Artists earn 60% of subscription fees. Uploads are free.
Artist fees are split amongst all artworks viewed by each subscriber that month. No gas fees or hidden costs, it’s a guaranteed pot split by views.
Built for security and privacy
Secure upload via the Artist Portal. Users can’t download your work and you can remove it at anytime.
Artists keep full copyright.
It’s a non-exclusive rental license, so you can show and sell your art anywhere else you’d like. It’s about getting your art in front of more people, not restricting it.
Really nice to be able to see something so straight forward and secure for artists.

Isn't digital art all about NFT’s?
NFT's are about owning unique tokens. It’s the traditional art world model of scarcity.

Novari is about experiencing unlimited art and building a collection. It's based on abundance.

Both models compliment each other, but if you’re more into ownership, try Hic et Nunc.
How are artists payments calculated?
Each month, 60% of each subscribers revenue is paid directly to artists. This is the 'Artists' Pot'.

This is based on the artworks viewed by that subscriber, that month.

For example, Jess views two artworks in June, for 10 hours each. That's 20 hours in total, with each artwork taking 50% of her total viewing time.

The respective artists for each artwork will therefore get 50% each of Jess' Artists' Pot.

This is intended to be fairer and more transparent than having a standard but very low payment per ‘view’, as has proved challenging on other streaming services.
Do the artist payments reward artworks that are viewed for longer?
Yes. The aim is to built an art collection that you return to again and again, and to reward the artists who produce this high quality work.

Instagram already has the couple-of-seconds-at-most art viewing experience nailed, this is a different approach.

This is evolving so let me know any suggestions to improve!
Is it free to join as an artist?
Yes! Sign up for free on the artist portal and upload, manage and remove artwork easily. Any issues, let me know and I'll take a look.
Do I own the artwork?
No, the artist does. Your subscription gets you unlimited access, so you get the experience of ownership without the cost.

Yes, he did.
Something missing? Let me know!
It’s surprisingly hard to experience digital art in full quality and build a real collection, like with music. As a fan, your options are:

- prints (expensive, take up limited space and not native format)
- NFTs (awkward to view, focused on ownership of tokens not experiencing art)

It’s all built around scarcity, deliberately making it hard to experience.

That’s why I’m building Novari - to give people who love experiencing digital art a way to do so accessibly and affordably, whilst paying artists fairly.

I’d love you to give it a try (and better yet, let me know how I can make it better!).
