Leasing Art

How it works

In a diverse workplace, employees are more likely to remain loyal when they feel respected and valued for who they are and their unique contribution. Placing representational artwork in an office/home environment triggers an emotional and instant effect on the viewer. The challenge is overcome when the aim is to enrich your workspace, create an atmosphere both welcoming and engaging, but also culturally inclusive. We can agree first impressions are extremely important to clients, but more importantly now, is our working environment and the effect on our wellbeing. Artwork stimulates employees to be more creative and in turn, more productive.


JACookeArt creates a range of original oil painted artwork, unapologetically covering themes that reflect the lives, experiences and challenges of people from the African diaspora. Many of the pieces have been created to positively document the achievements of individuals, whether this is for their tenacity, commitment and fight for equality, or to shine a spotlight on inequity and injustice.


The cost of leasing artwork is relative to the value of the artwork. Our drive is to encourage the inclusion of diverse artwork within Art and Corporate Social Responsibility strategies. Artwork can be leased for durations between 3 months and 5 years. 

If you are seeking guidance and assistance to select art or you require a specific commissioned piece of art for room styling, please email us for a consultation. We will agree a mutual time to discuss your art leasing requirements.

We will complete a full assessment of the spaces required and suggest suitable paintings based on the specifications. We can provide the option to have fitted and floating frames to match the furniture and fittings within your space. This can be added upon request to fit in with your overall design concept. There are options available, if you would like to purchase the original artwork at the end of the leasing period.

Incorporating artwork within a working environment can promote your organisation's identity, image and professionalism and add either a calming or stimulating influence, based on your selection.

You can schedule to rearrange your choices of art periodically to freshen a space, increase creativity and stimulate the ambience to suit your audience. Leasing original artwork supports artists as they build a themed collection for future exhibitions. 

In the event you become attached to the artwork as often happens, a rebate based on a percentage of the leasing fees against the purchase price is available for those with an existing leasing contract.

Our process

We meet with our client or potential client to determine preferences, scope and budget. A survey of the property is performed, to identify the locations that are best suited for the placement of the artwork. A presentation featuring several artworks in situ will be drafted, selected by our team in response to the initial conversation and based on your requirements. If you are not sure how to style your rooms, we are happy to assist with the selection of artwork based on the requirements and follow up consultations. Once the selection and agreement has been made, we will arrange the transportation and installation of the artwork under supervision. We will arrange the removal and collection of all artworks at the end of the term of the lease. The opportunity to purchase original art depending on the artworks in discussion. 

Leasing Periods

JACookeArt has a selection of original works available for leasing periods of 12 weeks, 6, 12 or up to 60 months. Leasing fees are calculated with a base rate fee for each leasing period and a percentage of the artwork value per month.


All pieces of artwork are required to be insured to the full value of the artwork.
