How do I find the paintings on the site?
The paintings are in the Home and in the Shop.
In general the paintings are grouped in sets with the same formal and conceptual language.
Each set is presented separately at Home, and the paintings available for sale are listed in the Store.
Clicking on the thumbnail image of a painting will take you to the detail page of the same painting.
There you will find the technical sheet of the good work as well as other notes. (for example: Mini Shot – Berlin 1)
The call option appears in the step referred to in the previous paragraph.
What happens if I buy a painting?
Adding a painting to the cart will take you to the cart page.
Then you can proceed to checkout, where you will be asked for your details and payment.
After making the payment you will receive an automatic confirmation email with details of the work you purchased and an indication that the order is awaiting payment confirmation.
Once payment has been confirmed, you will receive a second email with your order validation, invoice, tracking number and estimated transit time for you.
This step may take up to 4 business days, depending on the payment method you choose (MBWay, Credit / Debit Card and Paypal).
The artwork will be sent to the address indicated on the form.
If I add a painting to the cart will I need to complete the purchase?
No, whenever you add paintings to the cart you can remove them on the “cart” page.
How can I remove items from cart?
Items in your cart will remain there unless you remove them or complete your purchase. To remove items you do not wish to purchase simply follow the steps:
1 – Click on the Cart icon in the menu to view your Cart;
2 – Click on the red X on the left side of the work you want to delete.
Security, Payments and Privacy
Is the site secure?
Yes, the site is protected with an SLL security certificate issued by Let’s Encrypt Authority X3.
We undertake to keep this certificate up to date, as well as other programs necessary for the proper functioning of the site.
About the SLL certificate you can find more information on the Let’s Encrypt website.
Are there any advantages to paying online?
Yes, both for your safety and mine.
By making payment through the site, you are automatically protected by the bank security services that record the successful transfer, as well as the service provider.
MBWAY is the payment method managed by the IfThenPay platform that ensures the security of the payment process. https://ifthenpay.com/
Stripe, which manages Debit / Credit card payment, is a platform specializing in online payments and ensures complete security in the payment process as well as in the refund process. https://stripe.com/en-us/about
Paypal offers support in case of a complaint or dispute, which I can find out on the Paypal website. Ensuring both parties and helping to determine the best resolution. https://www.paypal.com/webapps/mpp/paypal-safety-and-security
Added to this is the insurance of the carrier that protects the work during shipment, https://www.ctt.pt
Is paying through the site safe?
Yes, because payments are made through a payment service provider window.
That is, for example, if you pay with Paypal the payment is made in a window of Paypal itself, and thus the security requirements that Paypal offers are guaranteed.
I’m having problems with payment, what should I do?
If you have problems paying, you can contact me by email, so you can follow along.
However, I suggest you see the following paragraphs about problems with MBWAY, Debit / Credit Card or Paypal.
Debit / Credit Card Issues
If your credit card is being declined during purchase, try our troubleshooting tips below.
If you still have problems, we advise you to contact your bank or credit card provider and ask for their assistance.
Double-check the information entered during checkout:
Has your billing address changed recently?
Did you enter the correct CVV code?
Did you receive a new card with a new expiration date?
PayPal has several security measures to protect its users against fraudulent activity.
For this reason, PayPal may occasionally prohibit a buyer from sending payment.
If you have trouble using your PayPal account, please contact PayPal directly for assistance or visit the website for troubleshooting information.

Some works already include frames, this information is explicit in the technical sheet of the work.
Drawings are shipped rolled up so they are not ready to hang.

When the signature is not displayed on an artwork image, it will be on the back or side of the piece.
In addition to the signature the works will be accompanied by a certificate of authenticity printed on paper, affixed to the coast of the work.
