Our Belief

 

"We have art in order not to die of the truth.”   

                                                                                                                      Friedrich Nietzsche

 


Monkey Arm, based in Atlanta, Georgia, provides a collection of truly unique, curated original paintings and prints dating from the late 19th to early 21st century.  Monkey Arm does not limit itself to one or two art movements, and does not discriminate against any style.  Everything belongs.  
 


Most of the artists in Monkey Arm's collection have passed us by, and some are either unknown or forgotten.  It is Monkey Arm’s mission, its goal in life, to remind everyone who these artists are and why their work deserves love and attention. 

 

Each piece within the collection is hand picked based on wonder and intimacy, talent and skill, history and memories, value and respect.  It is Monkey Arm’s hope that its patrons will find something that they will fall in love with so that it may become part of their own collection, something to bring comfort and to occasionally distract from some of life’s less favored truths.
