Millie Kelly


The motive behind my current works derive from the notion that art should be accessible to everyone. I noticed such a divide within the contemporary art scene when I moved to London from Devon and I wanted to create works that were visually engaging and exciting to the majority. I want my personality to flourish within the works, I want them to be bold and beautiful and create a dynamic within a room on their own. I am inspired by the world around me; politics, literature and conversation. I often use popular imagery from my childhood in an attempt to connect a memory with the viewer. My paintings do not necessarily portray a particular meaning, but they are an accumulation of thoughts and ideas, harmonised on the canvas to create a visually sound composition.

We’ve got you covered

  • Investor first

    After each funding round that closes, we start selling your favourite artist’s works. At first all proceeds will go towards repaying the investors. Once all investors are repaid in full any additional return is equally between artists, investors, and ARTPIQ.

  • Expertise

    Before you start investing in art, we will offer you all the information you need to make a sound investment. Firstly, we will do a business plan together with the artist to assess how much money they need, how many works they want to create, and over what time period they need the funding.

  • Marketing support

    At ARTPIQ, we do everything we can to make sure your investment will turn out great! Through extensive online and offline marketing, SEO, and social content strategy, we will make sure the art you invest in is out there for potential buyers to see.
