Online art gallery Art2Arts leads the way for boom in buying art online

In spite of a fall in the international art market, it was revealed that purchasing art online is more popular now than ever. Celebrating its tenth year in business this month, online art gallery community Art2Arts is an innovator in virtual art retailing, leading the way as a first-stop site for more and more buyers seeking to find original artwork at the click of a mouse.

In April, the The European Fine Art Foundation (TEFAF) released its annual report of the international art market, revealing the growth of the online art sector. During 2015, it grew by 7% to an estimated $4.7 billion in trade, with sales of art online now representing 7% of the overall value of art sales- an increase of 1% from last year. Where these figures could see the rise of virtual art retailers being formed, established online art gallery Art2Arts can secure its place as a leading platform for what looks set to be the future of selling art.

Michelle Gibbs, director of Art2Arts commented, “We are delighted by the findings in the TEFAF survey, with this news coming at such an exciting time for our company. Although reports of the international art market as a whole slowing down seems worrying, perhaps we are entering a transitional period for the fine art economy, keeping up with changing consumer habits and new demand to buy art online. Art2Arts has a very full calendar ahead, as we look to welcome in new artists to our community as well as receiving continued support from our already established artists. For any buyer looking to discover art using a modern method, head to today to buy your first piece of art online!”

Although no reason was noted in the report as to why buying trends were changing, browsing on the Art2Arts online art gallery can reveal how simple it is to find and buy the perfect painting online. With easy to use filters and search categories, even the most niche art fan can find original artwork to suit their preferences in a matter of minutes.
