Frequently Asked Questions

I have a business can I deduct your artwork?

Yes, you can. Buying and renting art is especially for companies financially attractive as it is tax-deductible. There are several options possible. Above € 1000 you put the art on the companies balance sheet and write it off to the residual value in, for example, five years. Just like you would do with a computer or a car. There is an additional benefit when buying. Because for business investments you can get a deduction of the profit, the so-called investment deduction. Then you can deduct a percentage of the investment from the profit and thus pay less tax. Since there are several options possible please consult with your accountant about what would be the best option for your company.

Do you rent or lease your art and what are your fees?

I do. For € 100 per month you can borrow an artwork and enjoy it. In case of theft or damage, the costs fall on the tenant of the work. Transport and hanging costs also fall on the borrower. Preferably, the work is collected personally. If you rent or lease my artwork you will automatically receive a Platinum Art Angels membership. Which means besides lending an artwork you will also be invited to a VIP Art Angels-day (Private viewing or special presentation). You will receive VIP Art Angels-invitations. (Such as front row seats at artists talks or after opening dinners). You will receive 20% discount on another work that you might buy. (Only with a 1-year membership). You will receive 1 free art book. And you will get access to new works in progress and weekly art-news. 

For more information check the Platinum Art Angels membership.

Do you have a return policy?

I don’t. If you are unsure to buy the work, you can choose to lend it first. See above.

Do you accept commissioned projects?

I do. If you are ready for a unique artwork. I will draw up a Commission Agreement to list the aspects we agreed upon in advance. Such as payment terms, deadlines, framing (if any), delivery of the work, installation of the work, and copyright. 
This would also mean that you automatically receive a Diamond Art Angels membership. You will also receive VIP Art Angels invitations. Such as private viewings or special presentation, front row seats at artists talks or after opening dinners. You will receive 20% discount on another work that you might buy (valid for 1 year).
