Join us in an exploration of the diverse movements, artists, approaches, and mediums that have shaped the "state of art" as we know it today. Each month we select a theme and dive into its role in the arts and how diverse factions of the art world have addressed and/or been influenced by the topic of choice.
In this week’s episode, I sit down with Artfinder CEO Jonas Almgren. Artfinder is an online art marketplace, but it’s not to be confused with an Ebay-style shopping experience. In fact, it’s far more the Tinder of the art world. This week we dig into the future of online art sales, how artificial intelligence could be your art advisor, and how Artfinder is more of a dating site than an Ebay-style marketplace.
Used by over 850,000 artists and collectors, Artfinder is an online art marketplace that enables artists to sell their original work directly to collectors. Artfinder is an international platform, with artists from over 100 countries. The platform’s mission is simple: to allow artists to make a living from their art, and to allow art lovers to enjoy works in their home according to their budget.
Whether you’re buying or selling, you can find artfinder on their website https://www.artfinder.com/ and on Twitter @artfinder and Instagram @artfinder_com
