From the sound of it, collecting art can be intimidating. The connotation is always that you have to have a lot of money, need to know the popular artists, or frequent exhibitions and fairs. But art communities are trying to change all that by democratizing the art market. drybrush Gallery, for example, is selling works of art online for as low as P2,500.

Opened in November 2020, the site supports artists pursuing their passion during this difficult time. They have a wide variety of personalities, from long-time painters and sculptors to teachers or farmers that became self-taught artists.
