Empowering young artists around the world!
Piqart is an online platform that allows young artists to safely and easily sell their artwork, while sharing their precious vision and inspiration with the world.
At Piqart, we believe that young people beautify the world.
We believe that when young artists share and sell their art online, they build self-confidence, develop their art and business skills, and use the internet towards positive goals. Let yourself be inspired by these kids’ vision and talent!
I’m Shani Servetter, Piqart’s founder. I’ve always had a passion for art. Back in 2008, I opened an art gallery in a popular tourist town, which went on to welcome thousands of visitors annually, and share amazing art talent with the world. At the same time, my children were growing up and creating their own masterpieces. Their creativity and talent was the impetus to make Piqart a reality.

How it works:
We conduct open art contests with awesome prizes for young artists (under 18). Art will be judged based on creativity, uniqueness, talent, use of color, and message. Winners and runners-up are determined by our team of judges.
When we launch our main site in early 2019, as a young artist, you can create your own PIQART store and become part of the PIQART community to start making money online with your art!
And for all you art lovers out there, you will find amazing art from young artists around the world to have in your home, office, or for gifts.
