Vancouver, British Columbia -- (SBWIRE) -- 11/26/2012 -- Only 2 months since launching, fine art platform Artsia has already attracted 600 of the world’s leading contemporary fine artists from around the world, making it the fastest growing gallery for sourcing professional contemporary art on the internet.
What’s special about that is not only the number of artists, but the fact that all of the artists have gone through a rigorous selection process.
This means that the quality of the work on the site is similar to what you would find in discerning physical galleries in London and New York, except you can shop from anywhere, and can browse from over 5,000 piece of curated work in one place.
“In a short time, we have seen an amazing response from both the art community and buyers alike, and have started to see some significant sales coming in” says co-founder Colin Mansell. “What’s interesting is the international angle, with a number of pieces being bought by buyers in different parts of the world, and the fact that you can now find great art from all corners of the globe in one location”.
The website was launched by a pioneering team from around the world, representing both technology and the traditional fine art world. The team is led by web entrepreneur Colin Mansell, and curated by Emily Peterson in Vancouver and Catherine Higgs in London, with the editorial under the control of Editor Lindsey Davis in New York.
The number of artists will be kept to a curated selection, always ensuring consistent quality of work and a variety of styles, from all corners of the globe.
Artsia is an international online art platform, representing work by the Society of International Artists.
Artsia is a truly international organization. The curatorial team is led by Catherine Higgs in London UK, whose fine art pedigree includes working for Christie’s and Philips De Pury. Colin Mansell, Artsia’s CEO is originally from the UK but is now based in Vancouver, BC, while our Editor, Lindsey Davis is based out of New York.
