Selected Artists' Works
About Selected Artists' Works
‘Selected Artists’ Works’ (SAW) is a Glasgow based, independent platform established in 2016 to facilitate sales for emerging and unrepresented artists. The aim is to not only support the artists involved and also promote an engaging culture of buying and collecting that will help the wider artists community moving forward.
One of SAWs key objectives is financially supporting the artists and offering a low commission rate ensures that 70% of each sale goes directly to them. In addition, SAW also aims to support the buyer through a one-to-one tailored service offering advice on framing, delivery, hanging and curatorial matters.
“All to often I have seen potential first time buyers daunted by the contemporary art market, intimidated by white wall galleries and too shy to approach artists directly. The end result is they almost certainly leave empty handed and the work goes back into storage”

Founder of ‘Selected Artists’ Works’
In response to this, Fine Art Photography Graduate and founder of Selected Artists’ Works, Sam De Santis, wants to take people on a journey through the acquisition process. Sam is a firm believer that buying artwork should be enjoyable and exciting for all involved and strives to do this through the SAW platform.
Sam has curated a richly diverse, and ever expanding collection, currently representing over 140 works by 10 national and international artists. The complete collection of works can be found at www.selectedartistsworks.com
