public at decent rates. The website will be selling limited edition (10 of each) A3 prints from an amazing variety of artists, from illustration to photography.

The online store launches on the 19th of March at 7 PM. You can view and purchase the limited artworks here:

Each artist involved in the project is asked to provide three works in which they want to sell through the platform. There are no requirements for artists to join, it is open to everyone and Cream Town is leaving applications open to new artists even after the launch. If you are an artist definitely get in touch!

It was amazing to see the way that the creative industry in Australia got around and supported the communities during the bushfire. Creating artworks and donating all profits (sometimes all proceeds) to these communities. Now more than ever it is a great time to give back to the creative community and show our appreciation for the arts.

This project is in collaboration with Brunswick print studio 'Hound & Bone Studio', who will be dealing with all the printing, shipping and handling of all works sold. By helping out the artists you will also be supporting a local print studio.

" At Cream Town, you can support local artists and get yourself some amazing new pieces to keep you company during this isolation period."

Is the price tag on these beautiful works of art a bit out of your budget but still want to help support the artists? Cream Town also has a donation option, where you can donate any amount you wish, knowing that it will be evenly split between all artists involved!

It's a tough time for all, not only in Australia but worldwide. It's important now, more than ever to help out where you can, show your support of this project by following on Instagram and spreading the word to your friends and family.
