Let us tell you a story. It’s a story about art, Brooklyn and friendship. Are you sitting comfortably? Then we’ll begin.
Why Art? Why Brooklyn?
Today we’re launching Fiercely Curious
. It’s a home for Brooklyn art and Brooklyn artists. Why did we do this? It’s simple really - we have friends who are amazingly talented and inspiring and we want to share their work and stories with you.
It quickly evolved from this little idea of giving them a voice into what you see before you today, with more artists coming to the site very soon!
Know Your Maker
We think it’s important to know where things come from. You should know your maker. So with Fiercely Curious we’re telling some stories about our artists and about their art. We want to be a cozy space to come grab a drink and keep yourself warm on long winter nights.
We hope you’ll get to know these artists as well as we do because they’re the real heroes not us in this adventure.
"Seek and learn to recognize who and what, in the midst of inferno, are not inferno, then make them endure, give them space." - Italo Calvino
Tiny Experiments In Doing
There is no time like the present so we’re launching today. We offer this up as a tiny little expression of “we did something. What do you think?”. We hope this site evolves with you. This experiment of determination, love and passion might just become something great. Let us know what you think: firstname.lastname@example.org
Believe in Local
We want to build something local and lasting. Art is sustainable and can be handed down through generations. Maybe some of their words will linger with you as it gets passed down too! All our artists are living and working in Brooklyn. We think it’s an important part of the story - to encourage you to meet the artist behind the work and to feel a connection to them. So:
Free Shipping in NYC & Brooklyn
- just put the code “Brooklyn” in at checkout if you’re living locally and we’ll hand deliver the art for you for free. Nice.
Book a studio visit
- We’re giving you as many pixels as we can but if you still want more - come and see any of our art in real life technicolor by arranging a studio visit with any of our artists. Just drop us a line at email@example.com and we’ll help you out.
