SCROLL TO BEGIN

I'm here to guide you, through my own experiences, to overcome the fear of buying original art pieces and help you create your own personal space that brings a smile each day.

Hi, I'm Andra.

Let me help you express yourself through original art.

With Artstanding, I want to help people see the true beauty of art which, except the aesthetics part, is about finding the joy of expressing your feelings, thoughts and imagination without any boundaries. 

I started Artstanding because I realised that, for most people, buying original art is perceived as being intimidating and costly, and I wanted to challenge this mindset.

I believe that buying original, hand-made items shouldn’t feel as exclusive as going into a gallery and it also shouldn’t break the bank. Art is something that comes from within anyone and should be accessible to everyone.

I'm Andra Balasa.

An Amsterdam based marketing freelancer, art enthusiast, beginner painter and entrepreneur with big dreams. In love with colours, textures, stories, traveling and all things organised.

Standing Up for

GET YOUR MANIFESTO

We are trained to think that only people with a proper education in art, who possess a broad understanding of what art styles are and what makes a good painting, are the ones that are meant to buy it.

Somehow, along the way, buying art has become an exclusive and intimidating process for most people, myself included, and that just doesn’t feel right!

There is nothing wrong with being an expert and knowing everything there is to know about art, but the truth is, most of us just aren’t…and that’s ok as well.

The art we buy is as much about who we are as it is about the artists who create it. 

Everyone knows beauty when they see it, so don't let the lack of “knowledge” stop you!

If this strikes a cord, get your free manifesto poster so you'll be reminded everyday of why art truly matters. 

MANIFESTO

Buying art can be intimidating.

Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time.
