"They always say time changes things, but you actually have to change them yourself." Andy Warhol
After speaking with artists around the world, I have seen a revolution occurring, an excitement, a passion, for a new way of showing, viewing and selling art. Just a few years ago, one of the greatest achievements of all time has entered our lives, and that is the internet. Those reluctant to use the internet to their advantage, have become obsolete, replaced by those willing to embrace the power of the internet. That doesn't mean we will all be communicating by computers all day. Rather, it means that we will be able to communicate with, and share ideas with people halfway around the world, as easily as we can with our neighbors. What we take for granted today, would have been impossible to imagine 35 years ago.
The online art market is expected to reach 10 Billion Dollars (US) by the year 2020. Online art sales are growing year over year at a substantial pace, while other art sales have stagnated or declined. That is the reason for artist.com. We recognize the trends of the future of art sales, and are here to help artists grow their sales, promote themselves, and devote their lives to creating art, while we help them with the sales and marketing.
With our streamlined selling platforms for art reprints, and our simple internal communication system allowing for sale of original artwork, artists are turning to artist.com to help them grow their sales, promote themselves, and have their artwork seen across the globe.
Artist.com is proud to sell original artwork for our artists, connecting them with buyers both near and far. Through these relationships, artists can build a substantial base of buyers in cities and countries across the globe, establishing the groundwork for future art sales. In addition, our reprint department offers high resolution detailed prints of artwork on various types of canvas, fine paper and metal. We offer the highest quality stretching, matting and framing. For those who desire to show their flair for style and individual expression, we produce artwork on some of the finest products, including beautiful shoulder bags, computer bags, gift wooden wine boxes, mugs, shirts and more. Our artists are paid monthly.
In summary, the outlook for art sales has never been better. Artist.com will make it easy for serious artists to upload their artwork and begin selling. As Andy Warhol said, "They always say time changes things, but you actually have to change them yourself."
