The global online art market has doubled its value over the last 2 years from $6 to $12 billion (2019/2020) and is expected to grow further.
Aartzy is one online art gallery which has used the physical restrictions of the pandemic to their advantage. This is a venture which began as a simple online store in 2018, one which sells paintings, sculpture and digital prints is today a professional outfit which not only educates and inspires aspiring artists but one which cooperatively works with artists, their families and stakeholders at large to build a platform which supports a greater faction.
“One day I was looking for some street art. It was a gloomy and drizzling day and sadly that day I found only one artist who was selling his artwork from the back of his van. He was a street artist who made his living by selling his paintings, that too mostly to tourists”. This was the beginning of Aartzy, as told by Janaka, its founder. With over 2 decades of professional experience in Business Administration, Janaka realized the dire need, the potential amongst the local artists and the lack of representation and took it upon himself to create the opportunity for artists.
According to Janaka, credibility and reliability is essential to ascertain the trust and growth of a business. Although it has been just over 3 years since the initiation of Aartzy, which is relatively young for an eCommerce website; their professionalism, commitment, and product & service effectiveness was recognized as ‘Canadian Art Store of the Year 2020/2021’ by the Corporate Livewire Canada Prestige Awards team. The success of their operation was well acknowledged and can be considered a significant achievement for this young company.
With this recognition, many international artists have approached Aartzy to display their work. While the initial focus was on local artists, they have now opened doors for international artists as well, honoring the overwhelming response they continue to receive. Aartzy team believes that artists should focus on engaging in their respective crafts and improving their artwork while selling their work should be left to professionals. This is the commitment and service promise given by Aartzy who offers superior levels of service benefits to artists while their fees in comparison to other platforms is significantly less. This is a highly profitable arrangement for artists as the primary objective or Aartzy is to uplift the living and working standards of artists.
