Arteza, the leading direct-to-consumer arts and craft supply company, announced today that it has raised $24 million in Series A funding from the growth equity firm Volition Capital.

Arteza also announced that Larry Cheng, Managing Partner, and Dave Gordon, Volition Capital’s Chief Executive Officer, had joined the Board of Directors.

Arteza’s unique focus on customers and its 750+ products, which are available directly to students, hobbyists and professional artists, has fueled significant growth and customer loyalty.
“The supply industry of the arts and crafts has been stale for decades, and our vision has been to breathe new life into the market with a fresh approach to products, trade and customer travel,” said Mike Koshatko, co-founder of Arteza. “As a company with a proven business model and an eye to further growth, we have found a natural partner in Volition Capital. This investment and access to Volition’s expertise and guidance will keep us well positioned as the leading brand of D2C art supplies. “That’s right.
