Well, here we are: New Year’s Eve, 2021 – a time to look back on what we can all agree has been quite a unique year. Our team at Partial would like to end the year with a big thank you to each and every one of you for all that you have done to support Canadian artists and artists in Canada this year. It’s because of you that Partial has been able get closer to our mission: More art on more walls. 

Thanks to you, we have been able to celebrate and support our wonderful artists through a platform that is easy and, just as importantly, as fun as possible for seasoned and new art collectors to access great works of art and for artists to discover new audiences and a welcoming home for their work. Over the course of this year, we expanded our artist base and are proud to say that hundreds of incredible emerging artists from across the country showcase their original work on Partial’s platform.

Of all the hundreds of artists on Partial, this list of 21 artists managed to draw the most views over the course of twelve months in 2021. From paintings to photography, landscapes to pop art, your favourite works to look at were as diverse as the artists that created them.

Allow us a quick moment of reflection: 

  • This summer, Partial formalized a partnership with The Indigenous Curatorial Collective in which 1% of all sales and rentals from Partial is donated to this wonderful organization. 
  • After partnering in 2020 with a premier developer, Theory Condos in downtown Toronto finally opened to the public this year and proudly houses several original works from Partial in their latest condominium development art collection.
  • In October, we launched an art sommelier service, an online consultancy where interested buyers can work with a curator at Partial to help them find a piece of Canadian art that’s perfect for them. We’ve had an incredibly positive response to this service. 
  • This holiday season, Partial celebrated our artists by offering with unique three gift options for art-lovers and art collectors alike.
  • And, Partial kept making news! In November, co-founder Tammy Yiu Coyne was featured in numerous publications including the Globe and Mail and in December, Tammy was the special guest on Bet On Yourself with Fred VanVleet and Derek Folk talking about her inspiration and her journey to start Partial.

Thank you for making this such a wonderful year for Partial by helping us celebrate and support Canada’s artists. We are so grateful to you.
