A bit about us...
Art Pharmacy is an online gallery that sells artworks by Australian-based, emerging and established artists. Our aim is to make affordable art accessible to everyone. We have original prints, oils, watercolours, acrylics, photography, etchings and more. Art Pharmacy is here for art lovers and collectors – from those who already have substantial collections, to those who are just starting out. The biggest, grandest collectors in the world started off with just one piece of art, so we believe that anyone can start an art collection, even on a budget.
We are passionate about supporting and nurturing emerging and established Australian-based artists, and fostering innovative dialogue around their work. All artists represented by Art Pharmacy have their own ‘Artist Page’ featuring their artworks, interviews, and information about their career in the arts. When you buy a piece on Art Pharmacy you know that you are supporting local artists in Australia. We believe there are so many undiscovered artists out there and we want to do our bit to help you find them.
Art Pharmacy also runs pop-up exhibitions around Sydney where you can see artworks and meet the artists. Sign up to our newsletter for information about upcoming events and other news.
All the artists on Art Pharmacy have been specially selected by founder and Director, Emilya Colliver. Emilya has an extensive background in the visual arts having completed a degree in Art History from SOAS & UCL in London, and working for some of the top art galleries and institutions in the world, including Lisson Gallery, Hauser & Wirth, The British Museum and Eskenazi. Emilya also worked with a private collector for years, James Birch Esq. where she looked after his vast collection of art featuring works by globally renowned artists such as Damien Hirst, Francis Bacon and Gilbert & George (to name a few). This experience has given Emilya the skills to be able to spot emerging artists.
As well as running Art Pharmacy, Emilya also sits on the MCA Young Ambassador Committee, a tour guide for the Sydney Contemporary Art Fair in September 2013 and recently a nominee for the ’InStyle and Audi Women of Style’ & 'NSW Business Chamber' Young entrepreneurs.
Emilya was the Fair Director for The Other Art Fair, Sydney, 10-13 September 2015, at Central Park, Chippendale.
