High quality, affordable art from reputable sources
OzBid Auctions has access to a wide variety of quality art, sourced from reputable galleries, artists directly or private owners. We have an in-depth knowledge of Indigenous and contemporary art whilst holding strong relationships with the Aboriginal communities of Australia. In fact, 70 per cent of all artwork we sell is Aboriginal art.
Ozbid is committed to supporting Australia’s Indigenous artists and their communities. Felicity Robertson Nampitjinpa a renowned artist from Yuendumu, NT who was exhibited in the 2017 Mosman Art Prize and 2017 Salon des Refusés said,
“I like working with Ozbid because they are like my family. They have helped me sell my paintings all around Australia! They have taken care of me and because of that helped me to take care of my family too”.
Indigenous art is the heart of OzBid. All Indigenous artworks come with a guarantee of authenticity, meaning that the art is what it claims to be, and the revenue from the sale directly benefit the artists and their communities.
OzBid sells a range of art, valued from as little as $50, through to $50,000 – meeting a range of budgets and specifications – so everyone can have the opportunity to purchase art at reasonable prices!
By sourcing all its art directly from the artist, private owners or reputable galleries, OzBid provides Australian contemporary and Aboriginal artists, exposure to new markets that would not have been possible under the traditional gallery system.
