HOW BLAWO WORKS

Blawo.com provides a platform where artists can showcase and sell African artworks to art lovers.  As regards purchasing original African artwork from an artist, Blawo.com only act as a platform for artwork and artist showcase, we do not sell on behalf of the artist. If you like the artwork created by any artist, you can contact the artist directly and order for your desired artwork for a fixed price.

We are not directly involved in the sales transaction between the artists and consumers. Therefore, we have no control over the safety, legality, and quality of any artwork, or the accuracy of the artwork showcased by the artist. Blawo.com cannot ensure that an artist or consumer complete a transaction of the purchase of African artwork. Please note that we cannot transfer legal ownership of any African artwork to the consumer from the artist. The artists and consumers are both responsible for the payment of all taxes, insurance cost, shipping and other applicable fees.

If there any dispute arises between an artist and a consumer, Blawo.com ( our founder, directors, employees, subsidiaries, agents and joint ventures) is released from any demands, claims, damages of any kind, suspected and unsuspected, disclosed and undisclosed, known and unknown, arising out of such disputes.
