“There is art in everyone; there is an artist in everyone”

Welcome to ahkri

There are tens of thousands of artists who long for a platform that showcases and values their art. Due to a lack of opportunities and insufficient funding for marketing, their talents largely remain unnoticed. Our mission is to provide a platform for such talented people. With every purchase, an artist across the globe is given a platform to celebrate their art and duly paid to pursue their passion.
In short, ahkri is a global community.
Let us celebrate art, create more relations, and spread happiness.

If you are selling mature content, we ask that you be respectful of differing sensibilities.

More Details:

Pornography of any sort is prohibited on Ahkri, whereas mature content is restricted.
Although pornography can be difficult to define, an item generally qualifies as pornography when it contains printed or visual material that explicitly describes or displays sex acts, sex organs, or other erotic behaviour for the sole purpose of sexual arousal or stimulation.
We define mature content containing printed or visual depictions of human genitalia, sexual activity or content, profane language, sexual wellness items, violent images and explicit types or representations of taxidermy. When deciding whether mature content crosses over the threshold into pornography, we take into consideration the explicitness of depictions of sexual activity or content.
