Spokane, WA (PRWEB) January 18, 2006
Mike Davis maintains a professional art studio in Hoboken N.J., where he lives and works. His works on Artocracy are photomontages that move between political statements, abstraction, and realism. Sean Hojnacki lives in New York after completing his Masters degree in Philosophy in Ireland. His photographs explore the “intervention upon the anonymity of urban space.” Karl Saliter, a sculptor who lives and works in upstate New York, branched out to make some digital prints for Artocracy. Karl uses his digital prints as an opportunity to explore concepts of light.
Artocracy began offering downloadable artworks one year ago with fifteen artists. Over the past year it has now grown to over fifty artists. The Website currently receives numerous submissions each month, only accepting 10% of the work. The work is chosen through a balance of content, education, and imagery. All of the artists have to be working artists, currently showing their one of a kind pieces in galleries or exhibition spaces.
Artocracy works to support visual artists through the sale of digital and downloadable prints. Seventy-five percent of the proceeds go to benefit the working artist to support their one of a kind pieces.

Artocracy.org was founded in January of 2005 by Megan Murphy to support visual artists. We would like to see artists have the freedom to dedicate more of their time to cultivating their work rather than working several jobs. We realize that a digital print is not a one of a kind artwork; they are not meant to be. These prints are to bring challenging ideas, innovative artworks, and people together. Artocracy is about the freedom to buy or sell art without financial constraints. Artocracy is pro artist.
