Who we are?

Because Art Matters (BAM) is a Lisbon born and based playground for creative minds that promotes and amplifies synergies between artists, art lovers and a community of collectors searching for high-end aesthetics, exclusive and limited-edition artworks that break formal and conceptual boundaries.

We draw on a roster of talented and authentic artists whose global exhibitions, brand commissions, award-winning work and influential spheres, spanning various expressions of contemporary art - from street art, illustration, digital painting and the infinite connections in between.

We combine the artist’s experience and a collaborative dialogue to curate exclusive premium work from fine art to high-quality limited-editions for the independent thinker. All timeless. All certified.

The Choice of Museum Fine Art Paper

We too are collectors and the choice of the right paper is a top priority. All limited edition printed artworks by BAM, are produced with Hahnemühle Museum Etching, a natural high-quality white cotton art paper with an inkjet coating specially optimised for FineArt printing, created for customers who are looking for something special. This heavyweight textured paper does not contain optical brighteners and is characterised by its high stability. The finely textured surface with fine felt structure lends FineArt prints added depth and a three-dimensional effect. Combined with the pure cotton base, this creates a wonderfully soft tactile feel and artistic impression. The premium matt inkjet coating produces excellent print results. Colours are wonderfully vivid, the depth of the black truly stands out and details are reproduced perfectly. The acid- and lignin-free Museum Etching meets the most exacting requirements for age resistance and is ideal for reproducing works of art.

BAM limited edition prints are Vegan!

The Museum fine art paper we use is certified by independent institutes to be highly resistant to ageing and are vegan, in order to meet the highest requirements of customers.
