It's World Ocean Day, So Why Not Buy Some Ocean-Themed Artwork From Newly Launched Tide Studios
The Debrief: Buying art nowadays isn’t just about it being right for Pinterest, it’s got to mean something, to be personal to our surroundings, so where better to look that the newly launched Tide Studio?

Imagine if you could buy carefully selected and curated art, and support photographers, artists and illustrators from around the world AND support a charity dedicated to protecting our waters? You’d do it, right, especially as today is World Ocean Day? Buying art nowadays isn’t just about it being right for Pinterest, it’s got to mean something, to be personal to our surroundings, so where better to look that the newly launched Tide Studio?
Created by creatives, for creatives, Tide Studio provides a platform for artists and photographers to sell ‘limited editions or exclusive prints to their collectors.’ All works featured on the site are curated around the theme of the ocean, and water – and Tide doesn’t stop there, 10% of every sale will be donated to Surfers Against Sewage, an organisation helping to protect and cleaning our waters.
From photographers like Akila Berjaoui to artist Miranda Lorikeet, the water theme is evident throughout. Co-founder, Natalia Bagniewska tells us that the idea came to her and Nikki McClarron (the other half of Tide Studios) when they lived together in London. Both had strong connections to the sea, with one growing up in Devon and both spending their childhoods surfing. Combined with careers in picture editing, the duo also share the same keen eye for art and photography.
While buying art might not be something we do on a daily basis, platforms like Tide Studio are offering a platform to source the type of work you want to hang on your wall, and that’s something we’re on board with.
