About Artedly

Welcome to Artedly, a unique service that matches Tokyo-based cafes & open spaces with digital artists & photographers to help exhibit their work to a public audience. We are also a community based in Tokyo that holds monthly social events for photographers and digital artists. If you have an interest in digital art/photography or are an artist yourself interested in displaying your work, please follow us on Instagram, and we'll keep you up to date with everything we're up to! Artedly aims to bridge the gap between artists and galleries and make cafe exhibitions an affordable reality for many, all the while making the process as straightforward and stress-free as possible.

How it works

We are currently working with a closed group of 18 artists; however, however in early 2023, we shall be collaborating with several more Tokyo-based cafes and will be in a position to extend the opportunity to exhibit in Tokyo to all photographers and digital artists across the world.

Step 1
Get in touch

Send an email to [email protected] to introduce yourself and your art, confirming which cafe and dates you would like to hold your exhibition.

Step 2
Confirmation with Cafe

We will speak with the cafe you're interested in, get confirmation that your work is a good match for them, and inform them of your exhibition dates.

Step 3
Cost breakdown & Payment

We will send you a cost breakdown which includes printing costs and exhibition fees. Our goal is to make costs as low as $100 a week for a 3-frame exhibition.

Step 4

We will then request digital versions of your artwork, which we will print at our Tokyo-based printers. All frames are 500 × 707 mm, so we kindly ask for your work in B2 format.

Step 5
Your Exhibition is Live!

Before your exhibition goes live, we deliver your work to the cafe and place it within their frames. Once your exhibition is live, we will share it via our Instagram account.

Step 6
Sell Prints

We offer the option for you to sell prints both via our website and to customers directly in cafes. You receive 65% of all profits, meaning your exhibition could easily cover its costs!

We look forward to introducing several more cafes in early 2023 and with it, the chance to collaborate with more artists from all over the world. If you would like to get in touch and discuss holding your own exhibition in Tokyo, please don't hesitate to contact us via [email protected] or via our Instagram page.
