Stock art has lately become the subject of much heated discussion among artists. The sale of secondary usage is the inherent right of the artist as the owner of the copyright. But in recent years, companies have sprung up that specialise in the sale of stock art. These companies who promise big money to the artists who sign up with them typically take 50% of the sale as a commission for their "trouble".
Here at Slantville, we feel that these middlemen are not only unnecessary, but actually work against artists. No commission is taken on stock sales made through the Slantville Stock Exchange. You, as the art buyer, can view groups of stock images and then deal directly with the artist. In this way, not only are you being fair, but you know that your money is being spent on art rather than bureaucratic big business.
