Who is behind MTWalls?
MTWalls was founded in 2011 by two young Flemish entrepreneurs Thomas Madoe and Edmond Van Steenberge. The goal of MTWalls is to create a platform through which promising local artists can sell their works. The audience MTWalls is targeting is all people with an empty wall (hence the name) who want to fill it with artworks of local talented people at an affordable price. MTWalls works by the principle of a publisher where it takes care of all logistic problems, production and promotion for the artist. This allows the artist to focus on the creative process. On top of this, MTWalls wants to do business in a sustainable way. Therefore it tries to limit the impact on the environment (e.g. use of green materials) and actively supports local society projects by donating a part of their revenues to a local society project. To raise awareness for these community projects, MTWalls lets its clients decide which project they want to support.
Which artists are you working with?
MTWalls is looking for the hidden pearls, the needles in the haystack! Promising local artists with loads of talent but that have stayed undiscovered up to now for the larger audience. We look for our artists namely in Belgium (Flanders, Brussels and Wallonia), the centre of Europe and crossroad of many European cultures because we believe that there is as much as talent in this country as anywhere else.
How do you select your artists?
The selection of the artists takes place in different steps. An initial screening is done by the people of MTWalls. First of all, an artwork needs to have a certain art level and preferably also a story. Secondly the work needs to be technically good. Finally we look at the "wallability" of the work. Would the work fit on an empty wall. Given that the work meets these three initial criteria, it is assessed by a professional jury.
How about the donations to the society projects?
MTWalls wants to stand out from other companies by acting in a sustainable way. We want to give something extra to society. Therefore we donate a part of the value of a sold work to a local society project dat strives to a fundamentally better society. The buyer can choose between two pre-selected projects. After the sale and donation, the story does not end. We commit ourselves to keep our custo;ers informed of what happens with their donations.
How are the artists rewarded?
MTWalls can be considered as a publisher of art works. We publish works of art in limited editions, with which people can fill their empty walls. The artist can focus on the creative part and we take care of the rest. We generate publicity for the artist and promote his work. We also materialize his creative work into a form that people can fill their empty wall with. The artist receives a fair royalty fee for each work sold.

How does the payment work?

Do you also take orders from outside Belgium?
Sure, only since the sizes of the works differ a lot, we might need to charge you an extra fee to ship the work to you destination.

How long does it take before my order is delivered to me?
