Mobilize Art is an e-commerce site where some of the most talented artists and designers in America sell original and limited edition art.
With most pieces priced below $100 apiece, buyers with limited budgets finally have a better alternative to generic, mass-produced prints and posters. This is art that reflects our specific tastes, styles, and interests. This is art that we’re not going to find on someone else’s walls!
Imagine a world where art is not ‘just for millionaires’, but where everyone can access unique artwork that reflects their individual tastes, styles and interests. Imagine an America in which more people enjoy the pleasure of living with original and limited edition art.
Mobilize Art believes this can be reality. Some of the most talented emerging artists and designers in the country are coming together on Mobilize Art to make this reality.
How? Talented artists and designers create stunning pieces of art. Many of these artists only think to sell a small fraction of the artwork they create – primarily for a few hundred or few thousand dollars apiece. But that can be as little as 10% or 20% of all the art they create. They don’t think to sell the watercolor sketches that they gift to friends and family, photography prints they trade with other artists, or the vivid illustrations they store under the bed, in the closet, or on hard-drives.
Some of these pieces may be valued at $75, $40, or $150 apiece. Making them available – in addition to the pieces priced at a few hundred dollars – would allow more Americans the pleasure of owning and living with original and limited edition art.
As more Americans are exposed to art that truly reflects their specific tastes, styles, and interests (at prices they can afford), we will ignite the collective American passion. We will encourage a greater appreciation of and demand for art. We will have an America that values art and artists.

Growing up in a family that loves art and with a mother who is an amateur oil painter, Zubin developed a tremendous love and respect for art.
As a college student and young professional he couldn't afford the art he liked, couldn't bring himself to buy a generic print or poster, and didn't know what other options were out there for him. So he lived with bare walls for years (and hated it)!
When he realized that artists and designers (including fashion designers, architects, transportation designers, industrial designers, etc.) didn't think to sell most of the art they created, he tried to find out why. Those conversations got artists excited, and introduced Zubin to the opportunity that is now Mobilize Art. He is harnessing his background in business to help get more original and limited edition art out in the world.
Zubin has surrounded himself with advisors who have a wealth of experience in art, design, entrepreneurship, business, and technology. He would be grateful for any help, feedback, advice or guidance you may have for him.
