Would you like to learn more about the art available on Sedition and a bit about its history? Then join our Director Rory Blain as he walks you through it:
Each limited edition has a Certificate of Authenticity signed by the artist and the Director of Sedition and a secure record to verify the artwork is authentic. Upon purchase of a piece of art, the artwork is registered to a collector's account, a central records database and is traceable through image identification technology.
Sedition’s long-term goal is to decentralise the artworks ownership ledger by utilising blockchain technology, which provides for a transparent and decentralised way to track ownership. Sedition has started to utilise blockchain technology step-by-step as of the summer of 2022. To learn more about Sedition NFTs, visit out NFT section.
You get a numbered limited edition in digital format (or a unique artwork if that is the format available) with a unique certificate of authenticity and online storage where your artwork and certificate are held.

Printing would not do justice to most artworks on Sedition! The best experience on Sedition comes from viewing the works as the artists intended - digitally.
We do not currently offer the functionality to allow you to download or print your Certificate of Authenticity, however, not to worry - you can view your certificates at any time in your secure vault.
Yes, of course. You can purchase as many editions as you wish.
Obviously, the maximum number of editions you can buy is the number of available editions for a particular artwork.
Yes they can! Unless you choose to set your profile as ‘private’.
After you have purchased an edition, you appear as a collector on the artwork’s page. Other members can see your collection by browsing to your profile. However, if you wish, you can make your profile private in your member settings. In that case, your profile will not be indexed by search engines either.
You have several options.
You can keep the artwork as a memory of earlier days, or gift the artwork to another collector, friend or a family member. Alternatively if the edition has sold out, it can be resold on the secondary market on our Trade platform. Keep it, give it, or sell it - the world is your oyster!
