Works by Friends (WBF) is an online gallery whose purpose is to support talented emerging artists, and offer collectors a curated selection of prints at an accessible price. WBF fosters a close partnership with the featured artists, with the intent of creating an intimate buying experience from a collective of friends. In addition to our online presence, WBF organizes gallery pop-ups to help artists and collectors meet, and to organically grow our community. With time, gallery pop-ups will show art from artists around the globe. WBF founder Miranda Lundberg was born and raised in Stockholm, Sweden. Growing up with an artist mother, Miranda has been surrounded by art for as long as she can remember. After working in the music industry in Stockholm, London, Paris, and Boston, Miranda established herself in NYC, working for a creative agency. Seeing artist friends struggle to support their painting practice, and the lack of good affordable art triggered the idea of Works by Friends: building an art community for friends, by friends, where everyone is benefiting.
All of our works are printed by local studios who's main concern is quality. Giclee printing is a digital fine art method that uses archival ink. By using archival paper and ink we can make sure that your print will last for 150+ years. The art works are either professionally scanned or photographed depending on the nature of the work to produce the most accurate depiction of the original.
We are proud to print on Hahnemuhles Fine Art Hemp Paper (290 GSM)! The hemp plant that provide the cellulose require minimal maintenance, grow quickly and don’t need any pesticides. Their rapid growth means that more cellulose can be produced on the same cropland than with other raw materials, and they also require much less water, helping to save valuable resources and protect the environment. Supported by the Green Rooster initiative environmental projects on regional and international level.
We offer framing to all of our prints. The frames comes in three different colors, black, white, and light wood. All frames are made custom in a local framing studio and are manufactured to the highest quality with wood, and durable plexiglass. The light wood frames are more costly to produce hence the slightly higher pricing.
All of our prints are Limited Editions. All prints come with a Certificate of Authenticity (COA), signed and numbered by the artist. The works featured in our gallery will never be reproduced in this medium again. When you purchase art from WBF, we guarantee that you are investing in a unique print series.
We ship within the U.S., Canada and Sweden. For the rest of Europe we recommend to buy the print unframed to avoid any potential damage that might occur when shipped overseas. Shipping costs are calculated at checkout. Unframed prints are hand packaged and protected in shipping tubes, and framed prints ship in carefully packaged boxes. Allow 2-3 business days for your unframed print order to be processed. Custom framed prints will be processed and manufactured within 4-7 days. After processing time, refer to the delivery time stated in the checkout, 1-5 days depending on the courier service. A tracking number will be sent to you as soon as your package has shipped.
We try to provide accurate visuals of the artwork featured on our site. Nonetheless, if you're not happy with your acquisition please email us at hello@worksbyfriends.com We’ll gladly offer you a store credit within 10 days of receipt of the artwork. Custom framed pieces will have a 20% processing fee. If your works arrive damaged, please ensure WBF is notified within 14 days of delivery.
