Addressing a continuously widening gap in the art market, Artwide is the first digital platform for buyers and sellers functioning on an international level. In an age where communications and connection are more important than ever, this international platform has found a means to modernise an increasingly traditional market, connecting collectors, museums, galleries, institutions, and more. Artwide caters to a diverse clientele, providing sellers with an extensive yet selective audience of buyers, who in turn have access to the vast range of works across the platform.
Established in 2013 by specialists across the art, legal, banking and technology sectors, Artwide has provided a solution to the outdated methods of art sales. With its own in-house platform, the Artwide team ensures secure and confidential transactions, inventory and storage management, shipping, and access to an extensive art database. The content across the platform is managed and curated by a team of experts, allowing members to enjoy a personalised experience with on-demand access and consultation on acquisitions and sales.
Before gaining access to the platform, every member must first be vetted and approved by the Artwide panel. When the membership has been granted, individuals will be eligible for one of fifteen profiles depending on who they are, their needs and the nature of their business. Following an introduction into the community, members can then request and reserve artworks they are looking to acquire, and publish works they are looking to sell.
The art market has continued to provide a stable investment for buyers, and unlike other markets, has proven its ability to fare international politics and economic fluctuations. As online sales continue to be driven by younger generations, the digitalisation of the art market is trending the path for the future, tapping into the culture of quick results and reliable turnarounds, making art more accessible than ever before. The appeal of art investment lies not only in the prospect of increased economic gain but also in the establishment of a unique and personal collection.
In line with the current global health pandemic, Artwide has become a pioneering force in the demand for an increasingly digitalised art market. In light of the decrease in international art fairs, Artwide has provided a solution, ensuring that neither clients nor the wider art market is disadvantaged by these unprecedented times. By reducing, and in some cases even eliminating the need for travel and face-to-face meetings, Art wide encompasses the values of the emerging art world, providing a space where every member can engage with the market from the comfort of their own home.
Artwide provides a quick and efficient sales route for its members. By combining and connecting the respective benefits of auction houses, galleries and dealers, Artwide has become the champion of art sales. The specialist team across each service provides every member with a personal approach and the highest quality service.
Over the past years, Artwide’s success has led to expansion across Europe, America, Asia, and the Middle East. In keeping with the international nature of the brand, artistic diversity is reflected in the broadness of the art available to members. Artwide is host to a range of works that span from the eighteenth century to contemporary pieces, catering to every Artwide member, from foundations to budding collectors looking to build their collection. Artworks across the app are hand-selected by the curatorial team and include an impressive roster of artists. Recent artists that have featured across the app include Claude Monet, Donald Judd, Barbara Kruger and Christina Quarles. For any individual looking to expand their existing collection, sell their current collection, or start a new collection from scratch, Artwide is here for your every need.
