Shiny Octopus is a platform for the very-talented-yet-undiscovered artist who wishes to share his/her/their work with the world and who believes in our mission to protect planet earth and her oceans. Our artists embrace our ethos and are happy to give us exclusive rights to sell their art.

We curate our collections with great care and we have big plans to diversify the type of art we feature, so please don't hesitate to send us your portfolio even if your work differs from what you see on our site. Our application process is simple and even though we are meticulous about our review process and the quality of work we represent, we embrace all types of art.


In an email, please send us the following:

1. Bio or artist statement (who are you, what you do, how you do it)

2. Your portfolio - a PDF or link to your website will do

3. Sample pieces you wish to submit

Once received, we'll review your submission and be in touch for a personal meeting to discuss specifics (sale agreement, terms, pricing, etc.).
