While traveling, have you discovered stunning artwork that you had to have, but had no way of transporting it back home? In 2014, I took a trip to Vietnam and fell in love with the people, the culture and most of all, the artwork---so many unbelievably talented street artists! I came across so many paintings that I knew I needed to have, but for those of you who have ever been in the same situation, you know bringing a giant painting back to the states with you is no easy task---especially when you have more countries left to visit before traveling home. I began thinking about all the unsold art around the world not being purchased because of the hassle involved with getting it back home with you. Additionally, I thought about all the artists potentially losing business because of this, too.
Spending time with some of the street artists, and really getting to know them and their families is ultimately what inspired RS5TravelArts. Almost immediately following my initial trip, I decided to take my savings, travel back to Vietnam and began to purchase as many paintings as I could, in the collection section of this site.
RS5TravelArts hopes to continue to support struggling street artists around the world, while making high-quality, unique art more affordable and easier to
